THE LOSERS VERTIGO MASTER LIST & DOWNLOAD.
- Vertigo Comics. Written by Andy Diggle. Illustrated by Jock. 2003- 2006
This entire series is a 11/10. 6 stars. All that shit.
I came for the art, stayed for the kick ass story line.
The comics are a little tricky to come by because they’re older, especially that fucking volume 5, so here’s my collection. I’d recommend reading the files with CDisplayEx.
2010 Special Edition
So, I read one of my new books last night. I snagged the combined volume 1&2 of The Losers from Vertigo Comics and devoured that sucker last night. Here is my rambling thoughts on this book.
Violent, an intriguing plot, a damn fine art style(very noir and very fun). We get a cast that is diverse in terms of race, religion, class, and country of origin. One of the main characters is a female character by the name of Aisha who takes no shit, who possesses a tender side, but is also possessing of a ruthless edge that rivals-or supersedes- that of her male counterparts. (Give me all the Aisha. ALL THE AISHA).
There are elements we could critique, but I felt that in the end there were many positive elements in the books. I was pleased by the end. Also, if you are looking for an art style that doesn’t seem to overly sexuality the female form, I felt that this didn’t do so. Her clothing struck me as being functional, poses often were more dominance stances like you would see from a main male character, and there were only a few gray area shots that came to mind.
The thing about Chris Evans is he’s such a versatile actor, so good at playing so many types of characters… And he’s been in so many different styles of movies, and you just sit there and go ‘wow’ when you think of one character, but then think of another and go ‘wow’, and it’s like…They are all so equally great and how could one possibly be better than another? They can’t.
Except Jensen. Jensen is in a category all to himself and is absolute perfection that cannot be topped.
today was the first time I ever watched ‘The Losers’ and dear god I was missing out!
We find it, we paint it for a laser-targeted bomb, we get the hell out.

OKay OKAY guys, do you want a comic with government conspiracy, a crazy team of rejects and plots that will make you laugh, cry and have feels all over the place?
This is an amazing book. (and movie with Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Chris Evans, Idris Elba, Zoe Saldana, Óscar Jaenada, and Columbus Short). Its about a band of soldiers that get set up by their government (and so much more than that)
(also the best surprise twin! plot twist ever)
The Losers #13
Carlos ‘Cougar’ Alvarez - The Losers (2010)
the unbelievable conceit of the Losers that they would try to convince you for MONTHS that the hero was Clay, the white exceptionalist badass jerk, the Vertigo Comics staple, and then in the final issues kill him off so unceremoniously and hilariously that you had to re-examine everything that came before and realize that this story was really about Aisha and Carlos Alvarez, hating America and crying for the children
I think it’s time for a rewatch of this one.
