    Default Kieron Gillen's Uber From Avatar - Some Very Nazi Superheroes

    We've already talked about Kieron Gillen's Heat, a planned six-issue sci-fi mini-series for Avatar, about the policing of Mercury, that has yet to see print. But I also heard Kieron talk about what he referred to as Avatar Project Two.

    Well this appears to be that, getting out of the gates first.

    Drawn by Canaan White, Uber is a new monthly title from Avatar set in Germany, 1945, as the Nazis prepare to release their last ditch attempt at saving themselves from certain defeat.

    Superheroes.

    And they are about to rewrite history.

    The first "zero" issue of Uber is out in April, a 48 page comic for $3.99

    It's ber. With an .

    And great - another comic book were Diamond will cream their pants and not ship it to Germany because it could lead to problems with customs (well as long as they don't ship it to Bavaria there should be no problems).

    Great, another comic that shows Germans as nothing but Nazi-monsters! It's so nice to see that more than 60 years after the end of WWII that still seems to be the only thing comic writers can come up with.
    For once I would like to see Germany or Germans portrayed positively in a comicbook, perhaps even in present time instead of WWII, not just used as a convenient source for murdering megalomaniacs and genocidal WWII super-villains.

    I think a lot of people in comics have a sort of fetish for the Nazi uniforms.

    Speaking of Mercury, I almost forgot about Anna Mercury. How could I do that? How's that coming along Warren, William, Mark, Facundo, etc?

    "Blitzkrieg Cover Edition". Stay classy, guys. Not a swastika in sight on any of the covers, guess that's how they're hoping to get it into Germany.

    Where's the Sexy Nude Nazi variant, by the way?
