The Losers was a comic published by the Vertigo imprint of DC Comics, written by Andy Diggle and drawn by Jock.
Based on an obscure old DC Comic (Our Fighting Forces) following a team of soldiers in WWII, this new series brings the concept up to date with a present day setting and a team of special forces soldiers who declare war on the CIA after their Agency handler tries to assassinate them.
It has been noted that the update bears more than a passing resemblance to the A-Team.
Upon America\'s entry into the European theatre of the Second World War, a Special Forces group composed of personnel from all branches of the armed forces was formed. The members were Captain William Storm, a former PT Boat commander with a wooden leg and an eye-patch; Johnny Cloud of the U.S. Army Air Force, known as \"The Navajo Ace\"; Sarge Clay, one of the oldest serving Marines, and Gunner Mackey, one of the youngest. Because each member had suffered the deaths of personnel under their command for which they felt responsible, they dubbed themselves The Losers.
