But when he finally reaches his destination he’ll be met with a formidable foe, the Don Of The Dead!

Fans and critics agree – Taskmaster is a hit!

“I’m excited for where this miniseries is going. Four out of five stars. Check it out.” – George C.,

“…Van Lente and Palo are doing a good job giving us a rip-roaring tale of one man’s search (literally) for himself.” – Doug Zawisza,
