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.

About this book

Wiki

What if everything in your life was out of your hands and those around you propelled your fate? Your girlfriend left you for your best friend; your boss gave your job to someone better. What if then, after all this, someone gave you back total control? What if he revealed you were the next in line to join a secret society of super-villains that controlled the entire planet? Mark Millar and J.G. Jones provide a look at one man who goes from being the world's biggest loser to the deadliest assassin alive.
