The Secret Service

Ew to be the next James Bond meanwhile what's the secret link between a series of kidnapped sci fi stars the murder of an entire town and a dark secret from inside Mount Everest Under Uncle Jack's supervision Gary's spy skills and confidence blossom but when the duo. The only reason I read this last night was because milady took us us out for a double feature last Saturday night 50 Shades of Gray and Kingsman After reading this last night I m edging closer to one conclusionMatthew Vaughn s movie version of Mark Millar s comics are better than comics Vaughn made the only X Men movie that I ve liked so far out of the the three I ve seen on DVD and I liked the Kick Ass movie than the comics With The Secret Service it might be that I liked the movie because Vaughn decides to take the premise of a gentleman spy movie and play it a bit as a parody I certainly never thought I d see Collin Firth pull off an action role and be so good at doing it The movie s basic bad guy plot is the same for both the movie and the comic Gary remains a likable enough character and arguably the comic does a slightly better job of showing Gary s maturation process There are some Easter Eggs in the script for fans of old British spy television showsAt the same time I have to give Millar some credit from going away from his usual shock and awe school of of writing that he has indulged himself in the past few years I m not a prude but good story telling is not always about trying to shock your or repulse your reader Perhaps like Gary Millar is growing up a little bit

Learn what's behind the celebrity kidnappings the knowledge comes at a price The conspiracy begins to unravel but who can be trusted when so many prominent figures seem to be involved It's a must be seen to be believed action spectacle COLLECTING SECRET SERVICE 1 6. It was with cautious optimism that I picked this one up and I m glad to say it not only exceeded my expectations it also redeemed Mark Millar in my eyes Back in the heyday of The Ultimates The Ultimates 2 Wolverine Enemy of the State Enemy of the State Ultimate Collection and The Authority Vol 2 Mark Millar was one of my favourite writers The over the top plots the witty and occasionally off colour dialogue and the crazy action set pieces all helped make these books favourites of mine books that I will go back and re read every once in a while But then over time in his subseuent books I noticed that he was recycling some of the same stunts and that the freuency of characters calling each other morons or retards was on the way up And then there was the shock value factor At times it felt like he was writing some of this stuff just to see how far he could go It can be argued that because of his own imprint Millarworld he can go pretty far indeed and as long as people buy his books why should he change anythingHis Millarworld titles are hit or miss with me Superior was okay Kick Ass was juvenile the inappropriate and even juvenile Kick Ass 2 turned me off completely It s like Millar thought his readership was comprised exclusively of male teenagers On the other hand Wanted Nemesis and Supercrooks were all fantastic So as you see it could have gone either way with this book The super spy origin story the mysterious abductions personal redemption ultra cool spy gadgets and the Bond villain with his dastardly plan all helped make this a very fun book Most importantly at least for me Millar seemed to have restrained himself with the cheap put downs and the shock awe The main character goes through a major transformation and achieves the potential he always had but was never encouraged to pursueThe story serves as a set up for a franchise and if Millar does write books for this series hopefully they will be just as fun and not geared towards the Kick Ass demographic

    I am disappointed here The plot seems like a great spy comic And great it was but still things were off for me One of my problems here is the way of picturing protagonists Jake and Gary They look almost alike There is a big age difference but still I couldn't distinguish between them Overall I would recommend this comic It's not a

Shocker ; PI expected that but I was expecting the names to stay the same for some reason haha perhaps blame it on me only hearing of KINGSMAN from the film and not knowing the graphic novels existed till awhile afterwards Wasn't paying attention I guess Needless to say I loved the film It was fun and the cast had a g

    I don't see The Secret Service as a spy thriller story but as a YA coming of age story Well Millar's style of coming of age It is the good point of start There are other secret agent parodies with children or teenagers as main protagonist There is similar theme with XXX movies that set adult rebellious adults

    Gary is a thuggish oik from a generic housing estate in Britain who spends his days boosting cars and smoking spliffs His dad’s a thug who beats up his doormat mother and they all live on benefits Then one day Gary’s Uncle Jack shows up and reveals that he’s a Secret Agent on Her Majesty’s Secret Service and would Gary like to be one too? I generally like Mark Millar’s Millarworld books but I couldn’t believe

    I was unaware the upcoming movie Kingsman The Secret Service was based on a graphic novel until I saw this in my local comics shop but had to pick it up when I saw Mark Millar's name on it And bonus the artist is Dave Gibbons of Watchmen fame This is typical over the top Millar taking a known uantity in this case the spy genre and putting it
