Imagine finding out everything you thought you knew about your life was false. In actual fact your absent father was a super-villain and the greatest assassin on the planet, code named the Killer.
This is what faces Wesley Gibson in Mark Millar's Wanted. Gibson embraces his new found life-style after his father is killed and he stands to inherit millions of dollars. Taking on the persona of the Killer, Gibson joins the vast underground super-villain network and soon finds himself in the middle of a conspiracy.
This graphic novel is a fun read, Millar is obviously letting his hair down and telling a story that the mainstream publishing houses wouldn't have produced. The story is violent, sexy, full of swear words and flies along at a million miles. Well worth getting hold of a copy.
There is also a movie about to be released starring Angelina Jolie, James McAvoy and Morgan Freeman. Millar has said he thinks the film will be good, even though it bears little resemblance to his original story. I for one am looking forward to seeing it.
