More typically OTT stuff from Mark Millar, it’s an acquired taste I know, but I’ve definitely acquired it and therefore I really enjoyed this issue. This time out is basically the gathering of the heroes, as Johnny Bolt picks his team to head over to Europe for the heist, and yes, the Ocean’s 11 comparisons are stronger than ever. I felt that Millar did a good job of establishing who each character was in only a few pages, and also how he subtly got across the back-story of this world and how hard it is to be a superhero. There was also the typical blood-thirsty Millar violence and a hefty dose of shocking sex stuff, with the revelation that Gladiator, the superhero from #1 is a closeted homo-sexual that Johnny Bolt is blackmailing into helping with the Heist. Leinil Yu’s art was excellent as always, he really is a top-level talent. I’m interested to see where this is going, we’re already halfway through and we haven’t gotten to the heist yet, and there are so many characters here. I’m particularly interested in the Praetorian, he’s like an anti-hero Wolverinesque character gone too far. I’m also excited to see how ‘The Bastard’ lives up to his name.
