This past Saturday Nerd Farm posted “Try The Pro if You Like Hookers and Blow,” a review of the Garth Ennis TPB (that’s trade paperback for those of you who are not hip to comic book lingo) The Pro (which is apparently enjoying a healthy run as its on its sixth reprint). This review looked like something I simply had to read ’cause what guy in Las Vegas doesn’t like hookers and blow?
According to Nerd Farm Blog, The Pro is about Lunar Lass, a “foul mouthed street walking prostitute” who gets super powers from an alien known as The Viewer and is then thrust into the world of superherodom when recruited by a group of your run-of-the-mill superheroes, The League. Here’s an excerpt from the Nerd Farm Blog review that really grabbed my attention:
“Only Garth Ennis could make even Bob Saget blush with the amount of crude humor that’s in this book… You’re not going to get many books with golden showers, a gauntlet of rear defilement, unforgiving language, and super hero ejaculate taking down a commercial airliner.” –NerdFarmBlog.com
You read that right… golden showers and super hero ejaculate taking down a commercial airliner… Holy shit! If only this were made into an animated–wait, what?!? It was?!?
That’s right fellow insomniacs, Jimmy Palmiotti, the story’s tracer–I mean inker, apparently has a production company, Kickstart Productions Inc., that hired the same kick-ass animation studio that brought the world such animated masterpieces as Metalocalypse and The Venture Bros., Titmouse Inc., and they created a glorious video that seems to be a pitch for a series. Enjoy, but be warned!!! This video is pretty hardcore.
