The world's greatest secret agent has six months to live. Does he die quietly in a hospital bed, or does he make up for a lifetime of bad decisions? He's been propping up an unfair system for over forty years. Now he knows where all the bodies are buried and has nothing to lose when he turns his guns on everyone who ever made a buck creating the mess we're in right now.
REGISTER PITCH: An action/adventure story that's part spy thriller, part revenge rampage-James Bond meets John Wick.

    COMICON - Olly MacNamee Nov 4, 2021

    King of Spies #1 is the story of a James Bond inspired character, if he were allowed to grow old and retire. But, it is so much more than this as Mark Millar and Matteo Scalera gives us a man who begins to question his past and the actions he took out of duty to Queen and country. A man who does more than question his role in Britain's place in the world, and how it got there. And a man willing to do something about it too. A brilliant addition to the spy-thriller genre, but with a somewhat left-leaning take on it as our hero, Roland King, really has no time to die. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Nov 15, 2021

    Timing is everything in comedy and at times, comic books, With the public psyche all geared to the end (?) of a super spy, Millar has delivered an alternative viewpoint and raison d'etre. A fabulous read with a character you will hate to love! Read Full Review
