Come for the zombie seals, stay for the Greenpeace. Worth every dime.
The stories here stand well enough alone but there are spoilers for earlier trades. Best to start with volume 1.
Local Heroes is comprised of two multi-part stories. First up is the four issue titular one, with Tommy being targeted for recruitment by a mysterious government agency and featuring a well known DC superhero. As usual with Hitman the core characters are the highlight, and the plot is decent too. Kyle is portrayed way too stupid here, but I have to admit the jokes at his expense are pretty funny.
The remainder of the trade is the two issue Zombie Night at the Gotham Aquarium. This is exactly what it sounds like and really didn't need a second issue. Not actively bad, but not my thing.
So a mixed bag here for me but still a decent entry in the series overall, mostly due to Tommy being such a compelling character and ongoing intriguing plot threads.
