When writing about a subject that interests him, you can tell a marked difference in the style of Garth Ennis' comics. Less toilet humour and shocking things for the sake of being shocking, for example. As such a lot of his books based on military history tend to be a lot less "Ennis" than, say, his superhero work.

More horrifying than Mignola! More messed up than Junji Ito! More Perverse than a Mark Millar deconstructionist superhero comic! More lacking in its basic understanding of medical law than that one Veronica Mars episode!
One of the two worst comics I've ever read )

Oh, JMS.

"A one-off issue, just about anybody can do that. To have a four-to-six-issue series, you're better off than a one-shot. A one-shot shows you have a short attention span." - J. Michael Straczynski

Okay, now THIS is a series I've been looking forward to; Christy Marx, story editor and main writer on Jem, as well as writer of Sisterhood of Steel, taking on a long standing DC license which was criminally underexpoited at the time, and ever since.

Amethyst, Princess of Gemworld

NB - I feel I should mention that there is an attempted gang-rape of a character in the first issue. I don't feature scans of it, but it has shown up in the discussion thread already, so I'd rather mention it above the cut than have anyone who might find it triggering come across the discussion unawares.

Does it live up to expectation? )
