Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I waited years to read this story and Millar did not disappoint.  Once again, Mark proves he has one of the most original voices in comics, not to mention a particularly distinct grasp of the comic book super-hero.  And good God, is it gorgeous to look at too."—Kevin Smith

"Millar takes a massive gamble here with one of the world's most enduring icons."—The London Sunday Times

I bought this for my boyfriend for an anniversary gift. He literally screamed when he unwrapped it, and didn't waste any time reading it. I've never seen a grown man glow like a little kid on Christmas morning. Definitely a good buy!
