Godless League #1 (The Crimes and Passions of John Stabberger - "Hindenburg II") by John Baltisberger
The Crimes and Passions of John Stabberger
Something is bringing the Third Reich to Texas, the only thing standing in their way is one Jew, and his arm blades. A fucked up marriage of Punisher and Wolverine by way of Mortal Kombat.
In Issue One: Stabberger goes head to head with a Nazi plot to attack the White House led by Hitler fanboy, Charles Lindbergh.
Are you sick of pussy superheroes who have too much backstory and not enough killer instinct? Do you wish comic books would just jump from one brutal kill scene to another more brutal kill scene? Do you think like a nine-year-old who just watched I Spit on Your Grave for the first time?
The Godless League is for you!
Short on story. Long on hyper-violent, mostly misguided, vigilante justice is what Stabberger, Lushbutcher, and Slaughterdozer are all about!
Leave the genuine world-building and plausible origin stories to the mainstream… all we care about is bloodlust and carnage! Fuck them, anyway. They’ve taken enough of your money and given you nothing but disappointment. When was the last time a Marvel hero cut off a Nazi’s cock? Steve Rogers doesn’t got the guts. What kind of hero is that?
Godless League is a new monthly, psychotic, bizarro, short series from the juvenilely sadistic minds of John Baltistberger, Lucy Leitner, and Drew Stepek.
Launching on July 1st!
In this short story, John Baltisberger does what we all dream of: killing a whole lot of Nazis. It's a joy to read because Baltisberger clearly had a lot of fun writing it.
This was the first Godless title I tried. Reading it, I had to ask myself if this thing really was as entertaining as it appeared to be, or was I just basking in the glow of something new and fresh. It's been a few weeks now, and I've torn through a few other godless books, and I can confirm that this entire platform (and this book in particular) are on fucking point. I love the short format, the ultra-violence, the humor, the over-the-top nature of everything, and the general "fuck off, we can do what we want" attitude. It's quickly becoming one of my favorite things, and I can't wait to see what else is in the pipeline.
It's like if Nazi Punks Fuck Off was a book, or if Surf Nazis Must Die was actually a good movie, or if Green Room had less Star Trek and dog psychology and more slaughtering of these sonsabitches....that's Stabberger. My first Godless book, and definitely not my last. A rollicking good time.
A Jewish vigilante "Super Hero" takes on a band of neo Nazis who plan on taking over America. This is the first Salvo in The Godless League series of extreme super hero inspired tales. Think Batman wearing a yarmulke and weilding a knife and your almost there. Add in top of that the goriest caped crusader adventure and turn it up another notch. One can only hope that the Godless League will play out MCU style and we'll get a Godless League Revengers book, too!
Tired of limp dick Marvel movies packed with US military propaganda? This short superhero story is for you. It's got everything; action, knives, piles of dead Nazis, comedy, and more knives. It has all the fun and energy of an alternative black and white comics from the 80's. You won't be disappointed. I'm looking forward to Stabberger Issue II.
