All-Star Section Eight is a comic series created by Garth Ennis and John McCrea, and published by DC Comics. Part of the "DC You" initiative, it is a Spin-Off of Ennis and McCrea's 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.


This series contains examples of:

  • The Alcoholic: As his name implies, Sixpack drinks a lot.
  • Exactly What It Says on the Tin: Dogwelder is a guy who spot-welds dogs to criminals.
  • Meaningful Name: The team name "Section 8" comes from the military designation for those considered unfit for military service.
  • Putting the Band Back Together: The series opens with Sixpack attempting to get Section Eight back together.
  • Ragtag Bunch of Misfits: The team includes a severe alcoholic, a walking mass of internal organs, and a guy who spot-welds dogs to people. Calling them misfits might be an understatement.
