Jackson Free Press on DESOLATION JONES

February 17th, 2005 | admin

William Patrick Butler at the Jackson Free Press covers DESOLATION JONES:

So, what is “Desolation Jones” all about? You probably can’t say it better than Ellis himself:

“‘Desolation Jones’ bears a ‘Mature Readers’ advisory, which means, in the world of comics, that it is Not For Children because it contains such elements as Satanic Language, Marijuana Use, A Bit of The Old Ultra-Violence, and Hitler’s Porn.”

Yes. He’s not lying. There is indeed Hitler Porn in the first issue. We never see it, but it is the catalyst that starts the story moving. The Hitler Porn, made and occasionally acted in by Hitler himself, has been stolen, you see? It must be found. It’s considered priceless to true connoisseurs in the porn community. To find this prize, the owner turns to Desolation Jones…

…a tight script filled with Ellis’ trademarked wit and brutal detail of non-sanitized ultra-violence, “Desolation Jones” is a comic to watch.
