Remember the Grindhouse fad from roughly ten years ago? Someone needed to have told Victor Gischler that Grindhouse-style “homages” are over now. That’s what makes Clown Fatale so boring, because Gischler uses “because Grindhouse!” as a constant excuse for lazy writing and a cliché-ridden script.

Why are four scantily-clad ladies circus clowns for kids? Grindhouse! Excessive T&A? Grindhouse! How do these four women get stupidly mistaken for professional hitmen? Grindhouse! How do they instant

So if you’re a fan of ...more

On par with Garth Ennis. Gratuitous everything, but I found it amusing. Plus a huge fan of Gischlers.
