A largely unnecessary story - as there were really no loose ends left open at the end of the first volume - Ennis returns to the world of Wormwood to just have FUN. It's grosser, crasser, gorier and funnier than the first volume because it doesn't have to concern itself with the 'world building' aspect of storytelling and instead just focuses the characters and the viscera. Plus, NOBODY, can write a bad guy (and subsequently torture them) better than Ennis.

Fans of Ennis's Preacher would do them

Life is good for Wormwood - Maggie took him back after his infidelities and he's enjoying a strong, monogamous relationship. Even his brain damaged pal Jay seems to be collecting his wits. But he's about to be hit with a few changes - namely Pope Jacko, who was previously sent to Hell for a whole litany of abuses, is back and it turns out Wormwood's going to be a dad: but is he ready?

Having read the first two Wormwood books, I thought this was an interesting enough series but not Ennis' best; h

when Garth Ennis puts an idea on paper I'm probably going to be first in line to get it. I'm such a fanboy right about now.

Danny wormwood now has to deal with a reincarnated Pope Jacko who has parsed the body of his competition in the television works. will he and Jay be able to save the world? probably. or wouldn't have the same appeal of something good didn't happen.

I liked this book, as it felt like closure.
the first book in the series was a knocked out of the park in my eyes, as not only was the story itself excellent (see my lengthy review) but anything with Ennis and Jacen Burrows is guaranteed to be a favorite of mine before I even get near it.
The middle book, "The Last Enemy" was too short to develop any narrative on it's own, and felt like a cheap bridge to this book, #3 in the series, "The Last Battle."
Although the antagonist and the story here fe

It was ok. I might have liked it better if I had read the first one before it, but that is the hazard of picking things up randomly from the library as you see them.

Artwork; standard ordinary digital, no surprises no major inspirations.

Storyline; intriguing, I like the notion of the antichrist and jc being on earth but uninterested in 'fulfilling their destiny' and bonding over the fact. The notion of god being mad has already been done to death in Preacher though, Garth.

Characters; Variable; ma

This was great. Jesus is back as a more prominent character, and his interaction with Wormwood is what takes the cake. Also, demonic Pope Jacko is a brilliant idea that's executed horrifyingly well. Loved it. The ending was great, too.

The son of Satan and Jesus go up against the demon Pope Jacko. More irreverent and hilarious fun from Garth Ennis.

Enormous fun. Manages to out-perform vol 1 (not seen 2 yet) by reining in the egregiously sophomoric anti-religion stuff (just a little, just a little :) wouldn't be Ennis without it) and ends up telling quite a reasonable story - nods to every genre you can think of, bypasses soft targets in favour of a coherent and genuinely disturbing tale. Still think Jay is one of the better Christs of literature... like him even more now. A page-turner, black and funny and involving, and showing off Ennis' ...more

Amidst the normal horror / sex / violence that one comes to expect from Garth Ennis, there's actually a fair amount of thoughtfulness and consideration in this TPB collection of the mini-series. Wormwood has to deal with possible fatherhood and his girlfriend discovering his real identity, not to mention his friend Jay beginning to come to his senses. Sure, there's plenty of trademark NSFW over-the-topness, but there's plenty here besides that.

Much, much better than previous episodes of Wormwood.
Fluent, funny and violent just as only Ennis can do. Even the ever present wordy quality did not bother as much as it sometimes can do.

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
