    I don't think it sounds weird. It's supposed to be a kind of dark comedy. If everything is shied away from you wouldn't get things like the story with the man hiring Torpedo to kill his ex-girlfriend...

    I've only read the first volume but Torpedo is great. It's a free for all as far as humour and doesn't shy away from anything good or bad.

    Awesome. Haven't been buying Marvel for a while so am out of the loop. Shame they couldn't just collect 7-35 and be done with it though unless the solicitation on Amazon is wrong.
