Full disclosure: While the last couple of Retro Reviews represented the top-selling Marvel and DC books of the year 2005, I can’t find the numbers on the top-selling independent books. (The Top 300 Comics of that year consist entirely of Marvel/DC joints, unsurprisingly.) So, looking month-over-month, I found an issue that sold really well and seemed noteworthy, then rolled my mental dice and figured we’re probably close enough… Either way, we’re in for quite a ride with Mark Millar at the helm. Your Major Spoilers (Retro) Review of Wanted #6 awaits! **Today’s Retro Review contains adult themes, language and violence.
Press Release Bestselling writer Mark Millar (JUPITER’S LEGACY) and artist Goran Parlov (Fury MAX) team up for the show-stopping final installment of the hit series STARLIGHT, featuring an epic conclusion and a variant cover by the renowned Cliff Chiang (Wonder Woman).
