Noel Clarke, the director behind, well, Kidulthood has put his skill to putting out a comic series. Yep, teaming up with artist Joshua Cassara, they have managed to craft The Troop, which by all appearances is a coming of age story where the young and troubled find themselves to be harbourers of great unbridled power whilst being hunted by evil forces. So X-Men, then.
But it got a nod and a sound bite from Mark Millar, and, I quote, “Fan-bloody-tastic”. Okay. What he said.
Across the planet and unknown to each other, a group of troubled teenagers lead lives of quiet desperation. But hell is about to befall them and they find their lives destroyed when they are targeted by dark forces. On the run, they discover they have unbelievable powers and must come together – as The Troop!
