Jennifer Blood 6 (November 2011)

Ennis’s time on Jennifer Blood does not end well. Not well at all. He doesn’t just not bring back the diary, like he promised, but he also totally changes the narrative approach. This issue, for the most part, is a monologue from Jennifer Blood. There’s a little with the neighbor, which ends poorly as well. […]

Jennifer Blood 5 (October 2011)

Kewber Baal takes over on art. They should have just gone with a different artist each issue. It would have, hopefully, encouraged Ennis to give each issue a specific tone. Instead of what he does now… regurgitating each previous issue with less effort. This issue gives the reader Jennifer Blood’s backstory, which includes the revelation […]

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.

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 […]

Jennifer Blood 2 (March 2011)

Ennis is still being a little coy about Jennifer Blood’s backstory–she’s not really a vigilante, she’s out for revenge against her crime lord uncles. She’s killing one an issue, which means things either need to complicate soon or it’s going to get boring. It seems, from this issue, the complication might come from Jennifer’s new […]

Jennifer Blood 1 (February 2011)

Is Garth Ennis trying to make some Hollywood money? Jennifer Blood seems perfect for a movie or, better yet, an FX series. A suburban super-mom is secretly The Punisher. “Weeds” with guns instead of pot. Ennis has written strong female characters in the past–sometimes exaggerating them to ludicrous extremes–but I think Blood is his first […]
