PRODIGY. #5

Written by Mark Millar Drawn by Rafael Albuquerque Published by Image Comics PREVIOUSLY: PRODIGY. #4 As I’ve noted in my last two reviews, the biggest flaw I find in this series that Edison is written as so much smarter than everyone else that it removes all of the suspense from the stories. Mark Millar corrects…

PRODIGY. #4

Written by Mark Millar Drawn by Rafael Albuquerque Published by Image Comics PREVIOUSLY: PRODIGY. #3 This issue is even more action-heavy than the last. We see Edison fighting groups of armed men, jumping out of windows, jumping out of a plan, dismantling a missile in mid-air and just generally being a badass. We also get…

PRODIGY. #3

Written by Mark Millar Drawn by Rafael Albuquerque Published by Image Comics PREVIOUSLY: PRODIGY. #2 Mark Millar starts off this issue right in the middle of a gunfight on top of a moving train, and the action just picks up from there barely giving the reading time to breath. This is a globe-trotting adventure as…

PRODIGY. #2

Written by Mark Millar Drawn by Rafael Albuquerque Published by Image Comics PREVIOUSLY: PRODIGY. #1 Now joined by rogue CIA agent Rachel Staks, Edison Crane heads to Moscow where must break into a super-secret vault inside of The Kremlin to find an ancient scroll which pertains to the invasion that is underway from a parallel…

PRODIGY. #1

Written by Mark Millar Drawn by Rafael Albuquerque Published by Image Comics I haven’t picked up a Mark Millar comic since I bought the first issue of his series EMPRESS back in 2016, but I was definitely intrigued when I first heard about this new series of his. Edison Crane is the World’s Smartest Man,…

HUCK #6

Written by Mark Millar Drawn by Rafael Albuquerque Published by Image Comics PREVIOUSLY: HUCK #5 I have to say that this has been one of Mark Millar’s most enjoyable recent projects. With some inventive use of Anna’s powers, Huck busts the two of them out of the Siberian prison, and then mother and son team…

Empress #1

Written by Mark Millar Drawn by Stuart Immonen Publish by Icon/Marvel Comics Mark Millar returns to Marvel Comics for this new series, published under their creator-owned Icon Imprint. I must say that I had high hopes for this title up initially hearing about it. First, because of his collaborator and co-creator Stuart Immonen, whose work…

Huck #5

Written by Mark Millar Drawn by Rafael Albuquerque Published by Image Comics PREVIOUSLY: HUCK #4 Okay, first of all, though I will try to avoid too much spoiling of this issue, do not ready any further unless you’ve read the first four issues first. Seriously, just stop. You have been warned. Okay, so the big…

Huck #4

Written by Mark Millar Drawn by Rafael Albuquerque Published by Image Comics PREVIOUSLY: HUCK #3 So here it is, The Secret Origin of Huck. Through flashbacks, as told by his newly discovered twin brother Tom, we see how he and Huck’s mother was part of Russia’s experimental superhuman program back in the late 70’s, and…

MPH #5

Writer: Mark Millar Artist: Duncan Fegredo Publisher: Image Comics Previously: MPH #4 After reviewing HUCK #2, which made reference to a character alluded to in this series, I realize that even though I’d published reviews of the first 4 issue of MPH, I never did get around to reviewing this final 5th issues. Truthfully, it’s…

Huck #3

Written by Mark Millar Drawn by Rafael Albuquerque Published by Image Comics PREVIOUSLY: HUCK #2 Taking place not too long after the events of the previous issue, we see Huck completing the remaining tasks he was asked to do. First, in the gritty urban streets of New Jersey he travels to crack house to find…

Huck #2

Written by Mark Millar Drawn by Rafael Albuquerque Published by Image Comics PREVIOUSLY: HUCK #1 This issue begins with a flashback to 1981 in Siberia, where wee see the appearance of a Russian woman with apparent telepathic powers. For longtime Mark Millar fans you may remember that the existence of such a woman was alluded…

Huck #1

Written by Mark Millar Drawn by Rafael Albuquerque Published by Image Comics Here we have the latest creator-owned release from writer Mark Millar. Although I have been a fan of much (although not all) of Mark Millar’s work, this is a comic-book that I originally didn’t intend to buy. The reason being that, well, the…

Jupiter’s Legacy #5

Written by Mark Millar Drawn by Frank Quitely Published by Image Comics Previously: Jupiter’s Legacy #4 It’s been a loooooong time since the previous issue. Is it worth the wait? Well, I’ll finish this after I read it, and we’ll see. Okay, read it. As per last issue, Hutch and Chloe are hiding out in…

MPH #4

Writer: Mark Millar Artist: Duncan Fegredo Publisher: Image Comics Previously: MPH #3 Okay, I’ve begun writing this post before I’ve read the issue. It’s early in the morning, I’m still waiting for Comixology to go live so I can buy the new comics. I generally try to avoid revealing major spoilers in each issue, so…

MPH #3

Writer: Mark Millar Artist: Duncan Fegredo Publisher: Image Comics Previously: MPH #2 Yes, it’s been almost 3 months since the previous issue of this series. I could make some kind of joke about the irony of a book about super-speed coming out so slowly, and how it’s too bad that artist Duncan Fegredo doesn’t have…

SUPERCROOKS by Mark Millar and Leinil Yu

Written by Mark Millar (co-plotted by Nacho Vigalondo) Drawn by Leinil Yu Inked by Gerry Alanguilan Colored by Sunny Gho Published by Marvel Comics/Icon Imprint While I may not have been impressed with NEMESIS, I still decided to check out Mark Millar’s other fairly recent creator-owned series that I originally missed, Supercrooks. And I am…

MILLAR & MCNIVEN’S NEMESIS

Written by Mark Millar Art by Steve McNiven Published by Marvel Comics/Icon After having given up on Mark Millar after his miniseries SUPERIOR, which I found underwhelming, I’ve been pleasantly surprised by his latest creator-owned titles, Starlight, Jupiter’s Legacy, and MPH. I also read his Marvel 1985 miniseries earlier this year, and liked that too.…

MPH #2

Writer: Mark Millar Artist: Duncan Fegredo Publisher: Image Comics Previously: MPH #1 This issue opens with showing us Rosa at home. She lives in an apartment with her Aunt and her little brother whom she calls “Baseball”, who is getting mixed up with a local gang. She had an older brother who was killed sometime…

A daring escape is led by…

STARLIGHT #3

Writer: Mark Millar Artist: Goran Parlov Publisher: Image Comics Previously: STARLIGHT #2 We’re on Tantalus, where we get a glimpse of the new dictator, The Kingfisher, and see him brutally murder a former member of the Royal Guard as a warning to the rest of the planet to obey him. Duke and Krish (whom Duke…

STARLIGHT #2

Writer: Mark Millar Artist: Goran Parlov Publisher: Image Comics Previously: STARLIGHT #1 We pick up right from the previous cliffhanger. Duke is startled to see the familiar spaceship landing in his front yard, and then out steps a young boy with purple hair who introduces himself. He says his name is Krish and he is…
