Comic Cover Of The Week: The Human Target #1

HT Main

Welcome back, fellow fans of fantastic fiction, to another cool, compelling and creatively compulsory – Comic Cover Of The Week! And what a cover we have for you this week, the deftly defined drawing skills of gregarious – Greg Smallwood are put to sublime use in the premier issue of DC’s Human Target, and combined with the superstar scripting scribe that is – Tom King (Mister Miracle/Strange Adventures) this fantastic first issue is an absolute must buy!

Christopher Chance has made a living out of being a human target, a man hired to disguise himself as his client, as to invite would be assassins to attempt his murder. He’s had an absolutely remarkable career, that is until his latest case, protecting Lex Luthor, when things go sideways. An assassination attempt that Chance did not see coming leaves him vulnerable and left trying to solve his very own murder! Now he has just twelve days to discover just who in the DC Universe hated Luthor enough to want him dead (Seriously! I mean that would be pretty much everyone, right?)

Human Target is a hard-boiled detective noir tale, with absolutely gorgeous visuals by Greg Smallwood, and yet another sublime story from the palpably persistent pen of astounding auteur – Tom King, and if that wasn’t enough awesome for one issue, this titanic tale also benefits from the presence of THE greatest line up in Justice League history – the infamous and incorrigible – Justice League International! I mean, who can say no to the brilliance that is Blue Beetle and Booster Gold, Fire and Ice, Mister Miracle and Big Barda, Rocket Red, Captain Atom, Guy Gardner, Gnort, Martian Manhunter, Black Canary, and, of course… The Batman!

The Human Target #1 Is Available To Buy From Your Local Comic-Book Emporium Right Now!
