Drink and live . . . or stay sober and die! Buzzkill is a superhero who derives his powers from imbibing MASSIVE amounts of alcohol. After all the disasters his addiction has caused with his girlfriend and his fellow superheroes - not to mention the havoc it's wreaked on the city - he's ready to get clean. When he joins a twelve-step recovery program, the city's supervillains couldn't be happier! Alternately tragic and hilarious, Buzzkill is a pitch-perfect superhero parable that's also a poignant look at addiction, from Donny Cates, Mark Reznicek, and breakout artist Geoff Shaw.

Great concept for a superhero and a cool story to go with it. This sits neatly alongside the anti-superhero comics from the likes of Mark Waid and Garth Ennis.
