Pros: Unapologetically offensive fun.
Cons: Not for the faint of heart.
Garth Ennis excels at comics that are sick, twisted, and brilliant. His assualt on things right and good in the comic medium has included sex toys made of meat (Preacher), super-hero orgies (The Boys), and a guy who welds dogs to people (Hitman). It was really just a matter of time before he wrote a comic about a super-powered prostitute.
The Pro is the story of a single mom who's a Denny's waitress by day and prostitute by night. Unbeknownst to her, she is being watched by an alien known as The Voyeur--I mean Viewer--who believes that all humans have the potential to become heroes. In order to settle a bet with his robot buddy, The Viewer gives our heroine super-powers and she becomes The Pro.
The Pro is immediately inducted into the League of Honor, a Justice League parody that gives Ennis a chance to vent many of his issues with the super-hero genre. Of course, The Pro is a little "rough around the edges," and it isn't long before her anctics put her in danger of being kicked out of the League. Before she can be formerly booted, however, the League is called to stop a terrorist attack, giving her one last chance to redeem herself.
The Pro is not a subtle comic book. The gags in the book are gratuitious, vile, and indecent. Fortunately, that's the kind of thing that Ennis writes very well, making for an absolutley hilarious book. Amanda Connor's artwork is the perfect blend of traditional super-heroism and lovingly rendered sleaze. It all ads up to very funny (if occasionally disgusting) book that's got everything you could ask for (except horsies).
