    It's pretty predictable and poorly delivered. I would love to read the books though.

    it wad not bad, but not great, if there is nothing else to watch on tv, I will watch it, but at this point I am not sure I will go out of my way to watch it, I may set the dvr to record the second episode to see if it gets better before making my final decision on it

    :cool:
    Actually had one of his earlier appearances. It was a back up either in Brave and Bold or a Superman comic. Pretty much bought it because I was collecting everything Neal Adams drew.

    Basically Peter Milligan was a pretty weak writer. I never gave Human target a chance though to be honest.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_Target

    The Human Target (Christopher Chance) is an American comic book character created by Len Wein and Carmine Infantino: a unique combination of private detective and bodyguard who operates by impersonating his clients in order to eliminate threats to their safety. He first appeared in Action Comics #419 (December 1972).
    Chance's early appearances came in back-up stories in Action Comics, a title much better known for featuring Superman tales published by DC Comics. Later, the feature appeared in Batman titles such as The Brave and the Bold and Detective Comics.
    Christopher Chance starred in a limited series, a one-shot, and then an ongoing Human Target series written by Peter Milligan and published under DC's Vertigo imprint.
    Human Target has twice been adapted as a television series: once briefly in 1992, starring Rick Springfield, and one premiered on Fox on January 17, 2010[1] starring Mark Valley.

    Oh, so basically it was DC's filler comic that kind of grew a fanbase?
