Written by Mark Millar
Art by Tommy Lee Edwards
Millar and Edwards are doing an excellent job of straddling the line between fantasy and reality with this 'villains enter our world' story and this issue quickly ramps up the pace as we see a beautifully rendered fight, right off the bat, between the Hulk and Juggernaut.
Millar's writing for the little boy is excellent and manages to distill the sense of awe and wonder to the reader over these two comic book characters come to life right in front of his eyes and battling it out.
Obviously, no one believes the child, not even his father, but it does promp the father to go visit the mysterious and much hyped Wyncham character, who is being kept in a mental ward or hospital and cannot speak or move. The villains are staying in his vacant home, for reference.
The boy begins wondering if he imagined the whole thing or if it was real, but, before he can decide either way, the villains make his choice for him as they begin attacking the small town.
Verdict - Must Read. I find it very easy to relate the main character, through which we see the events of this story, and Millar is doing an incredible job of relaying the thoughts and feelings of the young boy. Edwards art is a perfect fit for this style of book and the fight with Hulk and Juggernaut is something to behold.
