Art Ops Vol. 2: Popism
Once a garden-variety rebel without a clue, Reggie Riot found a new lust for life after losing his arm in a severe art attack. Now, with living paint serving as his prosthetic, he’s turning visions into reality as the new leader of a top-secret organization known as the Art Operatives.
This specialized crew of culture warriors has sworn to protect the world’s masterpieces by any means necessary—including pulling them straight through the fourth wall and into full-blooded life.
Reggie and his motley band, however, are only the tattered remains of a much larger force—one led by his high-achieving mother, who disappeared into thin air along with nearly all of her colleagues some months ago.
Enter Danny Doll, Reggie’s long-lost dad and the former head of Art Ops. Doll was the enfant terrible of New York’s Pop Art/Op Art scene—until an unspeakable incident sent him down a darker and more dangerous path. Now Doll has returned, ready to reconnect with his son. But is he moving back towards the light—or preparing to plunge the world into a permanent midnight?
The acclaimed VERTIGO series from writer Shaun Simon and artists Michael Allred, Matt Brundage, Eduardo Risso and Rob Davis comes to its shattering conclusion in ART OPS VOL. 2: POPISM, collecting issues #7-12 and featuring a special sketchbook section from Brundage.
