I usually don't go for comics which try to parody and make fun of traditional superhero stories. Often I find them to be more mean spirited than humorous. Garth Ennis and John McCrae's Hitman was a definite exception. I thought that they struck just the right balance, and I have to admit I found the series pretty darn funny. When mainstream DC heroes would show up, they were part of the humor, but never too much at their own expense. Hitman himself had a great personality and was entertaining to read.
