“The world has always needed heroes.” – Captain Grier has heard this enough times he has a plaque of the saying in his office. He’s been asked to gather another group of heroes, but this time, they need to be the kind of heroes who aren’t susceptible to greed, the media and party politics … they need to be special … more than that, they need to be able to operate covertly when needed … and they need to be autonomous … Enter: The Shadow Faction!

Bankrolled by their very own hero, DUSK, who is also the group’s strategic leader, The Shadow Faction goes after the worst of the worst … villains and criminal organizations that law enforcement can’t touch. Members include super-strong and invulnerable NOBLE, geo-morphing MOUNTAIN, and two Roman demi-gods, SECURITAS and VERITAS.

The scientists of the Collective Solutions Group are out to control the world and they will do so by any means necessary, including creating their own brand of supers … beings with no conscious and plenty of deadly skill … MINDFRAME, The EDGE and BLOODHOUND are just the beginning …

“The world has always needed heroes,” and The SHADOW FACTION answers the call!

Brian Menard

Brian has been many things... a proofreader, an accountant, a singer, a dad, an auditor, a disk jockey, an actor... add to the list comic book writer and editor. Currently taking the reigns on writing Shadow Faction for the Century 25 line of comics at Affinity Press, he is ready to hit the ground running. He is also tasked with putting together a project we plan to call the Affinity Press Registry; a comprehensive listing of the characters in the Affinity Press comic book line-up. He is still a dad, and yes, still an auditor, and plans to help Affinity in some of their back-office operations too, but he’s collected comic books since 1974 and has an appreciation for graphic stories told in sequential art.
