Human Target #1 4E a man who can assume the identity of anyone marked for death and take out the assassins with brutal precision But impersonati. This is Milligan's take on the classic DC character Human Target a private investigator and bodyguard who is able to completely take on another's appearance and personality The plotting and concept reads like a Hollywood thriller but Milligan gives the story a darker psychological bent Unfortunately the length of the story doesn't give him the space to properly flesh out the central concept despite it being such an integral part of the story's themes Milligan never takes the time to show how the Human Target intuits a client's personality how they disassociate themselves from their own identity or how they change their appearance so convincingly it's just sort of assumed that all these things happen The writing is strong as is the art but it's difficult to take the story's concept seriously when it is sketched so vaguely
