''All-Star Section Eight'' is a comic series created by Creator/GarthEnnis and John [=McCrea=], and published by Creator/DCComics. Part of the "DC You" initiative, it is a SpinOff of Ennis and [=McCrea=]'s ''ComicBook/{{Hitman}}''.

Based in the Cauldron, Gotham City's Irish district, Section Eight are a bunch of questionably heroic superheroes who occasionally provided aid to hitman Tommy Monaghan back in the day, but have since gone their separate ways. But now former leader Sixpack has experienced a premonition. Something bad is coming, and only he and his team can stop it. And thus he sets out on a quest to rebuild Section Eight.
