There are some pretty blatent patterns indicitave of conservatism in Millar's writing. Not American conservatism exactly, but more reminiscent of Sir Edmund Burke. For instance, he often sets up democratic governments as an antagonist in some way. If they are not the badguys outright, like in Wanted, then they are an obstacle or accomplice to the badguy, as in this Ultimate Avengers storyline where the Red Skull is no longer an agent of Nazi germany, but a creation of the U.S. Government. Millar also wrote "Wolverine: Enemy of the State.
There is also the "might makes right" monarchical aspect of conservative philosophy played out in Wanted and The Authority. Its also worth noting, pretty much all of Millar's "heroes" kill.
Compare this to the classic "liberal" heroes who refuse to kill and who work with the authorities to arrest and prosecute bad guys and its pretty clear that Millar's writing reflects a conservative worldview.
Add to this really petty, contrived stuff like the comments about Hillary Clinton's "cankles" and Millar just makes himself seem like a radical American "birther"-type conservative.
This is where I personally draw the line. I can handle the fact he comes from a particular worldview, but when he starts throwing in red meat for the "ditto-head" radicals like that I begin to object to spending my money on that kind of stuff.
I'm dropping this book.
A triumph in hype and self-promotion. They didn't even finish a single story-arc and they already had a movie deal.
Maybe its just me... I love the story for the entertainment value but one thing bugs me.
Willpower isn't an emotion.
I didn't used to think I would still be reading comics when I was 36... but here I am.
Unless comics start to really suck in the next 15 years I don't see any reason that I would stop reading them when I am 50.
They only have 10 of 12 episodes available on itunes so far.
They actually wrapped up a plot thread quickly and concisely.
