Health care for super villains! Criminal mastermind Malady has recruited a team of down on their luck physicians to provide medical aid for the world's worst bad guys.

And when one doctor goes rogue, the rest learn a terrifying lesson from Malady.

    An interesting introduction to a thought-provoking question, with some peripheral ideas that slightly detract from the main narrative. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams May 9, 2017

    The premise is great, the characters are interesting enough to care about, and there are more than enough intriguing subplots introduced here to make the prospect of picking up the second issue sound pretty damn appealing. Sure its a little rough around the edges, but MediSINs mix of human drama and unapologetically realistic superhero combat makes for a thoroughly enjoyable read. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Erik Koehn May 12, 2017

    Medisin #1 is a surprising, disturbing, perhaps even cynical, exploitation of superhero conventions that potentially offers an intriguing on-going story. This is a dense and overly explained first issue. Despite its flaws it's a satisfying single issue read. At the very least you will not feel ripped off by trying. And for those who love dark, gritty, violent deconstructionist superhero stories this might be your new favorite comic. Read Full Review

    The art for this title, like most any, had its big strengths and weaknesses alike. As a whole, the style was rough around the edges, but was never blatantly a mess. Action scenes, along with a handful of creative character designs, were probably the stronger part of the book. Read Full Review
