The Bring on the Bad Guys wiki last edited by DonFelipe on 01/30/14 02:57AM View full history

The first issue of Wanted starts with Wesley Gibson describing his life. The first few pages have his girlfriend cheating on him with his best friend, his boss making work hell, him getting chased home by "semi-literate cholo fucks" and going home to look online for diseases he might have. His life is crap and he knows it.

Wesley states that his father walked out on him and his mother when he was 18 weeks old and then the man is shown. Wesley's father is a middle aged man with a big gut and a lot of money. He's about to start filming two younger men having sex (while explaining that he's not gay) when the building they are in is filled with bullets. Mr. Gibson jumps out the window, chases the attackers and guns them down. When he's about to kill the last one, he gets shot in the face by an unseen gunman. Following this scene there is a funeral for Mr. Gibson and members of the secret villain brotherhood that he was part of attend the funeral to discuss his death.

The story switches back to Wesley and his horrible life where he meets Fox, one of the people who was at the funeral. Fox opens fire on a sandwich shop Wesley is at and abducts him, taking him to the secret headquarters of the villains and telling him about his father. Wesley meets the Professor and learns that he himself has super powers.

NO STARS FOR YOU, Mark Millar 0

Oh god, Wanted.I first read this comic roughly five years ago at a public library. I read it in one sitting and hated it. So, after recently deciding I wanted to write up a piece about Mark Millar, the author, I re-read this delightful comic, and now I hate it even more. I know in the past I've gone on about how awful different comics are, but really, they're nothing compared to the awfulness that is this comic. That being said, onto my review of the first issue in this godawful 8-issue title. W...
