Everybody loves a good women-in-prison story, from the character-centered drama of something like “Orange is the New Black” to something less cerebral like Caged Heat. It’s no surprise, therefore, that writer Bob Saget, artist Peter Logan, and colorist/letterer Chris Flash have tackled this theme in Above the Law, a hyper-violent, hyper-sexual look at what happens when the passions and furies of women behind bars grow to superhuman size.
Ironically-named convict Megan Small is just trying to survive behind bars, but when she’s accidentally exposed to an experimental military gas she starts to grow, becoming not only hugely powerful but sexually insatiable. But although Megan’s rampage is cathartic, she soon learns that the authorities are not unprepared for a giantess on the loose. After a dramatic battle, the situation is resolved… or is it?
