The Killer is the main character of the comic WANTED created by Mark Millar and published by Top Cow. It was a short series with several crossovers including a Savage Dragon appearance in Savage Dragon issue #128 appropriately titled WANTED. For those those who don't know this was yet another example of a comic butchered by movie producers. The Killer A.K.A. Wesley Gibson is the worlds best killer who works for a supervillain Fraternity. His father the original Killer was taken out by an unknown sniper from a distance of around 2 miles. After which Wesley who had been completely unaware of his absent Fathers real line of work had been living with a girlfriend who was sleeping with his best friend, spending his days at a dead end job with a boss that treated him like a skid mark, his nights surfing for interenet porn, being harassed by neighborhood punks, and altogether feeling quietly helpless, met Fox. Fox finds Wesley in a Deli where he had been ordering the same lunch every day- a salmon over sourdough with mustard greens and wasabi mayonaisse, just to feel different from the crowd. Immediately Fox tells him he is coming with her. When Wesley refuses she slaughters everyone in the deli. On the way back to the Fraternity she tells him about his father and how supervillains are real. Upon arriving he meets Professor Seltzer, one of the heads of the families who proceeds to explain who he is and how if he does what his dads will says he will inherit a fortune. Wesley again refuses but later agrees and starts his training with Fox. Soon he becomes The Killer and as the Supervillains killed all of the heroes in 1986 they are free to rape, steal, and kill all they want. It is a mature read with great character names like F***WIT, $#!%HEAD, and Sucker. Definately recommended!

Head- Captain America Movie Figure sculpted over
Goggles- Packaging Plastic and sculpt
Torso- FO Punisher
Arms and Hands and Neck Collar- Nick Fury with sculpted elbows
Legs to top of Shins and Belt with Holster- Movie Punisher with sculpted knees. I had to take apart the torso to remove the belt.
Calves Down- Mr. Sinister shaved and sanded down
Boots- FO Daredevil

Accessories are from various figures including the ones above. This guy has a huge arsenal. The highlights and rust/ blood spots on the weapons were all added. Every single item down to the smallest trigger was repainted. I used MM acrylics, Aves Fixitfor the sculpts, and sealed him with Krylon Matte. Gatling gun and sniper rifle were from model kits purchased from HLJ. They feature a windup gatling and a pump action rifle with interchangeable sights and stocks. this figure was way more work than anticipated. Thanks for looking and comments are always welcome. Happy Voting!

BTW, Anyone else think that Wesley Gibson looks exactly like Martial Mathers(EMINEM)?

Killer work J. I love the stylized photos, but maybe add 1 regular, fully lit shot to show the amazingly detailed work.
