I sat down and read the thing all the way through, stopping occasionally to show my friends the delightfully disgusting portraits of "Grandma", and to quote the evil hill-billies. After I was done, my friends insisted I leave the book there so that they might read it as well. Cheez, three fans created by one purchase, so far.
The comic is very well done. The amount of sheer, graphic violence and disturbing subject matter (especially the forced sodomy and beastiality) will make this story difficult for "sensitive" readers. Many parts of this book were hard for me to stomach, and I think they were meant to be funny. This is *not* a comic for anyone under the age of 18, I think - these scenes are enough for an adult to handle.
So, disturbing matter aside, this is a damn fine story. You will find yourself dreaming about the heroic Custer and his love, the very bad-@$$ Tulip, hoping that they make it. I understand that the storyline is currently winding to a close. This is almost a relief to me, as I know that I now have to start collecting the entire series - I won't be stuck in a never-ending cycle of collection! (Like it's not bad enough that I own a collection of bagged-n-boarded comics in the first place.Read more ›
This is a good thing. I am all about making the reader/listener/viewer uncomfortable and "Until The End of the World" is a master study of discomfort. This shows the genius of Ennis goes way beyond some routine physically gross torment of protagonist Jesse Custer. Ennis strips Custer of EVERYTHING! His father, his mother, his inbreed hillbilly mutant buddy and his childhood itself are all cast away. But even then Ennis gives us, and Jesse, another black hearted kick in the guts: His woman executed right before his eyes...with a shotgun!!! If your not already up to date on the whole series to this point then stop being lazy and start at the beginning!
This is NOT like some light viewing TV series you can drop in and out of on a whim to see what's up. This is a full scale pop art epic culminating in no less than the ouster of God Almighty himself.
And though nothing on that level of cosmic importance occurs in this particular collection, "Until the end of the World" is still something that can literally put a tear in my eye. The horrors of an abusive childhood put right and put there by Texas justice.
