Human Target #1 4E a man who can assume the identity of anyone marked for death and take out the assassins with brutal precision But impersonati Local Comic Book Store had a 1 trade paperback sale As I flipped through every title on the table I notice a title that inspired a show that I uite enjoyedSo it turns out the TV series had little in common with its source material than the names and maybe attitudes of the characters Excuse me while I act sarcastically surprisedSURPRISEI enjoyed the TV series but I'm pretty sure I would have enjoyed this as a series even In the comics Christopher Chance the Human Target impersonates other people taking over their lives in an effort to protect them from assassins attackers or whatever other dangers might ail themThe story twists and turns all over the place In the end it plays out like a spygang thriller version of the Looney Tunes sketch where Sam the Sheep Dog and Wile E Coyote keep taking off disguises until one is a stick of dynamite and the other is toast Right up my alleyThis is my first exposure to both writer Peter Milligan and artist Edvin Biukovic It seems Milligan is known for this kind of deeply psychoanalytical character analysis I might have to seek out some of his non Human Target stuff after I finish the other HT Trade I picked up I thought Biukovic's art was great as well His expressive faces really sold the story and emotions of the characters Combined with Lee Loughridge's colours the art here really sells the deep tortured stories of the characters I was sad to discover at the end of the trade that he's no longer with us Brain tumor it seemsMy main issue with the book is one that happens to a lot comics when you're diving through old trade paperbacks For the most part the story is self contained But one arc doesn't really resolve itself by the end Also with a title like this that's started and stopped so many times over the years if you are enticed enough to continue on it can be hard to determine what book you'll need to pick up next This particular series appears to continue into Human Target Final Cut which I think I will have to track down sometime

If your life is in danger call Christopher Chance A silky smooth master of impersonation Chance is an assassin's worst nightmar A one man Mission Impossible team Christopher Chance disguises himself as his clients and lives their lives in order to protect them from whatever danger they face—in effect he becomes a Human Target Originally created in the 70’s by Len Wein and Carmine Infantino this 1999 reboot could have used another issue to help set things up better and to help with the overall flow of the story it felt a little cramped and would probably leave a little lost anyone unfamiliar with Chance and why he does the things he does As it was Peter Milligan tells an interesting story where all the principles—the not so pure Rev James Earl stylish gangster and soon to be TV show consultant Dee Noyz assassin at large Emerald Human Target understudy Tom McFadden and Chance himself—all have secret lives that will come light I liked the dip into madness and potential loss of identity that Milligan brings to the concept and I especially loved the start of the climax where Chance unwittingly addresses to everyone gathered at the end about facing one’s self as they truly are in a moment of truth Those few pages held a cinematic flair and was the high point of the story Edvin Biukovic’s Art is crisp clean and carries the action uite well The story ends with one outstanding mystery—who wanted Christopher Chance dead The answer comes in the seuel the Final Cut
