Human Target – Peter Milligan

Human TargetThis 4 issue miniseries, based on a DC character from the 1970’s is superb. There is a quality of writing and subject matter that blows most modern offerings out of the water.

Firstly there is an incredible twist that really leaves you baffled and then you have an examination on the themes of identity and the sense of self that is more at home in an Ibsen play than the funny books.

The art is great. Even though the backgrounds are blank or sparsely detailed you don’t notice or care and it seems to project the characters right off the page. There is excellent colouring with strong mood and tone even with the Vertigo newsprint paper.

Terrific in both style and substance.

Double Thumbs Up!!
