THE ORDER #2 (JUN072181)
Written by MATT FRACTION

Pencils and Cover by BARRY KITSON

Rated T+…$2.99

FOC-8/02/07, On Sale-8/22/07

Everything was going smoothly for the television debut of California's super team, The Order, until a group of Soviet super-weapons showed up looking for blood! The Order #2 jumps right into the fray with rising writer Matt Fraction (Immortal Iron Fist and Punisher War Journal) and talented artist Barry Kitson at the reigns of this spin-off from the red-hot Initiative storyline!

Although The Order extinguished the Infernal Man and prevented a raging fire from blazing through the San Gabriel Mountains to the heart of Los Angeles…is this new team ready to take on a whole squad of seasoned super villains?

Plus, what would a Los Angeles-based super team be without some good, old-fashioned Hollywood scandal; a PR queen starts her spin on the Golden State heroes, a mysterious dead body shows up, and of course, a superhero sex tape! (Take that, Hollywood!) If you're looking for some classic Marvel action with a Hollywood-style twist, then look no further than The Order #2!
