Griffin Franks was a joke in Hollywood. A washed up action-hero. Over the hill. Past it. A has-been. A barely-was. But now he IS The Revenger. He’s a star. His movie’s a hit. His newest wife is hot. He finally has everything he wants. The perfect time for someone to take it all away. Forever. Starting with his face.
Jonathan Ross is not only a national celebrity and TV presenter but a lifelong comics enthusiast – who is building a new following of comic fans with his critically acclaimed work on Turf and America’s Got Powers!
Ian Churchill has worked professionally in the comic book industry for 20 years.
