This is basically Mark Millar’s James Bond fanfic isn’t it? It is, but it’s still an enjoyable comic. This issue ticks all of the Millar boxes, bloody violence, pop culture references, over the top dialogue, social commentary and more bloody violence. I really like the way Millar is juxtaposing the drab and dreary real world of Gary’s life on a council estate, with the crazy super-spy stuff his Uncle does. I also liked how Gary’s spy training won’t be the usual stuff you see in other stories, the idea of subtle persuasion being important and therefore begging money being his first task was a very clever one. The villain is yet to really take shape yet, but there’s still 5 more issues, this story has barely begun. Dave Gibbons art was brilliant as you’d expect, the man is a master craftsman.
