Supercrooks #4 (Wicked little bitch Spoilers)

Millar and Yu’s latest project comes to an end with a double-sized issue that really does deliver. We see the heist on The Bastard in it’s entirety, and the whole thing is very enjoyable, with some fantastic moments and twists. I particularly liked the very disgusting scene where those two brothers with healing factors repeatedly getting cut up in order to get through the lasers. That was the purest moment of Millar getting back to his awesome high concept of ‘Oceans 11 but with superpowers’ and it was great. Another great scene was Gladiator standing away from the fight with the Praetorian until the last minute and then fucking destroying him. Now that’s a gay character! I must admit that I was surprised that they got away with the crime, I was fully expecting one final twist and for the Bastard to kill them all, but for once it was a happy ending. This was a fun mini-series, not quite as good as Superior, but Millar and Yu make for a great team, I enjoyed myself and the art was great. Here’s hoping the upcoming movie is good too. Also of note, was that this issue featured preview art for Millar and Quitely’s upcoming Jupiter’s Children, which looks amazing.

Going to sound like Scrooge McDuck yet again, but what constitutes "double sized" these days? I read every issue up until this one, and then passed because it jumped from $2.99 to $4.99 for the finale. It didn't exactly feel like there were $2.00 worth of more pages in there. Page count, anyone?
