A little bit of advice for all my fellow comics geeks...

"When the going gets tough, the tough read Ennis."

I spent a very enjoyable if profoundly disturbing evening catching up on all the Marvel MAX miniseries I didn't realize Garth Ennis was writing. I would really love to know what goes on in his head when he comes up with this shit. Born, the Punisher-origins miniseries, was definitely one of the darkest things I've ever read in any genre, and his Thor miniseries, featuring zombie Vikings let loose in New York City, features more decapitations per capita than a Highlander fanfic archive. Oh, and Dr. Strange has a great line: "I'm Dr. Strange, not Dr. Suicidal."

I have no idea why someone as relentlessly girly as me is obsessed with Garth Ennis. But I'm not complaining.
