Here we are folks. The final stretch. This is the last Hitman storyline: Closing Time.

I think #2 died, but the archive should work just as well.
Who's all here? Anyone been reading since I started?
Hey look it's Scully
It can't be him since he died in 1982, but the most well known "Rudi" of Nazi Germany was Hans-Ulrich Rudel, who was the most decorated soldier of the reich (they even had to come up with brand new decorations for his successes!), and the most successful divebomber aircraft pilot on human history.
That, and since he was a pilot, I doubt he would be having nightmares about T34s like he did in one of the previous Hitman books.
*fistbumps through the tears
Oh, I'm almost always posting with this one.
I finally got around to playing the last two DLCs about a month ago after two years of barely playing it at all. Old World Blues was awesome, but seriously FUCK the Deathclaws in Lonesome Road.
I had it for 360. I put 20 dollars on my microsoft account so I could buy the dlcs because I couldn't find the GOTY edition and my x-box fucked up and I couldn't get my account for half a year and now it won't even let me purchase things because console's a shit.
That's JLA/Hitman, a two-parter that comes after the series finishes. That'll actually have its own thread after this one.
See, the only problem I have with Ennis, is that he is recycling ideas way too much.
Hitman, Punisher, and The Boys all shared a LOT of same storylines / concepts, and other thoughts of the writer echoing through. The whole "you keep sticking to the old even if it causes problems" thing appeared in all three of the above. Government mooks trying to control supers, again appeared in all three. Superpeople being complete idiots, again. Bob Mitchell and the CIA redhead appeared in both Hitman and Punisher Max. And I'm fairly sure that Eddie Baker (the SAS dude in Hitman) was a prototype of Butcher from The Boys.
And also, the Boys had a section where a guy was day dreaming about using his personal flaw to save the planet from an asteroid. In that case it was a batman parody who had an urge to fuck everything, and he imagined getting shot up to fuck an asteroid so it orgasms so hard that it explodes, saving Earth from destruction. In reality he had a brain tumor and just imagined it, after getting knocked out by debris while saving a lady.
And Natts family here looks like M.M.'s from The Boys - father and mother look similar, and so does Natt for MM.
Also, the whole "evil people fucking up the world" echoed through a lot in Punisher, Hitman, The Boys, and also in Crossed - subverted there, when the Fatal Englishmen were talking to that preacher man.
Thanks for reading everyone!
Unfortunately JLA Hitman wouldn't be able to fit in this thread by a good fifteen pages. So that'll have its own in a bit.
Fuck, I just read this for the first time the other day. Fuck.
If you're sufficiently recovered from that finale, we have one more tale to tell.
that ending, man.
Gonna get some beer tomorrow, drink one for the boys.
ya done good, man. wiping the tears outta my eyes as I post this.
I never got around to reading these the last time they were storytimed. I knew how it ended but I had to see for myself.
I don't know but I think I wish I hadn't
thanks for the storytime
they never explained natt's hat though knowing ennis some character would ask him if it was the gift of someone important or some shit and we would say it's just a hat he likes
Somedays you read a comic that is so bad it makes you confident you can one day make one yourself.
Much rarer is the comic you read that makes you want to strive for even a modicum of its greatness. This is the latter. This is what comics should be like.
