I think he's run out of orifices now.

So expect Dickhead and Knob Goblin to turn up at some point.

New Ennis Title: Arse from your Elbow:

heros are Elbowarse and Cockarse, Elbowarse has a arse on his elbow and Cockarse has a arse on the end of his cock.

they battle Fanny-go-lightly who has an invisible fanny and who's boss is called Adolph Kennedy. Adolph Kennedy is the love child of JFK and Eva Braun who in the 70's suffered a terrible accident which cause all his orifices to heal over  now he can only get sexual release by rolling in a bath full of hamsters.  

its a 70 issue arc in which our heroes finally bring an Irish Chirstmas to American occupied Iraq while discovering what it really means to be a man in the Metrosexual 21st century.

thats just my 30 second pitch, i'll have the full page pitch for you by tomorrow.
I'll be sure to cover the fact that being in the SAS is better than sex.

You know, Garth is in someways a terrible writer;

he continuly reuses plot devices and themes,




crowbars in Irishness whenever he can

and is obsessed with juvenial toilet humour




but when it comes down to it i dont honestly think there's another writer in comics that i have as much fun reading.

Fuckface is in the Nick Fury Max story and the guy with no balls is from the first Punisher Max arc.

Dickhead is in the Bluntman and Chronic Comics....
"I think I could turn and live with animals. They are so placid and self-contained. They do not lie awake in the dark and weep for their sins. They do not make me sick discussing their duty to God. Not one of them kneels to another or to his own kind that lived thousands of years ago. Not one of them is respectable or unhappy, all over the earth."

"No I'll tell you what's gonna happen, she can take half your shit man. She can take half your car, half the trailer park, half your video game, she can even take half your cigarettes Ricky."

I read on another thread that Ennis has written some terrible stuff. I've only read his Hellblazer and some of Preacher, so can anyone tell me what's good and what's to be avoided?

The Good
-Hitman is golden.
-Dicks is fun if you've got a puerile sense of humour like me.
-The comedy Punisher stories are fantastic, the serious ones less so. Although The Punisher: The Cell is great.
-His Demon run is a lot of fun, though not as good as Hitman, which spun off it.
-The War Stories are variable, but mostly good (the best is Johann's Tiger. The worst by a long, long way is Nightingale).
-Pride & Joy is average-to-good.
-The Authority: Kev and The Authority:More Kev are both excellent. Haven't read The Magnificent Kevin yet though.

The Bad
-Just A Pilgrim is risible.

The Ugly
-The Darkness is utter shit.

I don't think I've read anything else by him.

Hey! Look at this!

Thanks. So there aren't as maybe bad ones as I thought there would be. Ennis wrote The Authority? I thought that was Ellis.

Ellis began The Authority. After he left, several writers have contributed, including Ennis.

I really don't care for most of his Hellblazer run, but I think I'm in the minority there. What did you think of it, coralys?
KHAAAAAAAAANNNN!!!!!!!!!!!!

I really liked Ennis's run on Hellblazer. I think it's my favorite. I haven't read any by Jenkins and I'm only now starting to read the Delano stuff.

Punisher: Born is outstanding. In my mind, it stands among both Ennis and Robertson's greatest work.
