    About Garth Ennis Darick Robertson


    1. Ennis began his comic writing career in 1989 with the series Troubled Souls Appearing in the short lived but critically acclaimed British anthology Crisis and illustrated by McCrea, it told the story of a young, apolitical Protestant man caught up by fate in the violence of the Irish Troubles It spawned a sequel, For a Few Troubles More, a broad Belfast based comedy featuring two supporting characters from Troubled Souls, Dougie and Ivor, who would later get their own American comics series, Dicks, from Caliber in 1997, and several follow ups from Avatar.Another series for Crisis was True Faith, a religious satire inspired by his schooldays, this time drawn by Warren Pleece Ennis shortly after began to write for Crisis parent publication, 2000 AD He quickly graduated on to the title s flagship character, Judge Dredd, taking over from original creator John Wagner for a period of several years Ennis first work on an American comic came in 1991 when he took over DC Comics s horror title Hellblazer, which he wrote until 1994, and for which he currently holds the title for most issues written Steve Dillon became the regular artist during the second half of Ennis s run Ennis landmark work to date is the 66 issue epic Preacher, which he co created with artist Steve Dillon Running from 1995 to 2000, it was a tale of a preacher with supernatural powers, searching literally for God who has abandoned his creation.While Preacher was running, Ennis began a series set in the DC universe called Hitman Despite being lower profile than Preacher, Hitman ran for 60 issues plus specials from 1996 to 2001, veering wildly from violent action to humour to an examination of male friendship under fire.Other comic projects Ennis wrote during this time period include Goddess, Bloody Mary, Unknown Soldier, and Pride Joy, all for DC Vertigo, as well as origin stories for The Darkness for Image Comics and Shadowman for Valiant Comics.After the end of Hitman, Ennis was lured to Marvel Comics with the promise from Editor in Chief Joe Quesada that he could write The Punisher as long as he cared to Instead of largely comical tone of these issues, he decided to make a much serious series, re launched under Marvel s MAX imprint.In 2001 he briefly returned to UK comics to write the epic Helter Skelter for Judge Dredd.Other comics Ennis has written include War Story with various artists for DC The Pro for Image Comics The Authority for Wildstorm Just a Pilgrim for Black Bull Press, and 303, Chronicles of Wormwood a six issue mini series about the Antichrist , and a western comic book, Streets of Glory for Avatar Press.In 2008 Ennis ended his five year run on Punisher MAX to debut a new Marvel title, War Is Hell The First Flight of the Phantom Eagle In June 2008, at Wizard World, Philadelphia, Ennis announced several new projects, including a metaseries of war comics called Battlefields from Dynamite made up of mini series including Night Witches, Dear Billy and Tankies, another Chronicles of Wormwood mini series and Crossed both at Avatar, a six issue miniseries about Butcher from The Boys and a Punisher project reuniting him with artist Steve Dillon subsequently specified to be a weekly mini series entitled Punisher War Zone, to be released concurrently with the film of the same name.Taken from enpedia wiki Garth_Ennis

    1. in this second installment, our ragtag band of super-powered types who monitor other super-powered types visit Gay World and then Russia's a story:so this public figure decides to get some community cred, some faggy version of Up With The People, by doing outreach to the fag community. he's a good-looking guy, so of course all the queers rally around him, and one of the younger homos even falls in love with him. well, we all know about gaydar - but did you know that some gaylords also have a gay [...]

    2. Well, thanks to Stewart who suggested that this series is ultimately as good as Ennnis’s Preacher, which I liked very much. I had read the first volume of The Boys some time ago, surprised myself in liking it, as it is purposely vulgar and violent: Sex, violence, language. The title is “The Boys,” so that’s maybe a kind of announcement. There’s aspects of that particular kind of “boy culture” in Preacher, too, of course. Anyway, I reread the first volume last week, and now have rea [...]

    3. Garth Ennis turns the superhero franchise on its head and slaps it where the sun don't shine with The Boys: Get Some the second volume of the series. Get Some contains two stories with the primary characters being Billy Butcher, the leader of this band of superhero bashers and wee Hughie the newest recruit.The first story sees them investigate the murder of a young gay man and two superheroes come under close scrutiny, Tek-Knight's got a bit of a problem, he's not a legit superhero his costume i [...]

    4. 4.0 stars. This series is NOT for the faint of heart or those easily offended. Dark, brutal, violent and at times disturbing. However, it is also original, well written and superbly plotted. Highly Recommended (with the above caveat).

    5. Damn it! WHY DOES THIS HAVE TO BE MY FIRST BOOK OF 2017!!!! So I guess we end 2016 with a 5 star review (Deadly Class Volume 4) and get to start with this (mostly) pile of shit book. The first half of this volume isn't terrible. It's actually kind of funny. Got a superhero who basically fucks everything. Something is wrong with him and anything around him will be fucked from hamsters, to coffee cups, to anyone's ass. It's very scary. The story is really revolving around why this poor gay person [...]

    6. S***… That was disappointing.What’s it about?The Boys have some new missions. One is dealing with a person who was murdered and it seems some superhero activity was connected and the other is about them dealing with some Russian crime stuff, should be awesome, right? Well…Pros:The Russian crime story was pretty good.The art is pretty good.This book stays suspenseful, it is not predictable.This series has lots of great action.It is (mostly) hilarious, some jokes were a bit immature (even fo [...]

    7. Still enjoying this series a great deal. Two complete stories in this volume. In the first, Tek-Knight, sort of a cross between Iron Man and Batman has a unique problem with his sex drive. And there's a possible murder involved as well. It's up to Butcher and Hughie to sort things out. As much fun as the story is, it pales in comparison to the second, in which the team goes to Russia. Part of what makes it sing for me is their Russian contact, Vasilii, a great big joyous bear of a man. Yes, he' [...]

    8. Good job on Ennis, not repeating the plotline from book one (which would've been so easy to do and still fun - but not this much). This gets deeper, more serious and takes us behind the facade to get to know Butcher and his connections.There's a sense of disappointment I can't quite shake tho - after the first book blew my mind, this feels a bit of a letdown. Like as if not every page from here on out will make me pee my pants with how much Ennis hates supes - which I guess he doesn't - but man [...]

    9. Brilliant stuff again. Graphics are great and the story is top class. Wee Hughie is starting to adapt to life with the boys and as usual has all the best scenes, like taking a dump on the floor of the Tek Warrior's secret base.The epilogue was one of the most bizarre I've read, you gotta see it to believe it.

    10. Volume 2 of the series is pretty much a couple of cases of the week stories, one set in the gay superhero world and one in Russia. There is some tangential relevance to the main story-line but on the whole this could be read on it's own. I would like to say that I enjoyed these stories, but they were messy and over-complicated on the whole. The author is still doing his best to shock his audience with the number of potentially offensive references he can fit in about gay people, women and sex in [...]

    11. Boy does Garth Ennis despise Batman/Robin/Nightwing. The entire first story is a not-so-thinly veiled takedown. There's also some venom for Wolverine if you pay close attention.That being said, this series is all about how Supes are assholes, and this goes well with proving that. It also adds dimension to Butcher and Hughie, as well as their relationship dynamic. Not as much on the other three, but I think that might be OK with me so far.The first story seems to be an analysis of the treatment o [...]

    12. The second volume of The Boys has the lads going on two trips: one to Russia and one to Gay World*. A murder mystery involving a Batman/Nightwing/Robin knock-off trio in NY's gay club scene is well-intentioned and ultimately paints homophobes as villains but only ever shows things from the straight leads' perspective. The second arc in which we go to Russia where everyone is HARDER and TUFFER (as is wont to happen with Ennis trips to Russia) is less problematic, and gets in on the thematic meat [...]

    13. Two mediocre narratives in this series. The first, "Get Some," tries to take the curse of homophobia off the book by presenting a supposedly gay-friendly narrative under a barrage of homophobic language. Apparently, it's okay to use homophobic slurs if you don't really care about someone's sexuality. Of course, if you really didn't care, you wouldn't obsessively use homophobic slurs, a point that seems to escape Ennis. Especially telling is that when Butcher scans all the supposedly clean heroic [...]

    14. Let's be honest, this is a love it or hate it book. As I appreciate well-done, audacious violence, sex, and swearing, book 2 was as enjoyable as book 1, but if you're not into violence, sex, or swearing (or even just not into a LOT), no matter my enjoyment, it's not gonna be your bag.But if it might be your bag, if you've heard about The Boys and found yourself intrigued, know this: book 2 builds up from book 1. There's still plenty of violence and sex and swearing, but there's also an actual ar [...]

    15. Book #2 is a little calmer on the disgusting stuff. Still there though.As Book #1, its premise is one close to my heart: every time I read a comic or book (or watch a superhero movie), I always ask the question: "But what about the people that bomb killed?" or "but the train fell off the cliff sure, it saved the town, but what about the people ON THE TRAIN?" Silly I know. It's just make-believe. But still! Really!!This series answers those concerns and sheds a very strong spotlight on the 'super [...]

    16. First for the disclaimer: this series is meant for a mature audience!!! Ok, now that we have that out of the way we can get on with the review. The writing is superb, drawing the reader into the story with ease. Some of the jokes had me gasping for breath only to find myself gasping at something ludicrous a page later. Yes, the violence, language and adult situations are gratuitous, but somehow that is what makes the book and series so enjoyable. Set aside any expectations of this being a superh [...]

    17. I have been unsure how I felt about this and therefore unsure of how to review it,r the most part I liked the abrasive in-your-face flavor, makes you think,but some of it seemed unnecessarily convoluted,but on the whole I enjoyed it, and would probably consider getting the next book.Also, some of it made me laugh my ass off.

    18. It's certainly a matter of taste, but the endless violence and sexual perversion does wear on a reader after a bit. There's a lot that's still funny and original here, but I'll need a break before I tackle volume 3.

    19. Ennis doesn't realize that, in order to tell episodic stories, you have to make the episodes interesting. Boring introductions, no insights, no development for the characters and plot that we've already established. A pit-stop from the series. A slog, from front to back. Angry. Ugh.

    20. Why did I like this series? First and foremost, it's witty, clever and irreverent. These are things Ennis does well in pretty much all of his work. But in my opinion, those talents shine out particularly brightly here. (Continued in book three.)

    21. Just keeps getting better. Superheroes are degenerate, entitled, selfish, money hungry scum.Looks a lot like today's generation of Wall street and other rich only admitted lifestyles.

    22. Wow. The extreme homophobia, racism, and sexism in this book is making me reconsider reading this series.And the art actually got WORSE half way through this book, somehow

    23. 3.5 starsOne of my favourite scenes in Garth Ennis' Preacher series was a conversation between Jessie and Cassidy. Jessie talks about art, you have those choose style over substance or those who choose substance over style. Preacher is my favourite Ennis project and that is because of the substance of the series. The Boys is definately more style, this volume added a bit more substance but not quite enough. The series is great fun, visually stylistic and generally an amusing satire of the superh [...]

    24. It's certainly a thrill ride. This edition includes Ennis' interrogation of the Bat-verse, excoriating the homoerotic aspects of Wayne Manor through the analogues 'Tek-Knight' and 'Swingwing'. Although there is consistent use of offensive terms, and provocative imagery, I think the overall point is to de-sanctify and expose hypocrisy- would it really matter that much if Batman was gay? What do you gain from 'protecting' his status as straight? Those narrow views are exposed in brutal terms. Enni [...]

    25. The good:-The Tek Knight story is a very good wink to the batman mythos. It was very funny to see it this way.-The way Ennis talk about homosexuality. I know it was a comic but he tackled real life issues with real life characters and dialogues. He manage to capture the hate to that community.-Hugie slow descent to darkness.-The finale of the Russian arc.The bad:-Some dialogues were complicated to understand. Many characters and many things happening off scene at the same time. Still. A great co [...]

    26. More Garth Ennis war stories meets Oink hijinks, illustrated with warm humour, crazy levels of perversion and sly delights of hand by Darick Robertson. It's prime Ennis feature film caper, quite enjoyable at what it does, and I liked it.

    27. What a great and fun comic. The premise is a bunch of dudes get together to keep super heroes in check and get themselves into some outrageous situations. The writing stands alone as ennis’ work often does. And the dialogue and dynamic between the characters is totally wild and awesome. 5 stars.

    28. Get Some!If you've ever been itching for a fight, you know how good it feels to say to taunt your opponent(s). If you've ever prepared something delicious for everyone, you might have shouted it! You may have even yelled it during sex (I don't judge).This story works on three levels at once. Once again, it's just a great and engaging story on its own, but at the same time it's a beautiful character study, and a satire of the comic book industry and commercialization itself.There is a fourth leve [...]
