Review:  ★★★★★

After last issue’s surprising twist reveal that Huck had a brother, things just continue to get better.  We learn of their mother and her daring escape from a Russian laboratory to save herself and unborn sons.  The two set off on a journey to track her down, Huck naturally having to help everyone in need along the way.  Then we get to the end of the issue, and WHAM, another shocking twist.  It’s one in hindsight we should have seen coming, but watching Huck’s pure heart makes it hard to consider the possible lies in the world the wait ahead.  Huck is Superman if Superman had absolutely no ambition in the world but to help others.  That’s why it slightly feels wrong, but satisfying at the same time to watch the darkness in the world creep into his.  Huck is really unlike any other superhero story out there, crafted in a way that only Millar can.
