Jennifer Blood 4 (September 2011)

Marz takes over Jennifer Blood and the results are disastrous.

He’s incapable of drawing human anatomy (everyone’s way too tall) and it kills anything the issue has going for it. Ennis introduces the Ninjettes this issue; they’re teenage hit girls so already he’s being somewhat derivative of Kick-Ass, which is sad. I don’t want to read derivative Ennis.

He spends a lot of time on them, maybe because Jennifer has so little going on this issue. He’s even cutting back on her first person narration and, with that reduction, Blood becomes more interesting to examine than to read. Maybe Ennis was contracted for an original property to Dynamite. I hope we get more Battlefields out of it.

The ending does come alive, a teensy bit, with the pervert, Nazi-looking neighbor. Had Ennis kept Blood in suburbia, it might have worked better because his revenge plot is dreadfully uninspired.
