Superheroes don’t battle in a vacuum, and supervillains care very little for who gets caught in the crossfire, and sometimes a regular man has to try when the guys in tights ain’t getting the job done.
Writer: David M. Brown
Plot/Art/Letters: Shannon Gretzon
Victor from Exspastic Comics is the story of a regular guy who loses it all to a supervillain and decides to do himself, what the heroes have failed to do. While this is far from is superhero comic, it takes place in a superhero universe. And while it’s a tale of revenge, it’s more of a horror story, or even a cautionary tale about revenge. Where Victor is coming from is understandable, what he does though makes him far from heroic.
Writer David Brown and artist Shannon Gretzon reunite for a dark story that is (stay with me here, I’m trying to find the right words to articulate my thoughts) in some ways a post-Watchmen (or post-1986), direct to video, black and white boom, action/revenge comic that is actually kind of disturbing the more I think about it. Well done, fellas.
Victor is available on ComiXology for $0.99 here. Check it out.

It sounds really intriguing as a concept … but why are they called exspastic comics? That’s an interesting choice of name I just wondered if there was a story behind it, any idea?
I’m not sure lol I have interviewed Shannon twice on here, once via email and once in a killer super long podcast form and I think I intended to ask both times and got sidetracked and forgot both times lol
lol, a mystery then…
The world needs a little mystery, not everything needs an answer. We can always speculate wildly and start inaccurate and slanderous rumours though (Don’t mind me I haven’t had my coffee yet)
