In a quiet seaside town, Huck uses his special gifts to do a good deed each day. His neighbors return the favors by keeping his abilities a secret. But when a newcomer alerts the media, a firestorm erupts, sending Huck on an adventure that will change everything. This brand-new series from writer MARK MILLAR and artist RAFAEL ALBUQUERQUE presents a comicbook unlike anything youÍve read before. Featuring a Feel-Good Movie variant cover by RAFAEL ALBUQUERQUE.
Even in this day and age, superheroes still tend to have lairs, fancy outfits, and all kinds of folderol. Not so Millar's fantastically endearing new star. Huck is a thickly muscled but sweet-natured grown-up orphan who works at a gas station, wears nothing but overalls, and spends his days making lists of planned good deeds. These range from finding lost pets to rescuing hundreds of girls kidnapped by Boko Haram. Huck is something like a more functioning version of Steinbeck's Lenny, albeit with superhuman strength and an ability to dash down roads at supersonic speeds. Needless to say, his idyll as the aw-shucks semi-lonely good guy is challenged when dark secrets from his past rear their head, and multiple parties try to take advantage of his good nature. Albuquerque's (American Vampire) art is kinetically charged and lavishly colored. Millar (Kick-Ass, The Kingsman) delivers a punchy and propulsive story with heart while toning down his bent for ultraviolence.
