Title: Medisin # 1 Publisher: Action Lab Comics Written by: Jeff Dyer and Mark McKeon Art by: David Brame Colors by: Joaquin Pereyra Letters by: Adam Wollet Price: $ 3.99 US Rating: 3 out of 5 stars Website: www.actionlabcomics.com Comments: We see how badly a super villain can suffer in a fight. It is not a pretty sight. Now years later a medical unit is formed to handle the injured villains in battle. Well someone has to. There are so many super villains and heroes here. So of course they do fight a lot. Lots of battle scenes but they are not the focus, the injuries caused are. The villains here are who this medical unit are for. The medical unit here are something new to comics. The dynamics of the team are something unlike anything you have seen. The team is made up of doctors and a ship equipped with medical supplies and equipment. The art is made to show the super villains and the heroes to to a lesser extent but mainly it focuses on the medical team. The tie in with a past villain is a nice touch. The purpose for the team being formed is thoughtful and who formed it adds a touch of mystery. Great characters that just need to be fleshed out more. This issue is a good start to the series.

They actually entire the field of battle to help. Malady a mysterious figure runs the operation from afar. Do as he says or pay the consequences. The art is undefined and even comes across as smudged looking. The lives of the medical staff and the super villains are all looked in on. Learning about them does provide an interesting take on super villains and how they are looked at. While following these characters it would be nice to see more fighting action. While the characters are interesting that in itself is not really enough to carry the series. Doctors and super villains with a touch of a soap opera thrown in make for a different read.
