Starlight # 3 by Mark Millar & Goran Parlov *SPOILERS*
I am a hopeless sucker for science fiction and I'm an even larger sucker for worlds controlled by media. In Starlight, the distant planet is controlled by a tyrant who uses televised propaganda. This chapter finds McQueen incarcerated after attempting to exert a little vigilante justice on some crooked law enforcement. He now awaits execution, yet there are those who will stand together to bust him out.
This actually makes me hopeful that when I pick up Millar's MPH, I may be very happy with it. I'm not always thrilled with Millar. I'm hoping Starlight is the beginning of a new golden era for him. Some people will argue that this began with Kick-Ass but I'm not quite sure about that one ;)
