Hallelujah! Hitman is Back!

Originally uploaded by Heidi Meeley.
I am sitting here rejoicing with all my heart. Hitman is back with Garth Ennis and John McCrea helming the madness. I have been missing Tommy Monaghan and his cronies, so this is fantastic news.

Newsarama has the skinny:

"Been far, far too long since Tommy Monaghan's been seen around the DC Universe.

That's due to change later this year. DC's holding details close to the vest right now, but as was announced this weekend in Bristol, yes, Garth Ennis and John McCrea will re-team for a Hitman story. While Ennis himself has said that he and McCrea were working on a "lost" story where Monaghan meets the JLA for an arc of JLA: Classified, plans change. DC has confirmed that Ennis and McCrea's project will indeed be a three issue miniseries, Hitman/JLA, and will debut sometime after August.

Reportedly, if the miniseries does well, it may be enough to get DC to bring the Hitman trades back into print, and possibly complete the collection."

This is excellent news for sure! Any Hitman fans out there?

HOLY @#$%!!! Just one of the biggest of all time! I got all the books, appearances, specials and would have bought the action figure, lunch box and Christmas ornament if they had made one! I got like the first appearance and the first 10 issues signed by Ennis! This is great news! I would have done Tommy as one of my costumes but I figured no one outside of Tommy's Heroes would have know who he was. I can't wait!!!

Right here! This is good news indeed.

Yeah! And since I got out of comics (by financial force) before the series ended, I'd love to "complete the story"!

Carl, I would love to see you as Tommy! I think it would be a kickass outfit for you!

I am glad to see you were thrilled as well. I can't wait to see me some new Hitman. It is about damn time!

Heidi Meeley said...

Johnny B- amen, my brother. This is outstanding news! I love the fact that Ennis and McCrea are back doing this.

Heidi Meeley said...

Siskoid, I am glad to see you will be able to finish up the story being told! DC has been needing to do this for awhile. Yay!

Two words: Awe. Some.

I hadn't heard about this yet. Thanks for posting the good news!
