Kingsman The Red Thingy, was really good.
I loved the original mini and was a wee bit doubtful that this would be my bag, because I don’t like the whole international super spy thing that much - even though I have a lot of love for both Williams and Fraser.
I was very happy to find that this was a greatly fun continuation. The opening action was actually very amusing and Williams dialogue through was spot on, as he often is when firing on all cylinders - which makes for a far more pleasant read. The fact that it’s British characters as well makes it even more natural for Williams - plenty good banter and natural conversations rather than listening to some American struggling to pull off John Constantine - speaking of which, DC, Williams is a bit of a no brainer for a few arcs of the struggling title that you’ve ruined by putting him in the DC Universe then putting non Brits on writing duty.
There was also a lot of heart along with the brilliant humour.
It’s also great to see Simon Fraser again. There’s no topping Gibbons but his style lent itself very well to the story; we all know he does action, facial expressions and body language really well - he’s just a brilliant sequential artist and it shows here.
This was really good - great choices MM.
