Death's Head
Rising stars Tini Howard and Kei Zama take on Marvel UK's hottest character, Death's Head, in a new miniseries! When intergalactic mech merc Death's Head botches a job and wakes up half assembled at a punk show, he goes on a rampage. He's not the only one feeling broken down and obsolete, as former Young Avengers Wiccan and Hulkling are on the scene with a plan of their own. There's no way the best robot bounty hunter - oops, we mean "freelance peacekeeping agent" - in this universe is getting taken down by a couple of C-list heroes still wearing their teenage tights. No, if anybody's gonna take out Death's Head, it's gonna be...Death's Head, yes? It's time for an upgrade - meet the adolescent new model who'll turn Death's Head's world upside down!

Death's Head Review

    Let’s be honest — no one gives a shit about Death’s Head. I hadn’t even heard of him before this title. But Howard’s writing is fun, and there’s some really good character moments between Wiccan, Hulkling, and Hawkeye. Honestly, this should have just been a miniseries about those three, and it would have been even better. Death’s Head who? 5/5 stars

    I've enjoyed some of Tini Howard's other stuff a lot, and on paper a book in which everyone's favourite freelance peacekeeping agent teams up with Young Avengers power couple Wiccan (or whatever he's calling himself this week) and Hulkling, plus Kate Bishop, should have been right up my alley, yes? But somehow this didn't quite click for me. I think it may be that, while seeing Death's Head exasperated is always fun, here he's too much on the back foot for too long. On top of which, the plot I've enjoyed some of Tini Howard's other stuff a lot, and on paper a book in which everyone's favourite freelance peacekeeping agent teams up with Young Avengers power couple Wiccan (or whatever he's calling himself this week) and Hulkling, plus Kate Bishop, should have been right up my alley, yes? But somehow this didn't quite click for me. I think it may be that, while seeing Death's Head exasperated is always fun, here he's too much on the back foot for too long. On top of which, the plot about sinister scientists replicating him and upgrading him feels too much like a repurposed Wolverine story awkwardly interwoven with some ideas on software upgrades and product lifecycles which don't get enough room to fully develop, then have a vaguely Westworld coda about free will tacked on. Still, it's always a pleasure to see the big metal bastard, and hopefully this will remind other creators to make more use of him.

    I foolishly gave the first issue some credit. My mistake.It is awful, in just about every conceivable way. There's no real point to the story. All characters are handled awkwardly and ham-fistedly. The art isn't very appealing.To think that I'd dislike a book with Death's Head, a hot gay teen Death's Head, Wiccan, Hulkling and Yondu (even if he isn't the real Yondu)... egads. It takes effort to turn ME off that.Poor Dr Necker, too...
