Format: Paperback
Quite possibly Simon Furman's finest non-Transformers work, and Marvel UKs best character. There's just so much to enjoy in this book - Death's Head's own sniffy introduction, the sly digs at capitalism in Death's Heads three core programming directives... and Spratt isn't as irritating as you may remember!Furman did some of his best work here, all the characters are fully rounded - witness the aggrivation DH feels by Spratt's prescence and the verbal sparring between Keepsake and Thea.its all here. the whole package rocks along nicely, and is just a great fun read. It also includes my favourite ever sequence in a comic book: meeting the Fantastic Four, Death's Head is returning home and the Thing accuses DH of being a super hero, to which DH repiles "Super hero?! No. You were right all along. Name's Death's Head... I kill people for a living!". The look an Mr Fantastic's face is priceless.The artwork is spot on throughout, Lee Sullivan handles a comic episode particularly well, Bryan Hitch does an outstanding job and of course, Geoff Senior is just dynamite.Special mention also to John Higgins, whose work I hadn't come across before this and turns in some dark, moody work.Also excellent are some back story re-caps from DH himself and some great behind the scenes sketches and an enthusiastic afterword from Simon who clearly had a lot of fun writing the character. The only minor quibbles being the lack of any explanation for DH's sudden appearance on top of the FF building, and the curious final few panels of the book which suggest that the book met an untimely death. If you can, I strongly recommend you seek out The Body In Question which explores Death's Head's origins and is beautifully painted by Geoff Senior.Such a shame that Marvel UK fumbled the ball when they handed the character to Dan Abnett...sigh.

Remember reading this in my youth, love the character and after seeing the Death's Head II story I wanted to revisit the character. Still the original and the best!
