When the market is flooded with competition and the authorities are on your tail, what's an all-American super villain to do? Go to Spain, of course! Johnny Bolt convinces his villainous pals to pull off one last heist but will culture shock get to them before the policia do? And when Johnny's target is revealed as the greatest super villain of all time, things go horribly wrong...


If you’re looking for something that blends superheroes with Oceans 11 then you really have to get this cracking Mark Millar Graphic novel that waves an intricate plotline alongside cracking artwork in a high octane thrill ride to obtain millions of dollars from a retired super villain. Its got everything you’d want from some serious kickass heroes through to double dealing malicious thoughts that really keep you guessing throughout as to whom is playing who.

Back that up with great storytelling with solid prose and a cast of characters that were fun to be around which all round made this a real joy to read.
