REVIEW: MPH by Mark Millar and Duncan Fegredo

How fast can you run before the world catches up?

Mark Millar has spent the last ten years turning his ‘Millarworld’ line of creator-owned comics into a valuable clutch of stories that regularly burst from the printed page onto the cinema screen. If there’s a more populist, Midas-like, creator working in comics today I can’t think of them. From Wanted and Kick Ass to The Secret Service and the pending Chrononauts, the list of his cross-over hits just keeps growing.

MPH (already optioned for film, naturally) created with artist Duncan Fegredo, tells the story of a petty criminal who, after taking an experimental street-drug, finds he has super speed.

Set in Detroit and tapping in to the real-world problems of that city’s bankruptcy, Millar and Fegredo balance the high-speed shenanigans with a human story of young couple that want to better themselves. But at what cost?

MPH is, like most of Millar’s work, a fun, snappy, fast-paced read that delivers a complete, self-contained, hit in this collected edition. Give it a few years and you’ll be able to watch it on a multiplex screen but why wait? Read it now and you’ll get to enjoy Duncan Fegredo’s frenetic, detailed artwork too.

Image Comics, available now.
