Written by Harvey, Ringo and Eisner Award nominee Mark Russell (Exit Step Left: The Snugglepus Chronicles) and Eisner and Ringo Prize winner Steve Lieber (Superman’s Pal Jimmy Olsena), the series follows a “rag-tag” (ouch, Kara) group of heroes led by Red Tornado (Double Ouch, Kara), who are heroes-for-hire-for-anything. Be it the latest DC alien invasion or a kid’s birthday party, the team’s services can be kept up and running through their on-demand Hero app, and according to DC, no task is too big or too small.

In a series where “heroism meets capitalism,” the hard-working new team includes gangbusters and other superheroes like the Minute Man (and Plastic Man too?) who try to figure out who’s behind the new venture and Why.

How this series somehow survives Blue Beetle and Booster Gold, we’ll be shocked.

DC’s announcement describes One-Star Squadron #1 as packed with “heart, valor, and humour” and should belong to anyone who has ever done a “shameful, mind-numbing, or petty act”. done, which the publisher believes everyone else is.

One-Star Squadron #1 goes on sale December 7 and includes a cover by Lieber and a one-of-a-kind cover by Steve Pugh.

Doesn’t look like One-Star Squadron will ever be on Newsrama’s list best superhero teams of all time, but it seems that the whole thing.
