Freedom Fighters #8 is in stores from DC Comics on Wednesday, by the creative team of writer Robert Venditti and artists Eddy Barrows and Carlos Ferreira. Over the next few days, DC Comics will hand an EX-X-XCLUSIVE preview of this and other comics to one of their compliant media partners, part of the secret quid pro quo system that fuels the click economy that drives the 24-hour comics news cycle.
But we’ve got one first. You should have seen how quickly one website posted their “exclusive” Justice League preview, twenty minutes after we did on Friday. Hilarious!
Anyway, left for us at a secret drop point in a hermetically-sealed envelope by a Mysterious Benefactor, these first two pages of Freedom Fighters #8 shows us the joyous birth of Marcus Robbins, the man who would become Black Condor. Unfortunately, that joy doesn’t last long for his parents, as Nazis barge in and seize the baby. Check out the depressing but EX-X-XCLUSIVE preview below.
FREEDOM FIGHTERS #8 (OF 12)
(W) Robert Venditti (A/CA) Eddy Barrows, Carlos Ferreira
The Freedom Fighters have set their sights on an endgame with the fascist regime of Hitler II, but to achieve ultimate victory, one of their own must confront his darkest demons. In the factory city of Detroit, Nazi slave labor camps have made life a living hell-and the one and only person to ever escape, Black Condor, must return home for the very first time to retrieve our heroes’ only hope for victory.
