YMMV / The Chronicles of Wormwood

  • Crowning Moment of Awesome: Even if you don't want to read the rest of the series, and you might not, it's worth tracking down issue #3 of the original series to see Wormwood's guided tour of heaven and hell.
  • Crowning Moment of Funny: Wormwood tracking Maggie down in The Last Battle #4.
    • Babs flipping off Nigel the Beast with Seven Heads and telling him "fuck off"
  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: At the end of a press confess where Wormwood and Jay are announcing a new series call "Revelations" where they will invite influential people like politicians, CEOs, stars, etc. to talk to jay about what they really do, Wormwood was accused by a reporter of just using Jay as a Token Minority and Jay stops the argument by standing up, putting his hand on Wormwood's shoulder and saying, "This man is my brother. Thank you one and all".
  • Crosses the Line Twice: Pope Jacko and his penchant for coke-fueled orgies with scantily-clad nuns, Wormwood swapping a dude's nose with his dick, God as a constantly masturbating, levitating moron, killer eunuchs, every single TV show Wormwood's responsible for... look, it's Garth Ennis.
  • Fridge Logic: Wait... Wormwood can't cure Jay's perfectly mundane retardation by getting HIT ON THE HEAD!
    • Fridge Brilliance: In the final issue of the first series, Jay is cured by other means - and begs to be killed. In a cured state, he remembers all the things he went through, and how little it amounted to in the end. The only way he can stand to live is as a retard.
    Wormwood: Jay's suffered for the human race twice now. He's done his bit. And me... Well, as I never ger tired of saying, I am the Antichrist. So it looks like you'll have to sort out your own problems, folks. Because me and my pal Jesus? We're not about to do shit.
    • Of course, Jay starts to recover naturally near the end of the second series and decides he does want to continue helping people.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The visions of Hell that are shown to Paul Carnovitz in The Last Battle #1, particularly if you're a parent of young children.
