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 muchserious 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

    While this didn t quite pack the same punch that Dangerous Games did, it still had a lot of great stuff going on and seems to be gearing up for something big We also get a few issues with the complete Ennis Dillon Fabry team that will later go on to become so popular with Preacher so that was fun too Also it amuses me to no end that Ennis is apparently not allowed to write the word fuck because we re still under the main DC imprint at this point which leads to John substituting frig a lot While this didn t quite pack the same punch that Dangerous Games did, it still had a lot of great stuff going on and seems to be gearing up for something big We also get a few issues with the complete Ennis Dillon Fabry team that will later go on to become so popular with Preacher so that was fun too Also it amuses me to no end that Ennis is apparently not allowed to write the word fuck because we re still under the main DC imprint at this point which leads to John substituting frig a lot instead Take a drink every time someone gets called a frigger lolI think a lot of what I enjoyed about this volume were the side characters In Delano s run all of the side characters felt very flat to me and seemedjust like props that were used to further John s story, but with Ennis they arewell rounded individual people We get a really nice little aside story in issues 57 58...

    3.5I m not sure if I was really in the mood for this volume or it is that entertaining It doesn t matter If you do get some life philosophy thrown at you, it isn t dull or too long.In some of these stories like The Pub where I was Born and Love Kills, Constantine is only a spectator Someone s decided an old pub should be burned to the ground and the owner ends up dead too What they didn t know is that her late husband never left, but watched over her until that night In Lord of the Dance an 3.5I m not sure if I was really in the mood for this volume or it is that entertaining It doesn t matter If you do get some life philosophy thrown at you, it isn t dull or too long.In some of these stories like The Pub where I was Born and Love Kills, Constantine is only a spectator Someone s decided an old pub should be burned to the ground and the owner ends up dead too What they didn t know is that her late husband never left, but watched over her until that night In Lord of the Dance and Remarkable Lives Constantine encounters two very different paranormal beings, leaving one of them mad as hell Counting to Ten is a weird little story where nothing except a strange phone ...

    Hellblazer, Vol 6 Bloodlines collects the individual issues 47 to 61, all of which are written by Garth Ennis The pencilling is done by William Simpson a serviceable but somewhat unspectacular artist his lack of background detail removes some of the depth of the world Constantine inhabits except where noted.As much as I have enjoyed Jamie Delano s character defining contribution to the Hellblazer series, reading Ennis work on the series was a very welcome breath of fresh air, as h Hellblazer, Vol 6 Bloodlines collects the individual issues 47 to 61, all of which are written ...

    Disclaimer This review does not make sense There were several stories within this volume, but the one that really stood out to me was Royal Blood mainly because through this story we managed to come full circle For this we have to explain some things, I guess.Alan Moore wrote the graphic novel From Hell with artist Eddie Campbell,which tells the tale of Jack the Ripper from both Moore s imagination and some historical s...

    Once Garth Ennis impressed with the success of his first Hellblazer arc, the writer began to settle in for the long game He began his Hellblazer finale with the stories in this collection, allowing them to percolate before the inevitable climax He built Constantine up...

    Overall, this is the worst volume of Hellblazer yet, and that s saying something after the agony of hokey new age hippy John Constantine back in Delano s worst days The surfeit of bloodshed and entrails is entirely ridiculous It s poorly drawn shock at the expense of good writing All of Ennis s worst habits could be seen here Still, I liked two stories from this volume, thus one star for each The Pub Where I Was Born was a simply boring ghost story, with a petty infatuation for bloodshed Overall, this is the worst volume of Hellblazer yet, and that s saying something after the agony of hokey new age hippy John Co...

    The most notable thing about this collection is that it contains the issue that first established Constantine as bisexual The issue itself is pretty weird and reminded me a lot of Delano s work As for the other stories, some are better than others The longest, Royal Blood , was also my least favourite Which is unfortunate, but that s how it goes sometime As for the stories I enjoyed, The Diary of Danny Drake and Guys and Dolls are probably the stand outs And they both come towards the The most notable thing about this collection is that it contains the issue that first established Constantine as bisexual The issue itself is pretty weird and reminded me a lot of Delano s work As for the other stories, some are better than others The longest, Royal Blood , was also my least favourite Which is unfortunate, but that s how it goes sometime As for the stories I enjoyed, The Diary of Danny Drake and Guys and Dolls are probably the stand outs And they b...
