Imagine if James Bond had a wayward, street wise nephew that he took under his wing and brought into the spy business. Sounds intriguing, doesn’t it? You could play it straight or tongue-in-cheek and both techniques could conceivably work. Try mixing these two approaches and you could have a disa...

2.5 stars overall
Well, very different from the film in most ways.
Book different from the fim? Shocker! ;-P
I expected that but I was expecting the names to stay the same for some reason haha... perhaps blame it on me only hearing of KINGSMAN from the film and not knowing the graphic novels exis...

The only reason I read this last night was because milady took us us out for a double feature last Saturday night (50 Shades of Gray and Kingsman). After reading this last night I'm edging closer to one conclusion.
Matthew Vaughn's movie version of Mark Millar's comics are better than comics. Vaug...

I don't see The Secret Service as a spy thriller story but as a YA coming of age story. Well, Millar's style of coming of age. It is the good point of start. There are other secret agent parodies with children or teenagers as main protagonist. There is similar theme with XXX movies that set adult...

It was with cautious optimism that I picked this one up, and I'm glad to say it not only exceeded my expectations, it also redeemed Mark Millar in my eyes.
Back in the heyday of The Ultimates, The Ultimates 2, Wolverine: Enemy of the State: Enemy of the State Ultimate Collection, and The Authorit...

I was unaware the upcoming movie Kingsman: The Secret Service was based on a graphic novel until I saw this in my local comics shop, but had to pick it up when I saw Mark Millar's name on it (And, bonus, the artist is Dave Gibbons of Watchmen fame). This is typical over-the-top Millar, taking a k...

Mark Millar pushes my buttons again. It's got the usual wish fulfillment and pop culture. Lots of heads blowing up though. Dave Gibbons of Watchmen fame does the art. The director of Lock Stock and Two Barrels contributed to the plot. I think it's going to be a movie. It's nice to be Mark Millar....

I would say not Millar's best work but still pretty passable. Some interesting ideas. Would have probably been great as the start of a new series.

What?! No Roxy or Merlin?!
There are a lot of different details but it's the same basic story. Overall, I enjoyed the film more.

Read this as a sort of warm up for Kingsman 2 tomorrow night, and thought it was brilliant! The film was adapted from this story, and while there's a lot of plot changes, be it character connections, character descriptions and back stories, the main story remains the same.
As violent and sweary a...
