In this day and age, after nearly 100 years of comic stories, it's hard to find something new and fresh that hasn't already been done. Enter The Pro. Even by modern standards, The Pro is darn near pornographic. Not quite, but it gets close in it's imagery. And the swearing? Hooo boy. That being said, The Pro is funny nearly from start to finish. And throw in a scene that literally made tears well up, and I'd say we've hit gold. I really don't know what else to say, except that if you don't mind some cursing and shock and awe, then you MUST give this a try. It's the birth of perhaps the most unorthodox heroine ever drawn. (And brilliantly so by Amanda Connor.) And Garth Ennis, well, whatever else you say about him, he knows how to tell a fresh tale with masterful writing. So if you aren't easily offended, then give this a try, and I don't think you'll be disappointed.
Thanks so much for your time folks. Sincerely, R.A. McDowell
