Crosswind #1

WRITER: Gail Simone
ARTIST: Cat Staggs

When a Chicago hitman and a mentally abused housewife experience an unexplained event affects the pair, forcing them to trade places.

Upon first diving into the comic, I was immediately struck with a feeling I would get turning on a gangster flick. It was like watching Goodfellas on a page as we meet Cason Ray Bennett – an esteemed hitman in the Chicago mob. He seems to have everything he could want, from the suits, cars and women. But the cost of being one of the best comes as he is called to clean up after the botched jobs of others.

Enter Juniper Elanore Blue, the attractive suburban housewife of a demanding and unfaithful husband. Her stepson resents her. She is a target of harassment from the neighbourhood boys...

Kingsman: The Secret Service

Writer: Mark Millar (Co-Plotter: Matthew Vaughn)
Artist: Dave Gibbons
Publisher: Image

When Gary learns his Uncle Jack is actually a super spy, he’s given the opportunity of a lifetime – to follow in his uncle’s footsteps and save the world.

Kingsman: The Secret Service is one of the most outright entertaining comics I’ve read recently. With excellent dialogue and pacing, and especially explosive and momentive action. Spy gadgets and martial arts and saving the world are all in a day’s work for Jack London, and his nephew Gary is on the way to becoming a super spy in his own right.

The dialogue is snappy and naturalistic, with enough stylistic flair to match the intensity of the genre. Bits of comedy woven through, especially when it comes to the villains, works pretty well...
