This trade contains Hitman/Lobo #1, material from Superman 80-Page Giant #1, Hitman #37-50, and Justice League/Hitman #1-2.

This is the final collection of a 60 issue long comic with numerous running plotlines. No point starting here. Read from the beginning.

There was a fair bit of side content as and after Ennis wound down the Hitman ongoing. First up is a bad day at the bar as the most obnoxious bounty hunter in the galaxy decides to stop by Noonan's for a drink. Tommy's resulting battle with L

In which the story of Gotham hired gun Tommy Monaghan ends the only way it ever could. And yet this is a book which can also get genuine pathos out of a story where a man has a portal to an extradimensional realm up his arse, so equally, there are real moments of joy in amongst the eventual tragedy. And, more than that, there's the fact that this book made it to seven volumes (and the last few are pretty hefty). Not so long ago, weird little books by odd Brits nursing their own obsessions could ...more

A really nice ending to a very fun, very silly series. I would recommend reading the entire thing.

This series (and this book in particular, which closes out the Hitman saga) holds a pecial place in my heart, so this review is for the series overall.

While not as mind-bogglngly brilliant as James Robinsons' The Starman Omnibus, Vol. 1 saga (Seriously, check out that series imemdiately if you haven't already!), or as cutting-edge as some of the more recent titles that have come out since, this book is pure Garth Ennis from start to finish.

Surprisingly, what makes this series really work is the

I really, really enjoyed this series. Far more than I ever expected to.

I started it mainly because it had Ennis' name on the cover, and I was in the mood for something "light"...which it was, mostly, for the first 20-odd issues.

Then, things steadily go to shit for poor Tommy and company. Their circumstances get more dire and, one by one, the cast gets smaller, all ending in this collection, where Tommy and his best mate Natt die, not saving the world, but instead a single innocent woman who had

Read the entire series over the last couple weeks. Made me so happy to find something of Ennis' that I can count as as much of a classic as Preacher and Punisher MAX. It had a bit less of his gross out stuff than usual but all of the friendship and humor and dark crime writing that he can do so well with characters I genuinely cared about. I was enjoying it for its fun factor and then I got to the Who Dares Wins story and my mind was blown. It was so and complex and so tense and scary. After tha ...more

That Lobo story was SO bad. Everything was amazing though. The last Six Pack story was beautiful and the 8 part closing time had a moving, funny, poignant arc. The JLA story made me want a Hitman-Superman story. This is very breaking bad in that you know that tommy and natt dying is inevitable
Yet you hope for the redemption that he strives for. What An amazing run. Definitely a favorite. Hitman #60 has to be a classic. Not sure if it's 5 stars but I'll let it have it

Best comic book series I've ever read. Characters are loveable, well thought out, intricate and unpredictable. Story line is funny, smart, bad-ass and takes you by surprise on many occasions. Garth Ennis and John McCrea were made for one another. My only criticism is its over. Read it before they turn it into an awful film. Cauldron boys forever.

The story arcs got better and better as the 60-issue series approached its end point. This collection even included crossovers from other series that I has not read before. Always a bonus. I found Hitman to be deeper and more emotional than its reputation for "funniness" predicted. I like it as much as I Like Preacher.

Aw, man, it's the final Hitman stories. There's the last Sixpack story, which might have the happiest ending for any of the characters. And then there's the last Tommy story, and that...man. Such excellent stuff, and it gives Tommy a chance to maybe redeem himself. Maybe. And it's excellent.

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 ch ...more
