Vigilantes Make Us Safe by A.M. Thorn

 

When the world was on the brink in the 1940s a group of strange men and women with uncommon ability stepped up and helped pull the world back. They inspired generations to come and led to a golden age of vigilantes protecting the world.

Times change though. The world got more complicated and by the early 2000s almost nowhere on earth was willing to tolerate unregulated men and women dispensing their own form of justice. The dawn of the internet made operating in the shadows virtually impossible.

Everyone thought the day of vigilantes was done but presidential candidate Richard Hughes, riding a wave of populism, has promised to bring these men and women back into the light and empower them to keep us all safe. The passing of the Vigilantes Making Us Safe Act could change everything.

A variety of titles including Hitbox, Serenity, Rebel Rebel, Dynamo, and more to come, will come together to show many sides of our larger world. They will show how vigilantes can make us safe.

Note: Vigilantes Make Us Safe contains some harsh language.

Nov 2, 2018: I will be referring to Vigilantes Make Us Safe as VMUS for short.

Serenity takes place in an anarchistic society where anyone may brandish their own form of justice.

Vigilantes Make Us Safe relies heavily on social and political insights, and does not shy away from talking about sensitive topics, which can be a strength and a weakness at times. Because of its braveness on tackling modern-day issues, VMUS’s reader base narrows. [more . . .]

Daring but Didactic

By Rhodeworks, author of Not All Heroes

Jan 30, 2019: Vigilantes Make Us Safe (henceforth VMUS) is an intriguing, ambitious idea. Essentially, it is a collection of serials where each one follows a specific character in a wider world where the American government has legalized vigilante justice. In short, I feel the idea, while shaky, is more let down by the execution than the core concepts.

This review covers Hitbox, Rebel Rebel, Dynamo, Serenity and Toxic, as well as the first few chapters of The Law. I have attempted to condense [more . . .]

Enjoyable Despite the Shaky Premise

By Megajoule, author of The Warlock Ruthless

Jan 28, 2019: Note: sort of part of a review swap, though I’ve moved away from doing them and wanted to review VMUS anyway. I always endeavor to be honest.

Vigilantes Make Us Safe (or VMUS) is worth checking out. That’s my thesis statement for this review, so you know how I feel about it right off the bat. The work oscillated between "fairly solid" and "solid" but ended up at fairly solid for me. There were certain works that were more intriguing or [more . . .]
