Available this week on comiXology from Action Lab: Danger Zone, VILLAINS SEEKING HERO is a creator-owned series that follows the complicated yet humorous lives of a middle-aged has-been, the self-proclaimed king of the nonexistent Spirit World, & a mute muscleman of mystery as they try their best to be the greatest super-villains around.

In a world of frequent events and constant reboots, VILLAINS SEEKING HERO is a back-to-basics comic book with a not so basic premise that anyone and everyone can hop into. It's something familiar, but entirely new! Creator/writer Louis Southard adds: "I hope the reader can have a laugh and enjoy themselves while reading it, but also notice that there's a larger, more complicated story at play in the background with the possibility of twists/reveals dropping at any moment."

Southard goes on to say: "I started messing around with the idea for this book when I was 16. Just watching it grow and develop over the years into something real is a very surreal experience. I never thought that something like this could happen to someone like me. There's a lot of love in this book and I hope people can notice it."

The first 5 issues of VILLAIN SEEKING HERO will be available on April 8, 2020. The first volume, which collects the first 5 issues, along with issues #6-8, will be up on comiXology on April 15, 2020. And there will be even more supervillain hijinks to come!
