The comic predecessor to the movie Kingsman, it's actually a much better-plotted story with a less cinematic (and less stupid) conclusion. I was pleasantly surprised by the lack of violence from a Millar book. While I'm going to be wary of any movie sequels, this is a story I'd like to see more of. ( )

An entertaining coming-of-age story of a young man named Gary who, with the help of his uncle, learns how to be a secret service agent. ( )

OK. Ending felt rushed and the main character seemed to disappear for a good chunk of the story. Enjoyed the movie more. ( )

This book was just not good. To be fair, I read this after seeing (and loving) the movie adaptation, and I was possibly judging it a little extra harshly for not being the movie, which is how my 1 1/2 stars rounded up to 2 instead of down to 1.

Aside from not being as great as the movie it inspired, this book still did not have a lot going for it. The story felt incredibly rushed, and none of the characters or plot points were well developed. I also found the art to be subpar, and rarely could I ever tell the male characters apart, especially after Eggsy suited up and suddenly aged about 20 years. ( )

Entertaining but not nearly as slashy as the movie, and apparently I need the slash to be interested.
