Just when you think Garth Ennis has gone too far, just when you thought it was safe to walk the streets, just when you thought no one would go near the idea of the world's first superhero comes The Pro!

So this is a comic about a prostitute who gains superpowers.

It might, now that I'm thinking of it, be the *only* comic about a prostitute gaining superpowers.

If you're a fan of Garth Ennis, nothing in here is going to shock you. There's his trademark irreverence and ultra-violence. And there's some cracks at mainstream superheroes that swing wildly back and forth across the spectrum between from clever satire and 3rd-grade potty humor. (Literally. Someone pees on someone else in the comic.)

It's about a prostitute with superpowers and it's amazing.

Αγορασμένο πριν κάμποσους μήνες με κάτι λιγότερο από ενάμισι ευρώ, το "The Pro." είναι ένα αρκετά διασκεδαστικό και βρώμικο μικρό κόμικ, με μια ιστορία με σούπερ ήρωες, εντελώς διαφορετική από αυτές που έχουμε συνηθίσει. Μια βρωμόστομη πόρνη με μωρό, αποκτά από το πουθενά υπερδυνάμεις και γίνεται μέλος μιας ομάδας σούπερ ηρώων ονόματι Λεγεώνα της Τιμής. Το κόμικ απευθύνεται φυσικά σε μεγαλύτερες ηλικίες και όχι σε παιδάκια, μιας και υπάρχει μπόλικο βρισίδι και αρκετές βρώμικες σκ

I was sitting in the library earlier, and this was just what I needed to brighten up my mood.

You could say it 'blew' my mind.

Superpowers come in all forms.
This is funny as shit. A completely stand alone comic for the person who wants superheroes and laugh their asses off. A super powered hooker joins a team of heroes, what more do you need to want to read this?
Think about that, what the hell could she do for these guys? Some serious stress relief maybe. Can she lift buildings with her cooch? Why did she have to become a hooker? She could have been a super pole dancer or maybe even the highest paid escort, but a stree

A prostitute gains super powers and joins a group of superheroes. A comic for anyone that feels superheroes--people parading in tights--take themselves too seriously (also for anyone that's not easily offended, like Larry Flynt). All the sexual humor, the profanity, the nudity, and the violence makes for a fun and surprising book. The strong statements about vigilantism and being holier- than-thou are overshadowed by the crassness, though, so even the protagonist and thematic points fall short o ...more

Pulled in by the art style.
But disappointed with the crude and gross humor.
Not my cup of tea.

Confession time: I decided to give this one a shot when I flipped it open and saw the scene of our seedy prostitute-turned-superhero giving a blowjob to a Superman proxy. Just as he is about to cum, he tells her to move her head, and he shoots his wad through a brick wall and high into the sky where it shears the wing off a passing jet. I thought that was hysterical – which may not say great things about me – and I brought the book up to the register right away.

What I admired in that scene was t

A back-alley prostitute gets zapped into superpowerdom by a voyeuristic alien and drafted by the Ennis version of the Avengers or Justice League or whatever; it's comprised of The Saint (Superman), The Lady (Wonder Woman), the appropriately-clad Speedo (Flash), The Knight and The Squire (Batman and Robin), and Lime (Green Lantern). And now, The Pro.

She swears and smokes, has rashes, pops out of her spandex and maims bad guys and basically upsets everyone's delicate sensibilities. Like when she

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
