Good Comic: Middleman

Another comic you should be reading. Turns out the writer of Lost can make good comics.

From the Viper Comics website:
Your reality is a sham. Your way of life is constantly under attack by monsters, aliens and talking primates - and the reason you and the rest of the pink-skinned normal world don’t know it? THE MIDDLEMAN. Working in absurd secrecy, aided by talented amateur Wendy Watson, the Middleman stares down threats extra- infra- and juxta-terrestrial with a big gun and a have-a-nice-day grin. The Middleman: he fights evil, so you don't have to!

Issue 01 (of 04)
Written by Javier Grillo-Marxuach
Illustrated by Les McClaine
Cover colored by Dean Trippe

The Temporary Employment Sanction
Wendy Watson thought she had it tough as a struggling young artist working a string of meaningless McJobs... until she met The Middleman. Now her life is filled with monsters, mindless destruction and one life-altering choice: to join or not to join the never-ending battle for truth, justice, and the other thing!
