On Sunday, January 17th (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), FOX will preview the new TV series HUMAN TARGET-- a full-throttle action-drama centered on Christopher Chance (Mark Valley, Fringe), a unique private contractor hired to protect, based on the DC Comics character created by Len Wein and artist Carmine Infantino and reimagined for Vertigo by Peter Milligan (Shade the Changing Man, Skreemer, Greek Street, Hellblazer).
To coincide with its release, Vertigo will collect Milligan's original 4-issue HUMAN TARGET comic book miniseries with art by Edvin Biukovic along with the follow-up, standalone, 96-page HUMAN TARGET: FINAL CUT OGN with art by Javier Pulido (Robin: Year One) in a 200-page paperback called HUMAN TARGET: Chance Meetings.
HUMAN TARGET was one of the first series my boss gave to me to read when I started working here at Vertigo. If you haven't already read this outstanding interpretation of HUMAN TARGET, this is your chance.
