    This is what happens when you blind buy a book by an author whose previous works you've (mostly) enjoyed (Garth Ennis): you end up with a boring TPB full of pubescent humour which is desperately trying to be controversial. To make it worse, the entire comic is written in a kind of phonetic Irish English, which makes reading it even more laborious. Oh well, you live and learn.

    I enjoyed this book. It's exactly what you can expect from the title: fart jokes, penis jokes and more swearing than anyone can handle. Still, I can't remember the last time I laughed uncontrollably, so I can't help giving it the maximum rating. The story is weak, the artwork is mediocre, but the dialogue is laugh-out-loud funny and more than makes up for the first two. The author does a great job of suggesting dialects and speech defects via odd and almost unintelligible spelling. You have an o I enjoyed this book.

The author does a great job of suggesting dialects and speech defects via odd and almost unintelligible spelling. You have an odd mix of... stuff, from forced marriages, to drug dealing, to selling moonshine, to resurrections from the grave. It's a constantly-moving, violent and vulgar mess that doesn't get dull. There is the Ennis feel to the whole thing, but it's obviously raw and greatly inferior to his popular series. It's nice to see where he evolved from, though.

    I'm absolutely loving Ennis' and McCrea's current return to Section Eight, the superteam whose members include Dogwelder (he welds dogs to his enemies) and Bueno Excellente (who fights crime through the power of perversion). I even quite enjoyed the second volume of this. All of which I clarify to establish that I'm not a complete stick-in-the-mud before saying: this is really poor. It reminds me of all those sub-Viz rags called things like Zit! which clogged shelves for a year or two, never not I'm absolutely loving Ennis' and McCrea's current return to Section Eight, the superteam whose members include Dogwelder (he welds dogs to his enemies) and Bueno Excellente (who fights crime through the power of perversion).

It reminds me of all those sub-Viz rags called things like Zit! which clogged shelves for a year or two, never noticing that Viz had smarts behind all the turds and testicles. I'm sure the creators had enormous fun producing this; alas, I had a lot less reading it.

    Irreverent, disgusting but amusing nonetheless. Underdog life in Belfast (I hope not). The artwork is inspired by Basil Wolverton for sure. Nothing sacred, no one spared.

    McCrea drew this in his underground-style-mode and Ennis let himself loose with all the very black humor he could find from the gutter. And I enjoyed.

    Per carità, di ridere si ride. Ma più che altro ci si stupisce dell'assoluta "mancanza di tatto" di questo fumetto sguaiato fino al midollo. La storia è un lurido pretesto per precipitare il lettore in situazioni paradossali e lercie. I personaggi muoiono o vengono mutilati senza pause, i protagonisti sono due poveri cristi al limite dell'idiozia. E poi ci sono i contenuti speciali, come "Trio, la troia schifosa". Su quelli un bel no comment ci starebbe benissimo. Per carità, di ridere si ride. Ma più che altro ci si stupisce dell'assoluta "mancanza di tatto" di questo fumetto sguaiato fino al midollo.

    DNF at 10%. It's pretty unusual that I DNF a comics, even more that I DNF any book after so few pages but honestly it really was not for me. I felt the art was ugly as hell, and the story really did not interest me. I basically had to force myself to read the dozen pages I did. I tried to see if the rest was better but nope, it was not.

    Foul-mouthed, cynical, obscene, profane, scatological, disgusting, and generally guaranteed to offend anyone of a sensitive disposition. I loved it.

    Garth Ennis is no stranger to controversy,the man behind PREACHER/Hitman/Crossed/Wormwood & many other adult & to some overly "offensive" books worth checking out.While PREACHER,his most famous/infamous series had alot of dark humour in it & is considered one of the best graphic novel series it also was filled to the rafters with political.& anti organised religion(in that case the Catholic Church)content.Here there is none of that but it's all the funnier for it in my mind.This is "adult" humou Garth Ennis is no stranger to controversy,the man behind PREACHER/Hitman/Crossed/Wormwood & many other adult & to some overly "offensive" books worth checking out.While PREACHER,his most famous/infamous series had alot of dark humour in it & is considered one of the best graphic novel series it also was filled to the rafters with political.& anti organised religion(in that case the Catholic Church)content.Here there is none of that but it's all the funnier for it in my mind.This is "adult" humour at it's most crude & outragous & the the 2 main protaganists are loveable bums who you can't help but root for.The story contains some of the zaniest supernatural content I've ever seen(an alien who cones to earth in a toilet spaceship anybody?) & helps make it the classic it is.I know alot of people would have bought this off of Garth Enniss's name alone,I was one of them & I can see alot of people who done that thinking wheres the social commentary...THERE IS NONE & GARTH ENNIS HAS CREATED ONE OF HIS FUNNIEST & MOST ENDEARING BOOKS BECAUSE OF THAT.GR8 STUFF!

    This dark humor book about two dimwits trying to be detectives, is a new reprint of material dating back to 1992. I'd nitpick that the Scottish dialogue done with phonetic spelling makes for a much more difficult reading experience. I used to enjoy trying to decipher dialogue done that way back in my high school days, nowadays not so much.

    Note to self, stop buying all Garth Ennis books, he veers between great and garbage.

    Nowhere near as vile and immoral as it's made out to be, but still quite entertaining. Was rather put off by the cramped black and white style of the art though...
