A Review: MEDISIN #1

The Fellowship was fortunate enough to obtain a copy of MEDISIN #1 from Action Lab Studios’ Danger Zone imprint. Jeff Dyer and Mark McKeon write, David Brame draws, Joaquin Pereyra colors, and Adam Wollet letters.

Where do supervillains go for health care? One named Malady has figured it out. He recruited the best and brightest in the medical field, and makes them work for him on pain of death. And his services allow him to control the world’s supervillains. But one of the doctors, Ethan, is a little different. And maybe, just maybe, he can figure a way out of this mess.

Character development is a big part of any good story, and this book does it very well. There are lots of characters here that we get to know, even down to the hospital AI. And the puzzle that is Malady and the contract is a daunting one, building the stakes of the story. The art really gives us a sense of the destruction in this world, both personal and property.

This is a clever twist on the concept of what happens after the action. It’s dark and it’s serious, and it has a story with a lot of promise. I’m eager to see where it takes us.

MEDISIN #1 is available now from your local comic shop, or online at actionlabcomics.com.
