was a one-shot comic book written by Garth Ennis, with pencils and lettering by Amanda Conner and inks by Jimmy Palmiotti. It was originally published by Image Comics in 2002. A parody of mainstream superhero comics, it details the brief career of a prostitute given superhuman powers by the Viewer (himself a voyeuristic, perverted parody of Uatu the Watcher from the Marvel Comics universe) she reluctantly joins the League of Honor, comprising of: The Saint (a Superman parody); The Knight (a Batman parody); The Squire (a Robin parody); The Lady (a Wonder Woman parody); The Lime (a Green Lantern parody); and Speedo (a Flash parody). Together they fight an array of lackluster villains such as The Noun and The Adverb, until her coarse language and actions, violence, bloody retributions, and her giving The Saint a blowjob result in her being expelled from the League. She rejoins them to fight a terrorist attack, flying into space holding a nuclear bomb facing certain death (more in an effort to save the life of her young child than anyone elses in the vicinity). --This was the original first printing run, so the related 8 page story entitled "The Pro Vs. The Ho" usually found in the later prestige formats and trade paperbacks, in which the Pro squares off with a 12-armed prostitute, is not included. As with any Garth Ennis work, graphic with explicit language--yet i found it hilarious. For .
