Things get tense for the superhero labor union in this third issue of the new series people are calling Mad Men-with-capes
The third issue of Kyle Higgins (Batman, Nightwing), Alec Siegel (Captain America,Avengers), and Rod Reis’ (Justice League) all-new ongoing series C.O.W.L. reveals an unexpected plot twist and things become dire for the threatened superhero union. Likened to popular television shows Mad Men and The Wire, C.O.W.L. explores heroes in a time of tumultuous change, as they struggle to combat corruption, navigate politics, and maintain the public’s faith.
"With all the plot and betrayal, the tone of the series will get darker and this will definitely be reflected in the art..." added Reis. "You can expect more red in the future issues!"
"Geoffrey Warner, Radia, and John Pierce make decisions in Issue 3 that are going alter the course of their lives—as well as C.O.W.L.'s future," hinted Siegel. "To say things are about to get more complicated is an understatement."
C.O.W.L. #3 arrives in stores on 7/30, and will be available for $3.50. It can be pre-ordered with Diamond Code MAY140700. The final order cutoff deadline for retailers is 7/7.
