Huck #1Comics super-scribe Mark Millar has a new series out this week – Huck – which features art from the amazing Rafael Alberquerque and tells the story of a secret small town hero who tries to keep his powers to himself but does good deeds for the people in his hometown. It’s got a delightfully retro feel to it, so we ask the creator of Hit Girl and Kick Ass if creating Huck is his way of doing a good deed for his fans…

Exit Generation #1It’s not often you read a ‘post-apocalyptic’ tale where everyone is actually better off after a population eliminating exodus, but that’s the unique twist in Sam Read’s brilliant sci-fi mini series Exit Generation. (Plus there’s also some evil aliens just to make sure everyone isn’t completely happy with their lot). We caught up with Sam to find how he would get on in his own accidental utopian world or if he’d wish that he’d headed for the stars with everyone else!

The Shield #1Archie Comics’ Dark Circle imprint continues to revive long-forgotten Golden Age properties with The Shield #1, which sees this Captain America-style hero replaced with a different kind of lead and some more modern ideas on heroism. But can this American Icon’s new title fight the good fight on the shelves, or this one book which is just too revolutionary to succeed?
