Sarcastic Heroes & Other Strangers

INCOGNITO_coverI recently found myself at the neighbourhood Heroes World looking at graphic novels with a friend. Past all the Walking Dead comics was Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillip’s Incognito.

Incognito is different from what I know of comics (disclaimer: I know nothing about comics) — it’s more than just action. It’s a dark and hilarious story. The characters are bitterly sarcastic. It’s everything you want after a long day at work.

Zack Overkill was once a super villain but he’s had his villainous tendencies drugged out of him by the FBI and has been placed under the Witness Protection program. Part of his disguise is that he has to hold a boring office job. The boredom drives Overkill to start using drugs but then his villainous super strength starts coming back… and he starts helping people like Spiderman for shits and giggles.

The story gets crazier from there. I’ve already bought the next one in the series, Incognito Volume 2: Bad Influences.
