    It's egregious. There's one issue left, but King doesn't seem like the kind of writer to apologize for bad decisions, so I imagine this is going to conclude with "Adam Strange sucks."

    Wow, just getting looped in on this, that is some stunning artwork! Just hoping not to get my heart broken. Is there any indication if this will be contemporary or an 80's period piece?

    Press F for Ice. She was fun in JLI and now she is in a King production.

    Add Adam Strange to the list of characters downgraded for "impact".
    At least, at being in Black Label we can count this miniseries as non Canon if King repeat his tropes.

    Safe to say the book is out of canon.

    EW: How Tom King and Greg Smallwood's Human Target went from 'stupid' to 'transcendent'
    What is the romance element of the book?

    KING: It's a book about the Human Target investigating the JLI, and Ice plays a big role in it. Her and Human Target have a spark is the way to put it. It's just a gorgeous story between two people... There's a scene where Ice and Chance are in the ocean together and it was just my chance to write, I don't know, like "high sexy noir." This was Bogart and Bacall, and it was incredibly fun and rewarding to see it come to life.

    What inspired you to bring the Justice League International into the story?

    KING: Well, this story starts off funny and then gets f—ed up. My youngest son, who's 7 now, his favorite superhero is Ice. I don't know why he settled on that, but that was just from watching the cartoons. Every night at dinner, I talk about my stupid job and my stupid job is playing with toys. My son's like, "Well, when are you going to play with Ice?" So literally I was like, "Okay, Human Target…" We had this idea that if he would explore a superhero world, which world would he explore? So I literally pitched it to get my son to stop nagging me at the table. And then, of course, we made this super sexy book where Ice is... She's not a femme fatale, but it's not a book I would give a 7-year-old to read. It's a book for adults about adult relationships.

    Didn't Tora and Guy get back together at some point or am I getting my facts wrong. Because reading the part about the ocean is kind of awkward if she didn't break up with Guy. The description of one of the Human Target issues did refer to him being her "ex" but when did that happen.

    I mean, she does seem to be the Femme Fatale of the book...despite what King says.

    I don't recall seeing/hearing about any breakup. To accommodate King's story, I'm sure their relationship will either be vaguely dismissed as happening off-panel, or completely ignored altogether.
