Jennifer Blood 3 (May 2011)

If I wanted to give Marcos Marz the benefit of the doubt, I’d say his style is meant to resemble those shampoo advertisements in hair saloons. The eighties looking ones with the sparsely illustrated woman in sunglasses.

But I don’t think he’s going for that effect. I think he’s really just a bad artist and Dynamite lower the page rate even more on Jennifer Blood.

It’s hard to talk about the issue once Marz takes over. Batista’s not a good artist, but he’s not as astoundingly bad as Marz.

The switch coincides with Ennis’s interest waning. He’s reusing old Punisher MAX set pieces, the plot’s getting predictable and the big reveal is sounding a little weak.

If this comic weren’t from Garth Ennis, there’d be no reason to read it. But as an Ennis comic, it’s more just a peculiarity than anything.

I’m not even invested enough to be disappointed.
