Summer lovin': FHM, the magazine for guys too embarrassed to buy Penthouse, names Mark Millar's Wanted as one of its "Things for the Summer," dubbing it "the comic of the summer." The magazine also features a rather subdued Q&A with Millar:

"I'd been writing superhero books for a couple of years and getting ever-so-slightly bored. I think I just hit a point where I couldn't relate to these decent, all-American characters and wanted to write a book about a lying, greedy, lecherous little fuck like me. Criminals are always more interesting than cops and so I applied this same logic to the superhero genre which, surprisingly, hasn't been done too often in the past."
