In the latter half of the 1980’s, it became clear that comics weren’t just for kids. Thanks in huge part to the extraordinary mainstream success of Alan Moore’s Watchmen, publishers were more aware than ever of the vast potential of comics for older readers. The big two both had their own homes for these more mature comics, Epic at Marvel and DC’s Vertigo.

On a number of occasions, Mark Millar has been referred to as “the poor man’s Garth Ennis” – which I don’t think is entirely fair. But this is one of his edgier stories. Nemesis raises the question; what if Batman was evil?

Garth Ennis tackles Nick Fury! And if you’ve read any of his work before, especially his run on The Punisher, you probably know what to expect. But that doesn’t make it any less impressive when Nick Fury strangles a man with their own intestines.

‘Venom’ made a ton of money, and I can’t figure out why. It’s ugly, boring, and adds nothing of value to the superhero genre.
Here’s my review, as I unpick the negatives and positives (as few and far between as they are) and explain why you should forget ‘Venom’ and give ‘Upgrade’ a shot.

Garth Ennis turns his caustic sense of humour towards the Ghost Rider, Johnny Blaze. It has everything you’d except. Hunour bordering on the obscene, disgusting characters, morally dubious heroes, and an acerbic take on organised religion. It also has some of the nicest looking art I’ve ever seen.
