Ugh. This is the worst of Garth Ennis. Overly violent and bloody, meandering, overlong and just full of gay/tranny “jokes” that make it super obvious Ennis is either a serious homophobe, 13 yrs old, or has serious issues with his own sexuality…”there’s more shit on this than Elton John’s cock” really??? That’s fucking genius you dumb twat. Ennis is that guy who tells racist and homophobic jokes but then says it’s ok because he has a gay uncle, or knows a black person.

As for the book, I honestly skimmed more than half of this…Hughie and Annie still have issues, Butcher is still a nasty cunt, the Seven are repulsive, sexual perverts. Honestly, their violence and disregard for life bothers me more than how they like to orgasm.

Vought is evil, there’s gonna be a throw down, Hughie doesn’t belong here, No ones as hard as Butcher…mate. He’s almost more of a bully to Hughie than any of the Bad guys…just end this already. Even the art isn’t strong anymore…not that art needs to be good to show gay sex and bodies blown to bloody bits…

This series should have already wrapped up…it’s tired, derivative of itself, and just here to cash a paycheque. I don’t feel the passion I used to…this just feels phoned in…and way overly long.

Just not worth my effort. I expected a lot more…Preacher is next up, and depending how it goes, Ennis might be moved to my never read again list. Or maybe I’m just not 17yrs old and this shit doesn’t seem cool. Violence language and sex doesn’t a Tarantino make…

About Gavin

I'm a lover of pop-culture, from movies to music to books to TV shows to well...comics, and just about everything in between. I'm also a history buff, and spent 4 yrs getting a fancy BA in it. When I was at said University, I got my learn on AND spent all my money on CDs and VHS (yup, I'm THAT old.) However, I'm happy to discuss any topic really, as I love a good debate or just to be proven right. I'm Canadian, so I wear shorts and flip flops 9 months of the year, but no, I am NOT fanatical about hockey (I actually prefer baseball, thank my American father for that!). I love the outdoors, but don't get out enough... I've got a sick twisted sense of humour (hence why I'm friends with these Shallow folks) and believe that laughter is the best medicine...except penicillin...cause laughter won't cure the clap.
