League of Volunteers is an award-winning comic chronicling the adventures of a team of superheroes operating in Ireland during World War 2, known in Ireland as “The Emergency” (because we Irish like three things; alcohol, not being English and understatement.) The team, which includes veterans of the Spanish civil war (from both sides), a half-demon vampire huntress, an ancient and powerful druid and the mythical Irish hero Fionn Mac Cumhail battle to save Ireland from both Nazi agents and the most powerful and dangerous creatures of Irish legend.
It is freakin’ awesome.
Creator Rob Curley has very kindly given me the oppurtunity to write a three issue arc for the series and the first issue just hit the stands last week. If you’re based in Dublin you can pick up a copy in Sub City comics just off Exchequer Street for just under five euro (and if you would, that would be the final, clinching proof I need that you are as awesome as I’ve always suspected.)
Of course, I know most of you are not in Dublin so the above information is of little to no use to you.
But worry not, the comic is also available to buy online at the Atomic Diner Comics website.
In the meantime, I’ll leave you with this absolutely phenomenal artwork by Stephen Byrne featuring Blood Rose and Glimmerman asking some vampires if they’ve been to Bahia.
