  Mania: Garth Ennis Interview, April 18, 1997

Garth Ennis: I can't really put it in one sentence because although on one hand Preacher is about faith and yes it is also about, I suppose, the search for God, the search for faith and the manipulation and the abuse committed by figures in whom I suppose people have faith.
Garth Ennis: You know, I think I did originally have some sort of idea of maybe a Where Eagles Dare kind of mission against impossible odds, but it really sort of died before I had a chance to really go anywhere with it, and then just doing the book was out of the question.

Ennis: You saw him in bed with Tulip, but it was quite a sort of cold, disturbing kind of a scene.
Ennis: Well, Wonder Woman is a character I think I could probably do because I have a certain amount of respect, if not for the character, than for the idea behind her.
Ennis: I saw a photo of it and I thought ‘Oh God’, but it wasn’t until they actually sent me one of them that I realized the photo was just a terrible photo and that it’s actually rather a nice statue.

Ennis did a nifty job of dealing with the excess baggage crossovers often bring a writer(I'm talking about Bloodlines, which I heard was terrible).

but also echoes Ennis’ own perspective on the America he is writing about.  Where authenticity may falter in the Texan idiom he emulates, Ennis scan only succeed in balancing the scales through Cassidy. ; As a narrative construction Cassidy provides continuity between the world of men and God.
It is also the figure of Cassidy which enables Ennis’ to access and fully realise his status as an outsider writing within an American idiom.

 The Punisher Archive - Garth Ennis
Ennis openly admits he doesn't believe in God, and says he tackles religion in his stories for the same reason he includes violence--"because it entertains and fascinates me, not because it's part of my life." And while such an admission may seem controversial to some, it's merely a matter of fact for Ennis.
While Ennis has made several impassioned statements about his love of writing his own, creator-owned work and tendency to shy away from corporate comics, he still sticks to his story that he's writing The Punisher for the Marvel Knights line due to his friendship with line editors/founders Joe Quesada and Jimmy Palmiotti, nothing else.
While Ennis' love of the Punisher as well as his friendship with Jimmy and Joe got him on the title, he knew what had to be done as soon as he settled in.

 fictions: PROPAGANDA Reviews: The Boys by Garth Ennis
Ennis takes great delight in giving us not only his own twisted version of the JLA but he throws in the Teen Titans as well for good measure.

The Punisher, 37-42; written by Garth Ennis; illustrated by Leandro Fernandez; colored by Dan Brown; lettered by Randy Gentile; edited by Axel Alonso; published by Marvel Comics.
Ennis's Frank Castle is force of nature as much as he is a man and it seemed like Ennis, who's been gradually shedding humanity onto Castle through this whole series, had made him too human to take seriously anymore.
Whether or not Ennis recognized the change in Barracuda and corrected it or if the marked quality change in these two approaches is just a coincidence--also, whether or not he used some of his 303 research when writing Man of Stone, because much of it feels like a 303 take-off--I'm not going to presume.

 Garth Ennis War Stories v1 Review - Silver Bullet Comics
These comics influenced Ennis's youth mightily; this trade collects four of his Commando-esque tales in one neat volume, the essential differences being colour and the Ennis trademarks of sex, violence and profanity.
Ennis is known for his humour too, which is mostly missing in these tales (and is very fl when present) - these are serious, personal takes on war, and break the Commando mould in that there's no guarantee all the characters will make it to the last page unscathed (or even any of them).
Ennis provides a few pages of notes at the end, rounding off a superb, haunting collection.

Great to see the legendary David Lloyd finally team up with Ennis; Lloyd's characteristically bleak and haunting artwork (made famous in Moore's classic V For Vendetta) is the perfect vehicle for the grim naval tale that finishes the book.
