Official Press Release
Everything was going smoothly for the television debut of California’s super team, The Order, until a group of Soviet super-weapons showed up looking for blood! The Order #2 jumps right into the fray with rising writer Matt Fraction (Immortal Iron Fist and Punisher War Journal) and talented artist Barry Kitson at the reigns of this spin-off from the red-hot Initiative storyline!
Although The Order extinguished the Infernal Man and prevented a raging fire from blazing through the San Gabriel Mountains to the heart of Los Angeles…is this new team ready to take on a whole squad of seasoned super villains?
The Order has already received outstanding reviews from fans and critics everywhere. Jesse Schedeen of IGN.com exclaimed, “Matt Fraction is quickly becoming one of the best writers in Marvel’s arsenal, and I for one can’t wait to see what he has in store for this book’s future.”
“This may very well be the book that solidifies Matt Fraction’s placement among the top spandex writers of this decade,” said Koben Kelly of Newsarama.Com, adding, “This is the best work from Barry Kitson I have ever seen …He’s completely knocking this one out of the park.”
Plus, what would a Los Angeles-based super team be without some good, old-fashioned Hollywood scandal; a PR queen starts her spin on the Golden State heroes, a mysterious dead body shows up, and of course, a superhero sex tape! (Take that, Hollywood!) If you’re looking for some classic Marvel action with a Hollywood-style twist, then look no further than The Order #2!
