Dead or Alive

Mark Millar's the Phil Collins of comics or maybe the Bon Jovi. Big on catchy hooks and slick riffs and mad skills but short on risk and danger and vision. Chosen was him with the safety off, though, and brilliant for it and Wanted came close even if everything else
- - -Civil War, Ultimates, Wolverine - - - is the comicbook equivalent of a Jerry Bruckheimer event movie : hot and fast and empty and PG-13 only with IQ points and prog-rock set pieces. Am so there if a Chosen movie happens but the Wanted movie just got my attention. Two things: Timor Bekmambetov directs. And the Eternal Angelina stars.

Looky, drooly.
