Action Lab/Danger Zone comics brings us the Aberrant series, written by Rylend Grant with art by Zsombor Huszka, this is a truly unique part of the genre (and it’s for mature audiences). I was able to acquire the first four issues of the comic book series at LA Comic Con and spoke with Mr. Grant who gave me these issues. He did not undersell me on his series one little bit.
A U.S. Army Special Operations Commander named David loses his entire unit after a devastating attack by superhumans. He chooses to leave the Army and join Article 13, who is policing the superhuman activity. David ultimately wants revenge on eccentric billionaire superhuman Lance Cordrey, but he soon learns that the celebrity may be a patsy. David now must confront a twisted conspiracy that led to the death of his men.
Don’t worry, no spoilers. I would just like to applaud the original story and attention to detail Grant provides in this comic book series. It takes the superhero genre and flips it on its head, making you question motives, wonder who the good guy, and where the line is drawn. Normally, I am not a fan of such gray plots, but I found Aberrant to be a cut above the rest.
