an amazing comic that everyone should own
on 5 October 2001
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.
