5.0 out of 5 stars an amazing comic that everyone should own 5 Oct 2001
By A Customer
Hitman is,well, about a Hitman. When young Tommy finds himself being given superpowers (in a way so perverted that you'll have to read the thing to find out) he doesn't do anything stupid like wear his underpants on top of his jeans or don a cape. No, instead he uses his telepathy and x-ray vision to do what anyone of us would do - to make life easier, to cheat at cards and of course to see women naked. Oh yes, and to kill his victims easier. We all know that power corrupts, but what happens when the person is already corrupted? Tommy is a hitman. He kills people with his guns and isnt about to start a new career just because he has superpowers. It's as simple as that. Or at least it should. This is a Garth Ennis creation and nothing is simple in his world. Thus our new 'super-assassin' finds himself up against demons, freaks, gang bosses, ninjas and a certain superhero called 'Batman' (who ends up covered in Tommy's vomit.
Funny, clever and far too warped to be good for you, Hitman is one comic that everyone should read. You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll realise how much of an idiot Batman truly is. A very cool comic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buckets full of fun 15 July 2001
By A Customer
People who are looking for a second Preacher, this is not it. This book (which collects Hitman #1-3, Demon annual #2 and Batman Chronicles #4) is the first collection of a far more uncomplicated title, but therefore not any less fun, and the writing-style of Ennis is very recognizable here (and that's a good thing). Uncomplicated humurous (great oneliners) action, that's the best way to describe it. Tommy Monaghan is a Hitman with a conscience (who works in Gotham) who is blessed with powers like X-ray vision, telepathy and a incredibly high skill-level. Powers he likes to "abuse" in his interaction with other people, which makes for some hilarious scenes (btw, don't be fooled by him having powers because this is definately NOT a superhero title). He is different from your regular Hitman in the fact that he only takes on contracts to assassinate meta-humans, no 'regular Joe's'. AND he must see a reason for the killing, he won't kill people who he doesn't see as 'the bad guys.' A group of demons from Hell who call themselves the 'Arkanonne' want to recruit him to be their representative on earth and send out an agent to go get him. Then Tommy gets hired to kill the Joker and he can make a million bucks with it, but he'd have to go into Arkham Asylum to do so. Meanwhile Batman is keeping an eye on the case (because he is naturally interested in everything that involves the Joker) which turns out to be something a little different from what Tommy had first expected it to be.
Like I said, this book is not as complicated as Preacher was. It doesn't really have a continuity where you have to know everything that has gone before to know what's it's about.

HITMAN, i often heard about the title, but never really felt the need to pick it up. But after Preacher finished it's GREAT run, i felt empty. I am a big comic-reader so there is always something for me to read, but i wanted something a bit more adult like. Something with a bit more violence, but also with good humour. Suddenly i remembered this title. HITMAN, by Garth Ennis, the fantastic writer of Preacher and Punisher. I thought i'd try this one out, and now i'm hooked. Hitman is perfect for people who want violence, but not as graphic as in Preacher, and people who like black humour. Well this book is full of both. It starts with Hitman's first appearance in the DCU, and you really get to know him in those few issues this book contains. I can really recommend this book for everyone who loves violence and humour, this book probably will make you laugh out loud. Hitman is the first person ever, who throws up over BATMAN. But be warned, once you've read this book, you'll probably want more!!! just like i did.
