I read 'Danger Club, Vol. 1: Death' by Landry Q. Walker after reading the second volume. I liked the second volume more than this one.

The heroes have all gone somewhere, and only the young sidekicks are left behind. I was confused by this in the second volume and it's not explained here either. The things I liked in the second volume begin to form here, but the story just didn't really hook me. It seems to want to be hyperviolent, and it doesn't seem to know what to do with it yet. That works better in the second volume where the violence is done with more shock.

I gave the second volume four stars because the story gets a bit deeper. This time around, I have to give it less because the story comes across as cliche. Maybe I've read too many deconstructions of superhero stories, or maybe I've just read better ones.

I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Diamond Book Distributors, Image Comics, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
