SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL -- Gr 7 Up -Huck, abandoned at birth and adopted by a kind couple, is a Good Samaritan with a penchant for deeds that range from random acts of kindness to superhero feats of heroism. Huck lives a low-key existence until his good works become public knowledge; soon everyone is seeking assistance from him. Like all superheroes, Huck becomes the target of a villainous plot to destroy him. Written by Millar (Kick Ass) and illustrated by Albuquerque (American Vampire), this title follows the superhero origin trope of abandonment and self-discovery. Albuquerque's illustrations, which use background colors to convey mood, add to the pacing of Millar's story. Although readers are likely to note similarities and draw comparisons between Huck and superheroes, such as Captain America and Superman, Huck is an everyman hero with extraordinary abilities-and without the suit. VERDICT Recommended for young adult comic book fans.-Tamela Chambers, Chicago Public Schools, IL
