Written by Garth Ennis, whose comics have been adapted into the AMC TV series Preacher and the upcoming Amazon TV series The Boys, Hitman is an action-packed, often funny series starring Tommy Monaghan, a super-powered gun for hire with a heart of gold.
His name is Tommy Monaghan, and he kills people for a living--but then again, nobody's perfect. In fact, for a hired killer, Tommy's actually a pretty decent guy.
Tommy is good enough at his job that he can pick and choose his contracts and for those that he accepts he follows a strict bad-guys-only policy. Fortunately for him, there's no shortage of lowlifes who fit his criteria in Gotham City's seedy underworld; unfortunately for them, he also has some helpful superpowers--X-ray vision and telepathy--that give him an edge over nearly any opponent, from the lowest street thug to the deadliest super-villain.
Of course, the flashier heroes of the DC Universe take a dim view of Tommy's vocational success. But in the tenements and taverns of Gotham's notorious Cauldron district, honor and friendship are more important than moral righteousness--and professional rivalries are a much bigger threat than the forces of law and order. For Tommy and his crew down at Noonan's Bar, dealing with it all--the capes, the gangsters, the mad scientists, and their mutated victims--is just another day at the office.
Lovingly crafted by acclaimed comics writer Garth Ennis (Preacher
) and beloved artist John McCrea (The Demon
), Hitman's Greatest Hits collects over 300 pages of gunslinging adventures from Gotham's second favorite local hero--including the classic tales "Ten Thousand Bullets," "Zombie Night at the Gotham Aquarium," and "Of Thee I Sing."
