Our group of d-list costumed villains set out across the city to hunt down the lethal, criminal-mastermind the Stickman, and collect the lucrative bounty on his head. Hoping to find him at an upscale nightclub for super villains they instead encounter something more terrifying-the unhinged vigilante hero, The Insomniac, out for revenge.

  "I was hooked from the first page! Minor Threats is delicious, villainous dark pop that churns up the world of the marginalized and serves up a decadent and dangerous feast, all presented in glorious bombastic visual eye-fuckery that has re-ignited my love of comics. At last, something cool more

    The Minor Threats creative team has developed such an interesting world with compelling characters that it would be a crime if it ends after the next issue. The real threat here is that the overall story stops after this limited run concludes next month. Read Full Review

    This issue of Minor Threats felt like a faster read compared to the last two issues which were filled with plenty of writing. That is not a bad thing, this issue had more action. Which is weird to say because the last two had some great action too.

The funniest part of this issue was when they enter a time-warped part of the city and run all around in different dimensions being chased by different iterations of The Searcher. This was hilariously drawn and almost feels like a parody on "the multiverse" of comics we all know about.
