Took itself a little too seriously at times but I like those rational genre types so gave it a 3+ star.

Marshal Law stood out from the many nihilistic characters crowding the pages of late 80s/early 90s comics. Literally an anti-hero, Law hates and even actively hunts superheroes. Set in San Futuro, a near-future version of San Francisco, the long overdue hardcover collection of the extant tales (save for the crossover storylines with The Mask, Pinhead, and The Savage Dragon), Marshal Law: The Deluxe Edtion features scathing indictments on religion, establishment politics, war, bigotry, hypocrisy and more, all wrapped in the cape of super-heroics. Writer Mills, founder and longtime editor of the famed British comic anthology series 2000 A.D., and artist O'Neill, perhaps best known now as the co-creator (with Alan Moore) of The League of Extraordinary Gentleman, deliver a unique hyper-violent, bloody reality populated with oddities such as the Jesus League of America, the Public Spirit, and Hitler Hernandez. This exploration of superheros in post-modern America belongs on the shelf beside similarly themed works as Watchmen and The Dark Knight Returns.
