Ng an African American minister with a price on his head leaves Chance caught between a relentless hit man and a bloody gang wa Looking back The Human Target is the perfect character for Peter Milligan to tackle The uestions about identity becoming other people how much can you change of yourself before you are someone else why psychology doesn't workthat's exactly the type of stories the Croenberg of comics writes If they were to ever make a Human Target movie this would be the perfect adaption for it Personally I'd cast George Clooney as Christopher Chance and Mark Whalberg as Tom McFadden but that might only be because Edvin Biukovic draws the characters similar in appearance to those stars

Human Target #1 4If your life is in danger call Christopher Chance A silky smooth master of impersonation Chance is an assassin's worst nightmar Human Target is a 1999 graphic novel written by rockstar comic book writer Peter Milligan the man behind a stellar run on Shade the Changing man It follows Christopher Case an elite con artist with a knack for impersonation Be you a billion dollar business tycoon or a pastor in a crime infested back alley he will assume your identity and draw fire to himself for a price In the process not only will he become a physical clone of you but also become youDown to the very little aspects of what makes you youHuman Target deals with what it does to one's mind to assume so many different identities assimilating not only physical get ups body language but also one's memory and thought processes The novel very subtly allegorizes how we do it everyday in our day to day lives assuming different personalities wherever needed How our lives are often a testamentan unflinching altar to artificialityWhile the tale shines in terms of ideas motifs and thematics it lacks in characterization The 4 issue mini series moves forward very swiftly with a cast of passable characters which i feel needed breathing room to develop The protagonist is probably one of the blandest anti heroes I've encountered But I've come to know there is a volume 2 of the series which ran from 2004 and maybe there will be on the characters The plot is swift complex and well executed within the meager four issues with a vibrant with a color that often reminds me of Glass Paintings in Churches and the approach is the most prominent in the final issueHowever the world of Human Target is a very intriguing one I can't help but be reminded of John Wick A world of powerful people running the show from the shadows a thriving market for shapeshifting impersonators where villains and heroes alike need someone to draw fire off of them or to deliver their final sermon to the world after they have passed on It's beautifully and tastefully brought to life by Edvin Biukovic
