Comic Book Review: Bloody Mary by Garth Ennis

cover84691-medium.pngI guess Bloody Mary rode the Bad Girl™ wave in the 90s printed by DC under an imprint. There were 2 volumes in 1996 and 1997 (Bloody Mary and Bloody Mary: Lady Liberty) combined into a single trade in 2005. Image’s 2016 reprint also includes both volumes.

With all the over-the-top violence you might expect from an Ennis book.

The story does seem a bit dated. It’s interesting. But 20 years later, it doesn’t seem fresh or new. And some of the writing is weird and eye-rolling.

There was one funny line.

Though I have to say I can appreciate the villain from volume 2. If America falls to fascism, this will be how it’s done.

Of course, the 2nd volume was even sillier than the first.

Not my cup of tea, old thing.

Thanks to NetGalley and Image Comics for a copy in return for an honest review.
