Format: Hardcover
I've been a fan of Pat Mills for a while now, and i would liked to think that I was familiar now with his witty, satire and politics laden writing. However, nothing would prepare me for the shock (or should that be Shocc?) I received when I read Marshal Law for the first time. It was like nothing I had read before; sure the deconstruction of the super hero in comics had been tackled before, the most notable example being Alan Moore's Watchmen, but Marshal Law was a whole different beast altogether. Where Moore showed sympathy for his characters, Mills tore into them with devilish glee.

The story is set in 2020 after a war in The Zone or South America, (an allegory for Vietnam) in which super-humans were created and used. Our protagonist Marshal Law rounds up and brings the super-humans who violate the law in San Futuro (a post big quake San Francisco) to justice. It is a city that worships superheroes. The book is a critical look on the complacency and apathy of society as a whole, demonstrating the idiocy of celebrity worship, and a world in which the corrupt politicians and the rich dictate our lives. And the superheros in particular bear the brunt of Marshal Law, who has a clear disdain for them...

The artwork by Kevin O'Neill is rendered with such wit, style and all round awesomeness that only a handful in the comics industry can match. Yes it's that good. His panels are saturated with so much richness and detail, full of witty lines whether as graffiti art on the walls or on the superheroes costumes themselves.

This beautiful hardcover deluxe edition collects all the Marshal Law series and one offs except for the crossovers.

I first read the Marchal Law books and Toxic! magazine when I was a a greasy haired teenage grotbag so this collection brought back a lot of memories. In this new golden age of superheroes (on the silver screen at least), Marshal Law feel just as fresh as it did 20 years ago as it deconstructs comic book obsessions with meaty muscle men in tights and lusty leotraded ladies with giant boobs and tiny waists.
Kenin O Neill's artwork is as in-your-face as ever and Pat Mills proves once again why he is (in my humble opinion) the godfather of British comics.
It's funny, it's crude but it's a lot of fun. Highly recommended.

a few year ago i have waited for a top shelf edition to substitute my epic-marvel and dark horse marshall law collection, now there it is the book with quite all the marshall s material - except the image comics with the mask and pinhead story ( that i ve never seen) , and the novellas of origins -

We should not forget when marshall law appears quite 20 years ago, superheroes comics were a wasteland - rob liefeld, jim lee , mc farlane , only crappy artist with crappy multicover editions- until marvel s bankcrupcy-
britons giving a kick to US comics

kevin s art improved since Nemesis and was at the peak of his power - check the other masterpiece METALOZOIC -

please buy this book or die stupid

have these in original 'pamphlet' form, but now collected in coffee table book, would recommend to any one that doesn't mind fun (or guns) been poked at super-heroes by a violent hero hating cop, read the story then check all the detail in the backgrounds.

Wow!! This really is a fantastic collected edition, looks great and this what a good HC really should be. Certainly sweeter if you nabbed it for 10 quid too. Marshal Law has certainly been about, bouncing around various published. So I was very suprised to see he's now under the DC banner and boy they did a great service to a character who probably isn't a house-hold name.

We get an introduction from Jonathon Ross and then a nice map of San Futuro (which may be new material?)before we get to the real fun stuff.

Begin with the prologue followed by the original 6 parter, takes manhattan, kingdom of the blind, the hateful dead, super babylon and the secret tribunal. Finished of by an afterword by pat mills and a pin up gallery. It seriously puts a lot of other HC's to shame for content alone.

If you are a fan then this is a must. The casual fan looking for something different should take a punt on this just as long as you don't get offended by some of the material. Kev O' Neill may not be everyone's cup of tea but he certainly is one of the greatest artists of his generation. Over the top violence, satire and hatred of superhero's has never been so much fun. I could be wrong but the HC (not the dust jacket) may also feature a new front and back cover. If you don't know by now....I'm seriously happy with this!!
