About Author:

Garth Ennis Jacen Burrows

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 characters from Troubled Souls, Dougie and Ivor, who would later get their own American comics series, Dicks, from Caliber in 1997, and several follow ups from Avatar.Another series for Crisis was True Faith, a religious satire inspired by his schooldays, this time drawn by Warren Pleece Ennis shortly after began to write for Crisis parent publication, 2000 AD He quickly graduated on to the title s flagship character, Judge Dredd, taking over from original creator John Wagner for a period of several years Ennis first work on an American comic came in 1991 when he took over DC Comics s horror title Hellblazer, which he wrote until 1994, and for which he currently holds the title for most issues written Steve Dillon became the regular artist during the second half of Ennis s run Ennis landmark work to date is the 66 issue epic Preacher, which he co created with artist Steve Dillon Running from 1995 to 2000, it was a tale of a preacher with supernatural powers, searching literally for God who has abandoned his creation.While Preacher was running, Ennis began a series set in the DC universe called Hitman Despite being lower profile than Preacher, Hitman ran for 60 issues plus specials from 1996 to 2001, veering wildly from violent action to humour to an examination of male friendship under fire.Other comic projects Ennis wrote during this time period include Goddess, Bloody Mary, Unknown Soldier, and Pride Joy, all for DC Vertigo, as well as origin stories for The Darkness for Image Comics and Shadowman for Valiant Comics.After the end of Hitman, Ennis was lured to Marvel Comics with the promise from Editor in Chief Joe Quesada that he could write The Punisher as long as he cared to Instead of largely comical tone of these issues, he decided to make a much serious series, re launched under Marvel s MAX imprint.In 2001 he briefly returned to UK comics to write the epic Helter Skelter for Judge Dredd.Other comics Ennis has written include War Story with various artists for DC The Pro for Image Comics The Authority for Wildstorm Just a Pilgrim for Black Bull Press, and 303, Chronicles of Wormwood a six issue mini series about the Antichrist , and a western comic book, Streets of Glory for Avatar Press.In 2008 Ennis ended his five year run on Punisher MAX to debut a new Marvel title, War Is Hell The First Flight of the Phantom Eagle In June 2008, at Wizard World, Philadelphia, Ennis announced several new projects, including a metaseries of war comics called Battlefields from Dynamite made up of mini series including Night Witches, Dear Billy and Tankies, another Chronicles of Wormwood mini series and Crossed both at Avatar, a six issue miniseries about Butcher from The Boys and a Punisher project reuniting him with artist Steve Dillon subsequently specified to be a weekly mini series entitled Punisher War Zone, to be released concurrently with the film of the same name.Taken from enpedia wiki Garth_Ennis

Comments 303

  • Sam Quixote

    Garth Ennis does NOT like George W. Bush or his administration or seemingly America in general really and he basically uses 303 as his hate screed to show why. Our anti-hero is a grizzled Russian vet with an affinity for the classic .303 rifle whom Ennis drops into Afghanistan to show the effects of America’s (then-current) actions on the civilian population as well as highlighting what the Russians did historically. We’re then in the American heartland where Mexican slave labour is alive an [...]

    Il solito Ennis, ma questa volta con un paio di personaggi così dolenti da far male.Mentre però il protagonista giganteggia nella cupa violenza, lo sceriffo trascina il proprio dolore rinviando il suicidio ogni volta di quel tanto necessario a compiere un dovere in cui non crede più.C'è il solito attacco agli USA senza troppa retorica.Uno degli Ennis migliori, senza dubbio, splatter compreso.

  • Cem

    Being my all-time favorite writer in the graphic novel tradition after Alan Moore, Ennis is right in his element in this mini series. Ennis is well-known for his extreme, sarcastic and cynically witty style as displayed in books like Preacher, The Pro, The Boys etc. but to me, his true calling lies in war stories. The series Battlefields, the two volume War Stories and even the farcical Adventures of the Bollock Patrol demonstrate his strange and creepy fascination with war machinery, strategy, [...]

    Comics offer debate. It is necessary. Fundamental. I just don't understand why the medium is so completely left. Where's the middle ground? Hence, I guess, the debate.I'm NOT offering TO debate, by the way just WRITING that comics are a great medium FOR debate and should NEVER be censored!I'm just OFFERING my personal perspective. Something I rarely do.When I opened the book, the words where riveting. They were great! Then it was like this ugliness spread. This concept. Completely one sided and [...]

    3.5 StarsThis was deep. It was released only a few years after 9/11 and you could feel the emotion in it even if Ennis did take a different route in the story.The first half is set in Afghanistan and is a pretty straightforward war story. The second half really shifted gears and honestly the two halves of the story didn't mesh well. The second part also felt a little rushed. The ending was quite shocking and I'm surprised there wasn't more controversy about this one when it was released. The art [...]

  • Michael

    While I love Ennis, and the majority of his work, I'm not such a fan of his attitude that resembles, "Politics is politics, but soldiers get the work done" (my made up quote).

  • Paolo Antonio Livorati

    Un aereo USA precipita nelle montagne dell'Afghanistan. La segretezza paranoica delle operazioni di recupero insospettisce Russia e Gran Bretagna, che inviano una squadra speciale ciascuno per prededere gli americani e capire che cosa ci sia di tanto segreto. Scopertolo solo dopo un bagno di sangue, uno scafato colonnello russo inizia un viaggio lunghissimo per portare a termine una missione inimmaginabile e folle.Raccontare di russi e britannici in Afghanistan fa venire subito in mente il Grand [...]

  • Zedsdead

    The main character strongly echoes the Saint of Killers from the author's Preacher series, right down to his ghosts. They even look similar.I very much enjoyed the first half of the book; it was focused, gripping, and unpredictable, with interesting characters and amazing landscapes.In the second half, the plot lurches forward unsteadily; it feels like chapters were torn out in several places. Logic takes a back seat to expediency. The protagonist has an absurdly easy time accomplishing what he [...]

  • Bodicainking

    Not enough meat to be either a great story or a great polemic, the stand out segments of this work, the ones I still hear in my head, are the odes to the Lee Enfield rifle and the .303 British cartridge (in UK service 1889-1950)which Ennis, correctly in my opinion, lifts to a position of talisman and avatar of the forces of British imperialism, civilisation and values - it's the bullet that kept the world in the chokehold of a small wet island, saved the world from Nazism and stepped out of serv [...]

  • Nocheevo

    Occasionally Mr Ennis gets his stories right when he rains in some of his more "try hard edginess". In this case he almost gets there.Essentially a musing on a soldier's lot with the instant moment on the ground contrasting somewhat with the political motives. The 303 rifle of the story is used to link the current warrior to his Brothers in arms (to use the obvious) of the last 100 years.

  • Stuart Young

    Russian special forces officer takes on a personal mission of revenge and redemption. Plot takes a few strange turns and the political angle could perhaps have been a little more indepth but overall this is powerful stuff. Ennis's spare writing style and his love of all things military lends the tale a mythic quality.

  • Martin Ryder

    A very cold, hard look at the War on Terror and America's role in starting it. The ending is amazing and audacious and something you could only do in comics. And you have to keep in mind that this came out only 3 years after 9/11. It was pretty stunning at the time.

  • Robert

    A schizophrenic work. A promising first half with a great setting and an interesting protagonist is dragged down by an absurd jump in setting, a ridiculous change in tone, and an insultingly unbelievable ending.

  • Ming Siu

    This is one of the more thoughtful Garth Ennis works out there - you get the sense that he really does care about the issues discussed. However, it doesn't quite work as a story, which is really unfortunate.

  • Tyson Adams

    A very powerful comment on the war in the middle-east. This story pulls no punches and is very good.

  • Timo

    Too much talk, not enough story.

  • Feather Mista

    Raramente me decepciona Ennis, y cuando lo compro barato menos que menos. Veremos cuánto vale este 303
