Shelfdust Presents: The Fifty Best #1 Issues

Nov 7, 2022

This week it’s time to clear up some of the mess left behind by superheroes, as we look at the comic which came in 42nd place: Damage Control #1 by Dwayne McDuffie, Ernie Colon, Bob Wiacek, John Wellington and Ed King.

Damage Control are a group who tidy up messes and repair the rubble after superheroes and villains have left the scene, and the first issue of the first Damage Control miniseries gives them a unique challenge: a giant robot collapsed in the streets of New York. And, uh… Spider-Man may be trapped inside? The rest of the Avengers may have run off after the next villain, but it’s up to Damage Control to rescue webhead and sort out the mess that’s been left behind. Following the destruction is Al Kennedy, who returns to the show for this week’s episode!
