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. But this commentary also gives it an original and mostly unseen view on the political side of vigilantism.

I think A.M. Thorn captures the feeling of vulnerability and fear well in his serial. Characters are well rounded and have an array of emotions and motives, giving them a sense of depth.

One problem with VMUS is the grammatical errors, a few missing words can be found in each chapter, which doesn’t greatly hinder the reading experience, but it is something that requires attention from the author.

I enjoy how Thorn has his multiple serials intertwined yet separated from each other. It’s not necessary to read every story going on in his universe, but you’ll miss the constant nods and references, which brings a sense of satisfaction to the reader.

Serenity slowly unveils the curtain on Jia’s family legacy well, enticing the reader to move forward with ‘just one more chapter’.

I believe A.M. Thorn has a serial worth checking out, and although some parts weren’t for me, I found myself enjoying the read. And with a wide variety of stories to choose from, I think you’ll find something to enjoy as well.
