About The Book

Animal cruelty is the most pervasive form of torture in the modern world. The heroes who fight it don't wear capes, they wear ski-masks. Whether it's vicious dog-fighting clubs or senseless lab experiments force-feeding oven cleaners to monkeys, Jeanette Francis and Damon Guerrero have had enough. Using any and all means available to them, Jeanette and Damon not only rescue the animals but also avenge them - delivering harsh retribution to the animals' captors and tormentors.

This book collects Liberator issues #1-4 into a single volume for the first time. It also includes 40-pages of brand-new, previously unreleased comics taking place in the Liberator world by a murderer's row of incredibly comic creators including Tim Seeley (Hack/Slash, Revival), Matthew Rosenberg (Punisher), Alex de Campi (Grindhouse), Ales Kot (Iron Patriot, Zero), Ed Brisson (Uncanny X-Men), Frank Barbiere (Five Ghosts), Megan Hutchison (Rockstars), Jonathan Brandon Sawyer (Gwar Orgasmageddon), and more.
"A really cool, progressive story about young outcast crusaders." -Scott Snyder (writer Batman)

Raves and Reviews

"This comic really really doesn't screw around."

– The New York Post

"Liberator is a comic with a purpose, a voice, and a platform. It also happens to be incredibly well written and paced. It's well worth your money, and some of the profits go to an incredible cause."

– Bloody Disgusting

"Unlike any comic book to date, Miner delivers a message about animal abuse with expert knowledge on the matter, while blending it with a gritty protagonist in the vein of Batman."

– Comic Booked

"Liberator helps to bridge the gap between superherodom and ourselves. Damon doesn't do anything that any of us couldn't, a fact which makes his acts all the more extraordinary."

– Earth First Journal

"Debut Of The Year... Unmissable. It has an infectious energy, a bold purpose, and will speak to many... Liberator strikes for the core of the movement and will resonate with a far wider audience than anything more explicit or shocking. This ain't PETA, it's far too considered and powerful for that."

– Comics Beat
