When a super spy takes his nephew under his wing, he proves that with a little support, understanding and the opportunity to be given, those given the monikers of work shy, louts and those from the poorer communities can overcome anything.
It's a great story, a must read and anyone who loved kick-Ass, Wanted and Huck will love this.
I am already very keen on Millar's other works including Jupiter's Circle, Kick Ass and the charming Starlight. The Secret Service maintains many key traits of Millar's writing including heavy violence, an astute wit and excellent pacing. There are enough differences from the film to make this an enjoyable read and as a stand alone I can only imagine it would be difficult to put down!
There are a lot of wonderful references to comic culture (in particular marvel) to keep a light hearted edge amongst some of the more gory events. The overlay of a James Bond esque approach to espionage is a lovely tribute to the Sean Connery era of said films. That said the book hits hard and has its share of surprises.
The physical book is well bound and printed on thick high quality paper allowing the artwork to really stand out. It is a fantastic purchase and the ideal way to enjoy this exciting comic.
So, fun at the start and not bad, as such. Just not great.
Eggsy is the underachiever of all time, but he is given the chance to be better, than the sinkhole estate that he has grown up in, by his Uncle who is a spy of the extremely violent kind, but with the veneer of respectability that Bond always exudes.
The art from Gibbons is as great as ever and I have to say that this is a comic book worth having in your collection.
