Meet the Author

I was born in Coventry U.K and moved to Weston-super-Mare when I was a small child. I live with my husband and 3 children. I have 2 step daughters, 3 grandchildren and another on the way.Reading was a chore when I was younger, but now I am often curled up with a good paranormal book until the early hours of the morning. I drive my husband nuts when I climb into bed and talk about the book I have been reading, and now, the story lines and the characters that I am creating. He deserves a gold medal for putting up with me.Thank you for taking the time to read this.. Kirstie

    Are all Graphic Novels better than the movies based off of them?

    Have you seen the movies 'Wanted' or Office Space or Fight Club? Have you never fired a gun? Do you think your life could be better or maybe wonder what exactly hasn't happened yet? Do you like graphic novels? If you answered 'yes' to any of these questions the 'Wanted' is the book for you! In less than an hour (or so), you'll feel amazed at the fact you feel incredibly better and ready to take on the world! (I stole part of this from a self-help book review)

    Don't read it because 'the movie was awesome'

    The comic is absolutely nothing like the book, and I was disappointed to see the movie only used the first issue of material, with everything else made up. The book centers around a group of supervillians who managed to kill every superhero on Earth back in a war during the 80s. The characters can basically kill and rape anyone they feel like, and the plot involves a civil war conspiracy amongst the factions of the supervillians. And while the illustration was fantastic, and many moments made me think 'Well that was pretty B.A.' (such as the Superman's cape reference), the entire novel felt like an angry kid just fitting in as many cuss words and cynically sadistic moments as he could. There really wasn't much substance to it, and the absolutely oversaturated amount of cynicism was so distracting it detracted from the positives of the novel. After a few days, it grew on me, having gone back to read it again, and I now that I can keep in mind all the distractions, it has become more enjoyable. But the shock-value Millar tries to use to be controversial falls flat, and he just comes off as an angry, juvenille writer who just puts in as much mean material as he can because, well, he can. I would reccommend far more highly his comic book series 'Kick-Ass', which is a more clever premise, and lacks the sadism in Wanted, so the clever plot and characters are more fleshed out.

    Entertaining, but not great

    I first found out about this comic after seeing the Super Bowl commercial for the film version. Having found out some extremely interesting plot details, I was dying to read it so I got a copy. As a comic book fan, it was well worth reading and I enjoyed it. However it clearly fell short of my high expectations for it. It could have aspired to Watchmen-esque greatness, but inadequate and sloppy execution of the plot bring it down. At certain points in the story, you find yourself thinking of ways it could have been improved. The twist at the end is not much of a twist and could've been left out. There are glaring inconsistencies. First Wesley's set to inherit $50M, then it's $10M at the end. It's a head-scratcher when his father is shown to have the ability to pass through walls. If the Professor is indeed a 9th level intellect, why didn't he create a personal force field device as he's invented just about everything else. As for Wesley's ill-defined powers, at first it seems his powers are fit to be that of no more than an assassin or bodyguard, but then he's shown to be the most powerful being in that universe who can wipe out a dozen or so supervillains surrounding him practically by himself. The protagonist in Rising Stars was also the most powerful being in his universe but only in terms of one-on-one combat. Wesley's feats defy a suspension of belief, even for a longtime comics reader. In the end you are left unsatisfied and somewhat puzzled, despite its overall high entertainment value. You just feel it could have been better.

    Seriously one of the all time best graphic novels. There are so

    Seriously one of the all time best graphic novels. There are some great scenes in the book where it shows dozens of poular villians from different companys all united. Pretty much an instant graphic novel classic.

    Overhyped & gratuitous!

    I am going to do my best to separate my views of this and the movie because I saw the movie first. I have usually enjoyed Mark Millar's work and have wanted to read this for quite some time. After reading the book I felt that if I was 13 years old and had never read characters swearing before I would have thought this was the best thing ever written. Being an adult however I got almost no enjoyment out of this book. While some of the characters were interesting, the entire main plot point and characters were all deplorably unwatchable and I now see why the movie changed it so much. The background elements involving an old war between heroes and villains and parallel earths was something I would have liked to read about. Sadly, I got people complaining they're bored of murdering and raping people. This was the definition of gratuitous and Mark Millar is better than this. The art by J.G. Jones was really good despite some of the stiffness in certain panels.

    Awesome stand alone graphic novel!

    You may have seen this movie in the theatres, but unless you've read the graphic novel, you haven't got the whole story. It's a deliciously evil and amoral comic that is a must read in my book.

    A reviewer

    I am an adult long-time reader of comics, and I enjoyed Wanted. It had some interesting ideas, and I loved the pastiche nature of the villains which made a game out of knowing what classic character was being referenced. However, I was also a bit disturbed by it. I question whether the growth of 'maturity' and 'grittiness' in comics has reached its nadir with a protagonist we are cleary meant to sympathize with being a murderer and rapist. The murderer aspect is old hat by now, of course, with Wolverine and Punisher leaving piles of bodies in their wake since the 70s, but the rape was something new, and to my mind disturbing. If comics are meant to be 'adolescent power fantasies' and the fantasy is using super strength to save the girl and stop criminals, then they have a sort of noble purpose and correspond to things in our nature that should be encouraged. If the fantasy is killing anyone who crosses your path who doesn't kow-tow fast enough, and then abducting and raping a celebrity, then that is an aspiration that need not be brought to four-color life. Too often Wanted feels like the study hall doodling of a seething malcontented weakling picked on by his peers and laughed at by the girls. If Millar's purpose in Wanted is to make people examine these issues, then I applaud him, but it doesn't feel that way. It feels like he wrote a comic that revels in the sociopathic urge that gets skulls carved onto desks and bomb threats called in. Maybe Millar is right and all the heroes are dead, but it shouldn't be celebrated with the malicious glee that I feel in Wanted.

    Wow!!!!

    Rarely does a graphic novel come along that is original, witty, and hard hitting. Watchmen, the first Preacher graphic, Dark Knight¿. All of them were no only great literary works ¿they were new. Joining this select group is Wanted. Often you hear books claiming to be a fresh take on heroes and villains, but this book delivers. Wesley Gibson is a poor, slovenly looser with nothing going on for him, until he finds that not only is he the son of the world¿s most dangerous villain, he¿s also the villain¿s heir, with the condition that he learns to become a hard nosed killer, and learns to take control of his life. The world is unlike any other comic book world. All the heroes are dead, or remade, and only villains exists now. But the plot only begins there. With only villains left betrayal, brutality, and bloodshed run rampant. With more plot twists and turns than a Gordian knot, Wanted is the hard hitting uncompromising book. Needless to say, the language is realistically foul, and book is soaked in blood. It¿s definitely a mature readers only title. For those of you who are still thinking about getting it, stop thinking and grab one now. It¿s Millar uncensored, and that¿s just as scary as a world full of villains. This volume contains Wanted #1-6, Wanted: Dossier #1, behind the scenes notes, and a full cover gallery. Highest possible recommendations.
