It's James Bond meets My Fair Lady as the world’s greatest spy trains his troubled nephew to leave his pathetic life behind and join the elite ranks of the British Secret Service. This issue features Jake’s uncle in a must-be-seen-to-be-believed action spectacle as he seeks to uncover the mystery behind actor Mark Hamill’s kidnapping and how it links to a dark secret from inside Mount Everest. At the same time, Jake is undergoing a training program like you’ve never seen before. It’s a dream come true for writer Mark Millar as he teams with Watchmen legend Dave Gibbons for the comic they conceived with Kick-Ass and X-Men First Class more

    So all that waiting just to see Gary go back to his old habits after smack talk from his peers. I am very disappointed with Gary, but not with this issue. This makes things very interesting. Cover art is fitting since Gary is getting smashed on the head with a glass bottle. Kind of symbolic considering he did get smacked in the head with a glass bottle" emotionally of course. The Gaia theory is just another example on how genius Millar and crew are. It's not the first time I heard of the Earth having human traits thanks to Final Fantasy VII. It's safe to say that this series is just another brilliant take on national security and I really can't wait to see the Gaia theory, the kidnappings and the Secret Service have all in common. This issue deserves a solid 9 out of 10. Read Full Review

    A very solid issue. It isn't great, but you won't remotely feel ripped off by it. It'll make a great summer movie one day. Read Full Review
