Review:  ★★★★★

For us, when we hear of a new title coming from Mark Millar, we expect greatness.  Huck lives up to this expectation.  Huck basically takes a Superman style character, the boy scout who does it all with a smile, and puts him in a small town.  Everyone knows he is special and has powers, but the town, along with Huck himself, are content with having him do good deeds for the residents, such as collecting their trash and pulling stumps out of the ground.  Eventually any hero dreams bigger and Huck may have endangered his secret permanently.  The story has a complete, down to Earth charm about it that really make Huck feel like he could be your helpful neighbor next door.  It also poses a question against another famous comic line, “with great power comes great responsibility.”  Should a hero of his power have been limiting himself to “menial” tasks.  Shouldn’t the town have known this and pushed him to bigger heights?  Huck might be a simple superhero story from the outside, but it quietly makes you rethink normal hero conventions
