The greatest crime-fighter of the 40′s returns in a third thrilling collection of original, action-packed tales of adventure, intrigue, and revenge. Life was bliss for millionaire adventurer Richard Henry Benson until that fateful day crime and greed took away his wife and young daughter… and turned him into something more than human. Driven by loss, compelled by grief, he becomes a chilled impersonal force of justice, more machine than man, dedicated to the destruction of evildoers everywhere. A figure of ice and steel, more pitiless than both, Benson has been forged into an avatar of vengeance, possessed of superhuman genius supernormal power. His frozen face and pale eyes, like a polar dawn, only hint at the terrible force the underworld heedlessly invoked upon itself the day they created… The Avenger!
Exclusive HC BONUS material: An Avenger timeline by Rick Lai, a story by John Small, plus solo tales of the Avenger’s aides by Howard Hopkins!

ABOUT LONE JUSTICE:
A cryptic phone call from James Masters, a former client brings Richard Benson to a small mountain community. He goes alone, much to the concern of his team. Without his comrades of Justice, Inc. with him, The Avenger meets with a terrified Masters. He claims to have seen Roscoe Colson, the man he’s set to testify against, in town. Colson and his goons are on the hunt with Richard Benson and James Masters as their prey. The one thing they didn’t realize is that The Avenger is no one’s prey. The hunters are about to become the hunted.
