In September Dark Horse Comics debuted Buzzkill #1, co-written by Donny Cates and Mark Reznicek, illustrated by Geoff Shaw and colored by Lauren Affe. At a glance the cover for the first issue appears to present a somber, but otherwise with-it costumed superhero enjoying a cigarette and a bottle of wine as he leans over the ledge of a skyscraper surveying his city. But then there's the title, "Buzzkill," and an environment not dotted with highrises, but rather filled with enormous bottles of hooch. This hero has a problem. Turns out that not only is the protagonist -- who may or may not be named Ruben -- an alcoholic, but a retired crime fighter who depended on abusing substances to put his powers to use... not that he can tell the civilians in his new support group. Meanwhile, his former supervillain foes conspire in the shadows, plotting revenge for a catastrophic battle he can't even remember. ComicsAlliance got in touch with Cates to learn more about the new miniseries and what's in store for Buzzkill's less-than-heroic hero.
