"One Last Shot At Redemption"
Part Two of The Unshredded Man picks up right where the last issue left off, some one special to John Matthews is not taken as hostage and the blackmailer is getting blackmailed. This issue spends the rest of the issue exposing the real monster that lies inside John Matthews. I love Milligan's choice of names, John Matthews sounds so common that it is like Guy Smith in X-Statix, a generic name for the everyday man.
The GoodThe story runs really smooth and we as the reader can see the ugliness of greed and when Money is someones God. Money itself is one universal deity, many people from all around the world value money above all else and it is great Milligan teamed up the events of 9/11 with the commercialization and greed of society. Human Target has become a smart thriller in which Milligan can weave in his social commentary and make this comic have more impact.
The BadSome may say the art, but I like the cartoony look, since Human Target is about the everyday people and it is easier to see ourselves in cartoonish drawings compared to more detailed photo real drawings.
The VerdictI cannot recommend Human Target enough.
