This looks like it might be even better than the Udon mini. First issue was a riot, and I never get sick of him using his power, especially in this issue with the captions.

Who's writing/illustrating it?

It's more of an action comedy piece, think Deadpool or Nextwave. Taskmaster has apparently pissed off the wrong people and there's a billion dollar hit out on him, so him and a diner waitress are on the run from Hydra, AIM, and a dozen other groups looking to score (including several dredged up out of old comics, and several invented for this series).

Hmmm the way you wrote that plot reminds me of Knight & Day.

Haven't seen it yet, but it won't be the same unless, because of Taskmaster's power/memory loss, Tom Cruise didn't even know WHY he pissed them off. Also, I doubt there were dozens of different groups of goons like alien bikers and scientists in yellow jumpsuits.

No alien bikers, but there were quite a few thetans.

Coincidentally, I haven't seen Knight & Day either.

Or did you, only your superhuman power that allows you to use any technique or move you've seen overwrite the memory of having seen Knight & Day?

Well, I remember going to Woodstock before I was born...
