Review: Marjorie Finnegan Temporal Criminal #1

Marjorie Finnegan: Temporal Criminal #1

Garth Ennis teams up with his A Walk Through Hell artist Goran Sudzuka and colorist Miroslav Mrva to tell a cheeky, breezy cop vs criminal time travel story in Marjorie Finnegan: Temporal Criminal #1. Ennis uses a simple dual protagonist setup in this first issue. Marjorie uses her time travel tech to steal treasures from the past and generally have a good time using her “Unfucker” to avoid any anomalies or angry fanboys who spend every spare moment watching “Cinema Sins” and bitching and moaning about “plot holes” in the Back to the Future films. She enjoys David Bowie records and has a human head named Tim to do all the tech stuff. On the other hand, there’s Harri, who is your typical time cop and trying to make sure that no one is having fun in the time stream.

Misogynistic dialogue, mysterious guys being creepy to Marjorie, and some cultural insensitivity aside, Marjorie Finnegan is really toned down for an Ennis comic, especially in the violence department. (A lone Viking taking a point blank machine gun shot to the chest aside.) He and Sudzuka lean into the novelty of people having modern weapons in the past and live off Marjorie pumping Rameses’ soldiers full of shotgun shells and another rogue time traveler named Otto protecting some unnamed European coast from Vikings. Goran Sudzuka and Miroslav Mrva’s art is easy to follow with fun touches like shell casings, severed limbs in silhouette, and choreographed dance moves. Everyone is generally having a good time.

Much of the humor in Marjorie Finnegan: Temporal Criminal comes from Garth Ennis poking fun at the seriousness and logic (Or lack of logic) in time travel stories and dropping funny captions for each person that Harri and Marjorie kill with the fate they avoided. It’s a toss up if being perforated by bullets that make you look like a cheese grater, or autoerotic asphyxiation is a worse way to go out. The whole time travel thing is just an opportunity for Sudzuka to draw fun action sequences in interesting locales, or Ennis to indulge his love of history and go into great detail about the burial rituals of Egyptian pharaohs. (But in any time period, David Bowie and cold pizza are always cool.) They can do Doctor Who with more sex and violence and about the same amount of dancing while setting up Marjorie and Harri as the proverbial immovable object and unstoppable force with the final page hinting at the true nature of their conflict in future issues.

He’s already done Preacher, Hitman, a definitive Punisher run, and hopefully he’s rolling in The Boys money so Garth Ennis really has nothing to prove to anyone any more. Marjorie Finnegan: Temporal Criminal #1 is living proof of that and is the comic book equivalent of a fast food meal. But, one of the classier places like Cook Out, In-N-Out, or Skyline Chili thanks to the energy of Goran Sudzuka’s art and the brightness of Miroslav Mrva’s color palette. Marjorie Finnegan is an action-comedy with better shootouts than one-liners and hopefully, future issues find that balance.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Heroes Reborn #1

Wednesdays (and now Tuesdays) are new comic book day! Each week hundreds of comics are released, and that can be pretty daunting to go over and choose what to buy. That’s where we come in

Each week our contributors choose what they can’t wait to read this week or just sounds interesting. In other words, this is what we’re looking forward to and think you should be taking a look at!

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this week.

Batman #108 (DC Comics) – Batman’s undercover to discover what’s up with the new group in town while things are in motion elsewhere bringing together the future Gotham we witnessed in Future State.

Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point #2 (DC Comics) – The first issue leaned more heavily to fans of Fortnite so we’re intrigued to see if the second issue is more friendly to people new to Fortnite.

Becstar #1 (Mad Cave Studios) – A star-hopping mercenary-gone-full time-gambler. Yeah, that kind of sounds awesome.

Broken Souls Ballad #1 (Scout Comics/Black Caravan) – Saint Abigail’s Institute creates monsters – and those monsters are teenagers! The teens discover they have abilities tied to their psychosomatic conditions.

ENIAC #3 (Bad Idea) – The two issues so far have been entertaining with a nice mix of alternate history and action. We’re hoping for more of the same in this tech-thriller.

Eve #1 (BOOM! Studios) – Eve wakes up to a world she wasn’t traiend to live in, a future dystopian America.

The Good Asian #1 (Image Comics) – Following Edison Hark-a haunted, self-loathing Chinese-American detective-on the trail of a killer in 1936 Chinatown. Yeah, we’re in.

Green Lantern #2 (DC Comics) – The first issue was a bit choppy but our new favorite Green Lantern Jo (from Far Sector) debuts in this issue and we’re excited!

Heroes Reborn #1 (Marvel) – It shares a name with that other event but isn’t related. A new world where the Avengers never happened and only Blade remembers… yeah, we want to check this out.

Marjorie Finnegan: Temporal Criminal #1 (AWA Studios) – Garth Ennis writing a new series. That alone has this comic on the list.

Nocterra #3 (Image Comics) – A world of darkness and an amazing new villain. Nocterra is so well thought out at so many details.

The Secret to Superhuman Strength (Mariner Books) – Alison Bechdel goes over her fascination with fitness crazes.

Star Wars: War of the Bounty Hunters Alpha #1 (Marvel) – It’s a major crossover event in the Star Wars universe as bounty hunters are all after the same bounty… Han Solo frozen in carbonite!

Suicide Squad #3 (DC Comics) – The first two issues have been full of action with some interesting personalities. Add in a body count that’s already high, and we can’t wait to see what’s next.

Whalesville x Rocks and Minerals (Bad Idea) – The comic sounds like it’s more geared towards all ages and with a new format for Bad Idea, we want to see what they have in store for fans.

Redemption #3

(W) Christa Faust (A/CA) Mike Deodato
In Shops: Apr 14, 2021
SRP: $3.99

The dusty desert town of Redemption survived the apocalypse but is hanging on by a thread. A despot rules the town
with an iron fist and controls its most precious resource: water. When that strongman marks her mother for death, young Rose Obregon ventures into the perilous wasteland to seek the help of the legendary gunslinger Cat Tanner, only to discover that the so-called “Butcher” is long retired, living in solitude, far from what’s left of the world, and preferring to keep it that way. When Rose arrives on Tanner’s doorstep, with gunmen hot on her trail, the Butcher has a choice to make: sit on the sidelines or pick up her guns and do what she does best?
