It is eight years after "The Burn" - when the sun began to die, first greatly swelling in size and vaporizing the Earth's oceans, then slowly fizzling away leaving a barren, dessicated husk nearly devoid of life. Those unlucky enough to survive The Burn are beset by grotesque animal mutants caused by the changing rays of the sun and gangs of marauding men, intent on spending the last days of the human race pillaging and raping.

Marianas Trench is like a Garden of Eden in the desolate lanscape that has become the Earth. A group of scientists built it and are now calling it their home. The also built a spaceshit capable of faster-than-light travel and plan to fill it up with a large cache of genetic samples and colonize another planet. Their settlement is continuously attacked by zombie-like things - a creature thought to have evolved from a jellyfish takes control of dead bodies and uses their own casualties agains them ...more

An excellent comic by writer Garth Ennis, illustrated by Carlos Ezquerra. The sun has gone nova, and the remnants of humanity struggle to survive in the barren wasteland left behind. Graphically violent, wry and bitter. The pilgrim is a man on a mission from god. Many such stories blend religion with science fiction, but the resolution of this spiritual journey is different from most.

Recommended for teen+ due to harsh language and graphic violence. No sexuality worth mentioning. Committed Christ

What to say ? Ennis is just enough, or not ... He continues writing masterpieces.

The story is another one of The Pilgrim and the end will leave you shocked. Only Ennis blasphemous mind can think of something like that.

5 stars out of 5 !!!

Only slightly less enjoyable than the original story. This 4 issue mini closes the door in the Pilgrim story line in only a way the Garth Ennis can. Full of demented twists and darkly inspiring dialogue, I enjoyed it.

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
