Media Release — Ben Parker is famous for two things: the most memorable quote in all of comic history… and dying. While his nephew Peter may have taken his words to heart, Marcus Greenberg has a different take on the famous Parker mantra: “With Great Power Comes Great Profitability.”
As The Consultant, Marcus makes his living hiding the super-sins of the world’s super-“heroes”. Have you unintentionally beat a suspect to death? Call The Consultant. Did your latest underage teen sidekick just get murdered? Call The Consultant. If you have a problem that can’t be bought, if no one will help you bury the body, if you can afford him, then maybe you can hire THE CONSULTANT.
Inspired by writer/creator Jason Sterr’s military service, THE CONSULTANT delivers the best of both worlds, in regards to comic genres. Fans of traditional superhero stories will love how Jason illuminates the lucrative fallout of super-powered hissy fits in the middle of New York, rather than the temper tantrum itself. For those of you that avoid capes and cowls like the plague, THE CONSULTANT puts their hypocrisy on the center stage and broadcasts them for the world to see.
THE CONSULTANT VOLUME 1, which collects the first four issues of the series, will be available in a comic book store near you on April 4th, 2018. Preorder the first volume with the Diamond item code FEB180988.
