The Secret Service , and was released globally on 14 September , about a week before the film's release. The game is a hybrid action adventure - construction simulator , where players construct impregnable secret bases, similar to Fallout Shelter , while infiltrating enemy bases in run-and-gun missions based on the plot of at least the first film.
Several months later after the launch of the tie-in mobile game for Kingsman: The Golden Circle , on April 24, , it was announced that the game's servers will be shut down on May 23, , after "careful consideration" and the game's poor player base. The Secret Service is still in development, with the Android version remaining in early access. The Golden Circle: The Official Movie Novelization , the novelization of the film Kingsman: Luxury retailer Mr Porter has been a marketing partner of the franchise since the first film, when it worked with costume designer Arianne Phillips to design the bespoke suiting, while everything from the ties and shirts to eyewear, umbrellas, shoes and watches were designed by heritage brands such as Cutler and Gross , George Cleverley, Mackintosh , Bremont , and Adidas Originals.

The Robb Report. Berry Bros. Hard Rock Cafe. Nerdist Industries. The Great Game Icon Comics. Mark Millar. The plot seems like a great spy-comic. And great it was but still things were off for me. One of my problems here is the way of picturing protagonists, Jake and Gary. They look almost alike! There is a big age difference but still, I couldn't distinguish between them. Overall, I would recommend this comic. It's not a great one, but not a bad one either.
The reason I read this was its on-going comic series; Kingsman: The Red Diamond. Now I can start that. And hope I woul I am disappointed here. And hope I would enjoy that more than this.

It was fun, and the cast had a great chemistry together have such a crush on Harry Hart but somehow never got around to reading this until the trailer for 'Golden Circle' came out.
One of those 'Why Not?
The story was interesting in some parts but mostly lackluster for me. It jumped around alot in and some cases it felt like things were missing and rushed. The artwork too I wasn't impressed with for the most part A little but at the same time Eggsy and his mom especially, looked weird to me and not 'in sync' with how they drew Jack.
Jack London was just as interesting as his counterpart in the film, would have loved to know more of his backstory The villain in this was a good one like Valentine but more, not pathetic exactly I was rooting for him to his comeuppance but overall felt no strong emotions toward him.
Most of the artwork No Roxy or Merlin from the film come on, they are awesome! Story could have been fleshed out more Maybe if I had read this before the I saw film I would have liked it more?
I didn't entirely hate this but for me, it could have been so much better. Bit of a mixed bag really. Mar 03, Alan rated it liked it. The only reason I read this last night was because milady took us us out for a double feature last Saturday night 50 Shades of Gray and Kingsman.
After reading this last night I'm edging closer to one conclusion. Matthew Vaughn's movie version of Mark Millar's comics are better than comics. With The Secret Service it might be that I liked the movie The only reason I read this last night was because milady took us us out for a double feature last Saturday night 50 Shades of Gray and Kingsman. With The Secret Service it might be that I liked the movie more because Vaughn decides to take the premise of a gentleman spy movie and play it a bit more as a parody.
I certainly never thought I'd see Collin Firth pull off an action role, and be so good at doing it. The movie's basic bad guy plot is the same for both the movie and the comic. Gary remains a likable enough character, and arguably the comic does a slightly better job of showing Gary's maturation process. There are some Easter Eggs in the script for fans of old British spy television shows. At the same time I have to give Millar some credit from going away from his usual shock and awe school of of writing that he has indulged himself in the past few years.
I'm not a prude but good story telling is not always about trying to shock your or repulse your reader. Perhaps, like Gary, Millar is growing up a little bit. View 1 comment. Feb 15, Jokoloyo rated it liked it. Well, Millar's style of coming of age.
It is the good point of start. There are other secret agent parodies with children or teenagers as main protagonist. But this book takes a further step, a delinquent British Secret Service agent.
I am not impressed with the antagonists, the standard secret organization. They are dangerous a mad visionary leader with high tech, goons that properly trained , but somehow pathetic. The lack of details in the plot are suitable for children. The bloody violence scenes are not. You could guess some of anonymous kidnapped actors are not for teenagers of s hide spoiler ].
So, I am confused It was with cautious optimism that I picked this one up, and I'm glad to say it not only exceeded my expectations, it also redeemed Mark Millar in my eyes. Enemy of the State: The over-the-top plots, the witty and occasionally off-colour dialogue, and the crazy action set-pieces all helped make these books favourites of It was with cautious optimism that I picked this one up, and I'm glad to say it not only exceeded my expectations, it also redeemed Mark Millar in my eyes.
The over-the-top plots, the witty and occasionally off-colour dialogue, and the crazy action set-pieces all helped make these books favourites of mine, books that I will go back and re-read every once in a while.
But then over time, in his subsequent books, I noticed that he was recycling some of the same stunts and that the frequency of characters calling each other morons or retards was on the way up. And then there was the shock value factor. At times it felt like he was writing some of this stuff just to see how far he could go. It can be argued that because of his own imprint - Millarworld - he can go pretty far indeed, and as long as people download his books, why should he change anything?
His Millarworld titles are hit-or-miss with me. Superior was okay, Kick-Ass was juvenile, the inappropriate - and even more juvenile - Kick-Ass 2 turned me off completely. It's like Millar thought his readership was comprised exclusively of male teenagers.
On the other hand, Wanted , Nemesis and Supercrooks were all fantastic. So, as you see, it could have gone either way with this book. The super-spy origin story, the mysterious abductions, personal redemption, ultra-cool spy gadgets, and the Bond villain with his dastardly plan all helped make this a very fun book.
The main character goes through a major transformation, and achieves the potential he always had but was never encouraged to pursue. The story serves as a set-up for a franchise, and if Millar does write more books for this series, hopefully they will be just as fun, and not geared towards the Kick-Ass demographic.

Gary is a thuggish oik from a generic housing estate in Britain who spends his days boosting cars and smoking spliffs. The opening sequence is reminiscent of Kic Gary is a thuggish oik from a generic housing estate in Britain who spends his days boosting cars and smoking spliffs. The setup of the young nobody suddenly realising he has untapped potential within him is Wanted all over again. The rest of the book is just brazenly lifted from James Bond - the debonair secret agent, the gadgets, the licence to kill, the swish car and associated weaponry, even the bad guy with the fiendish plan in his mountain lair!
The ending is predictable duh, does Jame Bond ever fail to stop the bad guy? The characterisation was completely lazy: Uncle Jack WAS James Bond, Gary was pitiful and dreary as the lead, and the rest of the cast were archetypes from the abusive boyfriend to the megalomaniacal boss.
It tries too hard to be edgy, cool, even inspiring and winds up being the opposite of all three. The Secret Service: Kingsman is by far the worst book in the Millarworld so far. View all 5 comments. Mark Millar fans. I was unaware the upcoming movie Kingsman: The Secret Service was based on a graphic novel until I saw this in my local comics shop, but had to pick it up when I saw Mark Millar's name on it And, bonus, the artist is Dave Gibbons of Watchmen fame.
This is typical over-the-top Millar, taking a known quantity -- in this case the spy genre -- and "putting it up to 11", creating a warped coming-of-age story only he could imagine. It's similar in a lot of ways to what he did with superheroes in Kic I was unaware the upcoming movie Kingsman: It's similar in a lot of ways to what he did with superheroes in Kick-Ass and with assassins in Wanted , but better, as this story has a tighter focus and is fully resolved in this six-issue arc.
Dec 04, Chelsea rated it liked it Shelves: I had some high hopes after enjoying the movies, this was kind of boring. Sep 19, Bekka rated it really liked it Shelves: Read this as a sort of warm up for Kingsman 2 tomorrow night, and thought it was brilliant!
The film was adapted from this story, and while there's a lot of plot changes, be it character connections, character descriptions and back stories, the main story remains the same. As violent and sweary as a Deadpool comic, and a good, fun story! Why is this not a huge running comic, with multiple stories?! Mark Millar pushes my buttons again. It's got the usual wish fulfillment and pop culture.
Lots of heads blowing up though.
Dave Gibbons of Watchmen fame does the art. The director of Lock Stock and Two Barrels contributed to the plot. I think it's going to be a movie. It's nice to be Mark Millar. Jun 11, Jesse A rated it liked it Shelves: I would say not Millar's best work but still pretty passable. Some interesting ideas. Would have probably been great as the start of a new series. Oct 09, Clarissa rated it liked it. No Roxy or Merlin?! There are a lot of different details but it's the same basic story. Overall, I enjoyed the film more.
Nov 15, Joaquin Garza rated it liked it Shelves: Mar 24, Susannah rated it really liked it Shelves: I have enjoyed nearly all of the Mark Millar graphic novels I have read, and the film adaptations of them that I have seen. The same way that Kiss Ass subverted and took the piss out of the superhero genre, Kingsman does the same with spy films in the vein of James Bond.
The villain plot is reasonably original kidnapping sci-fi actors is a stroke of genius however the climax is fairly standard, but I guess it has to be in a traditional 3-act structure. There are great moments along the way tha I have enjoyed nearly all of the Mark Millar graphic novels I have read, and the film adaptations of them that I have seen.
There are great moments along the way that made me laugh out loud: I have not seen the film yet which stars Colin Firth but I look forward to it.

There are many cute one liner gimicks used throughout. Lots of name dropping including such as pop culture icons as William Shatner and Mark Hamill. This was a fun little roll in the hay with some clever moments. I think however this would have been better served if it was either full out satire or a serious spy thriller instead of being the fence sitter that it is.
It was however captivating enough that I could not put it down and had to download it once started. I don't read a lot of graphic novels comic books any more save some Captain America and Avengers collections mostly out of nostalgia. I was also however a huge "spy-fi" fan in my youth and now when I can find it.
Happily it seems to be making at least a slight comeback with people rediscovering the Bond novels and Bond movies still going strong. Recently I saw the movie Kingsman: The Secret Service, and liked it a great deal. So I decided to track down the graphic novel s it was based on.
Not I don't read a lot of graphic novels comic books any more save some Captain America and Avengers collections mostly out of nostalgia.
Not bad. All in all good. The book is I must say a little more simplistic than the movie no really, it is and the movie is in the end better. Still I think you'll enjoy this. Try it yourself.
Jun 26, Jon added it. Kingsman isn't Millar's best work, but it does have a lot of his signature elements and is entertaining. It doesn't have the energy and fun nature of the film, but it was worth reading.
I'm not sure if there are future Kingsman installments coming out, but I doubt I'd read another one and would probably see the adaptations instead. Amusing read. I can see how they used some bits of this to create Easter eggs in the movie.
Perhaps I was expecting this to be more like the film despite knowing they'd be very different , which I love, but overall I just didn't really enjoy this.. This year, a film was released that quickly became one of my favourites. I loved it so much that I just had to get the source material and read where the film had originated from.

His home life is a disaster and he seems to be good for nothing more than causing trouble and being arrested by the police.
Fortunately he has an uncle who can bail him out of trouble. Naturally, his uncle is fed up with having to do this and so finally offers to get him into employment — as a spy, so to speak. Meanwhile, celebrities are disappearing around the world. The story is fast paced and drawn clearly. A problem I sometimes find with manga is that the panels can be too busy and confusing, so it was a nice change to be able to understand everything and see clearly what was happening.
It helped with the story telling and kept it flowing neatly. The artwork was pretty ugly at times and the characters seemed to have the same faces and features overall. It was hard to know sometimes if it was Gary or Jack in a scene, and some of the women would have really masculine faces, yet have the stereotypical large chests and be scantily dressed. Not all tropes need to be followed within every genre. Kingsman is full of testosterone and sexist views. Women are there as sex objects while the males are out saving the world.
The comic was enjoyable and I sped through it. Once it finished, I was disappointed as I wanted more. For more reviews like this, go to www. A few weeks back I was invited to see a screener of the soon-to-be released Feb 13, movie, Kingsman: The Secret Service.
