    One thought on “Huck #1”

    1. Huck is such an endearing and likeable character. I'm so excited to see where Millar is going with this story!

    2. [Image Comics] FIRST ISSUES: The Good (Full review on the WondrousBooks blog.)Huck is by far the most childish comic book in this entire lot. It has a story which I would have enjoyed in my early youth as well. The graphics can’t be called beautiful per se but they are adorable.Huck as a whole is… adorable. I liked it so much! (Don’t be fooled by the rating, it’s simply so hard to rate comic books with the same system I use for normal books.)My absolutely favourite part about this one is [...]

    3. Wow. This is a really really good first issue. It introduces quickly who Huck is and why he is special and how the story is going to work, ending with a cliffhanger to leave us wanting for more. It's also beautiful to look at and the watercolor palette gives it a special feel. I haven't felt this excited about a new comic in a while.

    4. I'm a fan of Rafael Albuquerque's art, and I generally enjoy Millar's ideas/intent as a writer, if the execution sometimes falls short for me. I love Huck and his practice of doing one good deed each day, big or small, as well as his home town's and rescuees' willingness to keep his secret. That's the world as I hope it works, so I'm anxious to see what's going to happen now that Huck has been outed. I'm hoping that optimism and compassion will triumph, instead of this becoming yet another depre [...]

    5. I found this on the newest Image Comics' releases page and instantly fell in love with its cover.I easily fell in love with Huck, too.He's a big, smiling young man whose main occupation is thinking about the good he could do, every day, for his community and actually spending his time completing his task.He's completely dedicated to other people's happiness and well-being and after a few pages, I couldn't help but wishing him the same amount of happiness and love he gave to others, for himself.I [...]

    6. Great first issue. This was a breath of fresh air. Huck is super endearing and sweet. I love what he represents. Also, the art is fantastic. Looks like I found another comic to follow.

    7. From what I gather, Huck seems to be a different sort of entity for writer Mark Millar. The only gripe I would have with this release is that its rights have already been sold to a film company, which gives me the impression its objective is to serve as nothing more than endorsement. However, as the first issue looks to be quite promising, I won't allow such bias to cloud my judgement. I have no idea what turn the story's to take, but judging by the end of this first issue, I'm willing to bet we [...]

    8. Not sure what I was expecting but this was not it. Nothing new here. A person with super human abilities who wants to use his abilities for the good of mankind and at the same time keeping his identity secret.I was looking for more in a #1. With the price of comic books these days I will have to pass on this series.

    9. Huck was released before DC brings back the oldschool Superman and thus was a reminder of him. It is just a sweet story with a good-hearted Super man trying to help all the people he can.My full review in Greek:comicdom/2015/11/23/huc

    10. Esta será una historia conmovedora Una persona grande con un corazón aún más grande.No puedo esperar para seguir leyendo.

    11. 4 stars from Brad, read the full review at FANTASY LITERATUREDisclaimer: just so you know, some of the books we review are received free from publishersHuck is the feel-good action movie you’ve been waiting for, except it is a comic. Of course, as with many Millar comics, there are already rumors that Huck is heading for Hollywood, so you could wait to see it in the theaters. But, why wait?Huck is an endearing character who is based on the Clark Kent model of the good-hearted, simple-minded, s [...]

    12. Interesting beginning, the story opens up possibilities for many opportunties for stories, and Millar can tell a story. I look forward to reading the rest. The artwork I thought was particularly good during the motion scenes and gives the characters true life and sense of movement.

    13. Comics have increasingly become darker, more twisted, and devoid of joy. Which - in small doses - can be compelling. But, overwhelmingly, it puts me off reading them. (Or watching the movies - ahem "Superman"). It seems like writers are focused more on gooey-er scenes, then on imaginative storylines. Give me thoughtful plots, or pointless drama anyday. In an article about creating Huck, Millar said: "I loved Superman as a kid not because of his edginess or his potential for a fatal solution, but [...]

    14. Possible Good Deeds For Friday:1.) Leave the 58 dollars I saved up in a library book for a stranger.2.) Mow the lawn for all the old people in town.3.) Tell Ralph to take the day off and do his shift for him.4.) Leave a note for Mrs. Blake, telling her how brave she's been since her big operation. I just love Huck!! What a great beginning to hopefully a great series. He has a journal of possible good deeds!!! He watches the new so he can save people around the world. I want to compare him to Sup [...]

    15. I read this the other day after reading about it in the special Comic Con issue of entertainment weekly from awhile back. I happen to stumble upon it when I was picking up a few single issues this weekend and decided to give it a try. I hope it continues as I really enjoyed the first issue. The art style is great and in the 30 or so odd pages I really started to fall in love with Huck already. Such a cool story concept. Looking forward to more

    16. The premise is so simple: Huck makes a list of good deeds to do every day, then goes out and does them. You get virtually no information about his powers, just enough of a hint of his motivation to make you wonder what's behind that mysterious grin, and a setup for the conflict by the end of the issue. I hope Mark Millar shows similar restraint in future issues, and look forward to seeing more of Rafael Albuquerque's expressive faces and figures.

    17. Small town feel, meets big time heart!Huck shares this resonance within the community he grew up in, and relishes in the simple aspects of what it means to be a "hero", finding his reasons beyond justification, or causality. There are no agendas, and the similar tropes normally associated with the "superhero" do not apply here, as Huck is more an individual for humanity. This was a heartfelt read, along with an adorable and likable character.

    18. Charming and sweetHuck is simply a sweet and charming book about a simply sweet guy with super powers, not the kind that stands in a costume in front of TV cameras but the kind who avoids the spotlight as he fixes the world's wrongs, no matter how small or how overwhelmingly big they may be. We all need a hero like Huck.

    19. I don't know how I'll feel about the series as a whole. The ending of this one left me with some trepidation that way. But I liked this issue quite a bit. The characters and setting are neat and all the little details are very well done. It's nice to see an unusual take on the idea of a superhero.

    20. This book follows a simple plot but the story flows just as well as the amazing art. It has that kind of Spielberg essence which comics definitely need today, especially with all the crap going on in the real world. We need escapist books like Huck to remind us that there is still good in a broken world, and true heroes do exist.

    21. This one surprised me by how much I liked the main character, and how quickly the author was able to make me feel for Huck. By the end of the first issue I was hooked and upset about the treatment he received.

    22. Huck is a good-natured guy with a big heart and the purest intentions. I picked up this book and didn't put it down until I finished. Everything about it is perfect. Even if you are not a comic book fan, read it for the story. This is a 10/10 story that needs to be read.

    23. Huck is a very likeable character. However, if we're talking about the plot, there's nothing quite special about it. Just another main character with superpowers, but of course I'm going to pick up the next one because Huck is so adorable.

    24. Millar said he created Huck in response to Man of Steel trauma. And yet, Huck so far is essentially Clark Kent who never made out of SmallVille.

    25. For a first issue it was OK. I didn't feel like it was anything special, though. It interested me enough that I will pick up #2. But unless it WOWs me I'll probably pass on the series.
