Black Summer is a comic book mini-series written by Warren Ellis, illustrated by Juan Jose Ryp, and published by Avatar Press starting in June, 2007.
The plot revolves around the consequences of a superhero, John Horus, who kills the President of the United States and several of his advisers. This occurs in issue #0 (which, unusually for Avatar, is not a preview, but an introduction to the series, half the length of a normal issue). The seven issue series which follows details the aftermath of the assassination.
The Seven Guns are "an association of politically-aware young scientist-inventors" (according to creator Warren Ellis), who create their own superhuman enhancements through extreme body modification experiments supervised by Tom Noir and Frank Blacksmith. Noir is the brains of the team, but by far the most powerful member is John Horus, whose enhancements make him, for all intents and purposes, invincible. Their first public mission was to free an unspecified West Coast city from a corrupt police force and the criminal city government which backed it.
