The Losers is a Vertigo comic book series by Andy Diggle (writer) and Jock (artist). In 2010 it was made into a film, directed by Sylvain White. The film features an ensemble cast that includes Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Zoe Saldana, Chris Evans, Idris Elba, Óscar Jaenada, and Columbus Short.


The fandom is small and was most active during 2010/2011, after the film's release. It is largely Dreamwidth/LiveJournal based. There are stories based on the comics as well as the film, and some that merge canon from both; all tend to be welcome in the various comms. Most stories ignore or fix the ending of the comics.

There is a fanfiction exchange called Ante Up Losers held on Dreamwidth.


The most popular pairing by far is Cougar/Jensen. The runner up slash pairing is Clay/Roque. The main het pairings are the canon ones of Aisha/Clay and Pooch/Jolene, although they are often only secondary pairings in stories that are mainly gen or slash.


As the fandom is fairly small no particular tropes really dominate.
