Marjorie Finnegan: Temporal Criminal Debuts From Mind Of Garth Ennis.
AWA news release.
She’s Marjorie Finnegan. She’s a temporal criminal. What more do you need to know?
Oh, all right then: All Marj wants to do is race up and down the time-lanes, stealing every shiny-gleamy-pretty-sparkly she can lay her hands on. But her larcenous trail from the Big Bang to the Ninety-fifth Reich has drawn the beady eye of the Temporal PD, whose number one Deputy Marshall is now hard on our heroine’s tail– and taking things extremely personally.
Worse still, Marj’s worthless creep of an ex and his even scummier partner have seen an angle of their own in all this, and now intend to use her time-tech to change history for their own benefit. Marj’s only ally? A guy called Tim. And he’s just a head. I mean come on, what use is just a head…?
“Time travel inspires endless possibilities for all kinds of fun, and if there’s one thing Marj likes- it’s fun,” says series writer Garth Ennis. “This is my own spin on the time travel tale, with a twist or two that occurred while I was thinking about the conundrums that temporal mischief can inspire. It’s got Marj herself, a fun-lovin’ gal who should be fine as long as she doesn’t slow down long enough to notice the chaos she’s causing, a villain so evil he looks like Satan, another one who started making trouble back in the womb, a guy who’s just a head, and dinosaurs. Really, it’s hard to go wrong with dinosaurs. Especially smart ones. But just in case, let’s throw in a time cop with a malfunctioning sex toy as well…”
“Every few years, Garth [Ennis] creates a game-changing story that locates the pulse of popular culture and slices it open: “Preacher, his reinvention of The Punisher, “The Boys.” “Marjorie Finnegan” is his next masterpiece, a hard-charging, sci-fi romp, featuring a lovably flawed protagonist, perfectly realized with co-creators Goran Sudzuka and Miroslav Mrva” says Chief Creative Officer at AWA, Alex Alonso.
Series artist, Goran Sudzuka says “prior to this book I worked with Garth on A Walk Through Hell where all the characters were very subdued, while here they’re over the top and very often quite crazy. Well, the whole book is. So my approach was very different, too. I slided to a more cartoonish style to depict the rollercoaster of emotions our characters are going through. Yet I kept a bit of realism, because there’s time traveling and we have a variety of scenes, from ancient Egypt to 23rd century New York, so I wanted to make them as believable as possible.”
“A funny and very dynamic story like this one has a whole variety of moods that I’m trying to capture in color. And that gives me the opportunity to try out different approaches and have fun too. I hope readers will get the same thrill while reading as I have when coloring it” colorist, Miroslav Mrva remarked.
