    Dave Gibbon's art has improved a LOT. He brings a lot of explosions and detail to the action scenes, and draws in a LOT of cameos in the big fight in the end. The gruesome laser-pen-knife kill couldn't be as hilarious and gut-wrenching as it is without Gibbons drawing it. Plus, I see he's resolved his facial expression crisis from the last few issues.

    Millar, Matthew Vaughn, and Gibbons created a story that was very clearly written for a completely different medium than for comic books. If anything I would have loved an origin story of how Jack London came to be, well the greatest spy ever. The most clever concept of this series was the newspaper articles being framed. How do you celebrate your accomplishments when no one can know what you accomplished? Even though the finale let me down, the first five issues were excellent and I hope to see more Secret Service from Millar and team in the future. Read Full Review

    The Secret Service is set up to be translated directly into film, and this extremely noticeable in this final issue. Millar created an interesting hero in Gary, but the comic's originality is squashed in favor of an explosive ending that concerns itself more with action than story. This issue doesn't destroy the whole series, but it's definitely deflating. Read Full Review
