May 16, Bryce Wilson rated it really liked it Shelves: IT flipped the whole earth, other worlds, and the after life Heaven is a bunch of folding chairs and a taco bell, Hell a slightly dingier version of the San Fernando Valley a very angry bird.
Coupled with a uniquely simple and beautiful art style, like Ralph Steadman made horrifically clear and a sense of metaphysical absurdity to rival Achewood, all timed with a Chuck Jones like sense of the gag. It was like what hearing The Sex Pistols back in must have been like, dark, funny, free and more then a little truly scary. Of course the thing could never hold up.
Nor could it ever recapture the rush of the forbidden I felt reading it for the first time. There are parts that are giddy perfection. View all 8 comments. What can I say about dear ol’ Nny? LOL He is so delightfully mad in a completely insane world. For many of us Jhonen Vasquez fans, this is where it all began. Just us, Johnny, Nail Bunny and a few dead bodies laying around.
He is a young man who struggle Devilishly demented! He is a young man who struggles with more than just mental illness. He has psychotic episodes, hallucinations, and more than that a desire to commit murder.
He stuffs rats into stuffed animals and puts them into blenders. He Nails animals to the wall and then speaks to them. Creepier yet, they speak to him! He keeps people in the basement to exact his need for violence and bloodshed.
And he constantly battles with the desire to commit suicide. This is one of my most favorite comic book series. I love the artwork that Jhonen Vasquez presents. It is both creepy and stimulating to the eye. But as the creator of the Invader Zim series I would expect nothing less. JTHM was his first adventure into creation via art and I have to say it’s most definitely his best. The distain for living day today and the characters disgust for the rest of humanity are really felt through his artwork.
JTHM is both extremely comical and horrifyingly terrible. But obviously it is only that way for a select type of reader. I feel that most people would find this comic very unsettling. However I also feel that this is geared more towards the younger generations who would see the comedy of irony in it. I could speak volumes on this work but I will stop there to restrain myself from babbling LOL.
I would highly recommend this comic book series to anyone who likes Invader Zim or creepy comics in general. Mar 20, Jessica B rated it really liked it. This comic book is not for the faint of heart. It chronicles the experiences of Nny short for Johnny C. It can be someone who trips him for no reason, or has a tie that he doesn’t like. However, the story is way deeper than just ruthless killing. There are supernatural influences behind Nny’s killing sprees, making it impossible for him to be caught, even when brutally killing someone in public.
Nny says he must kill in order to paint a certain This comic book is not for the faint of heart. Nny says he must kill in order to paint a certain wall in his house with his victim’s blood in order to keep a monster from breaking through. Nny also has his internal voices having lives of their own, in the form of two possessed styrofoam Pillsbury Doughboys, and the decomposed body of a rabbit that Nny brought home and fed for three days before nailing it to a wall. The main theme of the story is Nny questioning his place in the world, and why things are the way they are.
Recommended for anyone who likes deep thinking and is okay with graphic murder scenes and almost continual profanity. There are also sequels of sorts, called Squee and I Feel Sick, which follow the stories of two side characters from the original comic. Aug 23, Ari rated it really liked it Shelves: Thank you, Best Buddy, for lending me this one to read.
As strange as this may sound–given the title–this was a very satisfying read. Despite the fact that Nny a. It’s stark, and honest, and holds nothing back. Given the fact that this is also an incredibly gory story to read–seriously, all kinds of killing in all kinds of ways happen Thank you, Best Buddy, for lending me this one to read. Given the fact that this is also an incredibly gory story to read–seriously, all kinds of killing in all kinds of ways happen here, so take a peek before you pick it up–there’s a sort of twisted and yet viable shockingly!
A little treat, albeit difficult to read without several breaks in between parts. Oct 08, Aron Fischer rated it really liked it. But a little earlier than midway, his tendency to inject Sandman-like philosophical rants into his lovable homicidal protaganist gives the book a much needed second dimension, and by the time a supernatural element sneaks it’s way into the story, the reader may find themselves hooked.
This zany orgy of blood and guts has an existential core 4 Stars Ridiculous and disgusting, yet strangely hilarious, Jhonen Vasquez starts his series without much more than a bunch of explicit violence-driven gags. This zany orgy of blood and guts has an existential core that creeps up on you, placing you into a mode you wont really find anywhere else: Sep 20, M.
Johnson rated it liked it. Just angsty angst from start to finish. Yes, there’s comcs murder, but mostly manisc is a long-form rant about hip kids in subcultural groups goths, punkswho make fun of other people to make themselves feel better.
It’s really talky and kind of repetitive.
Johnny the Homicidal Maniac: Director’s Cut
Johnny kidnaps someone and tortures that person while proselytizing about the wrongs of mistreating people. Eventually, it gets a little deeper, but it’s kind of like punk rock. You really have to get into it when you’re a teenager for it to hit you the right way.
Jan 31, Chris rated it it was amazing Shelves: I’m putting these two together, because they really do form one larger piece – the craft of an artistic mastermind. Although perhaps “mastermind” isn’t the best word to use here. What do you call the person that they lock up when they’re about fifteen because they keep saying things to their teachers like, “The human body has ten thousand miles of blood vessels in it and I can feel my hate for you coursing through every one?
Or the angry hobo who lurches up to your car as you wait at the stop light, a bucket of dirty, grey water in one hand and a rotten squeegee in the other and proceeds to molest himself with it, afterward demanding that you gave him change, quote, “For the show” That kind of guy. What would you call him?
Whatever it is, welcome to the world of Jhonen Vasquez. Johnny the Homicidal Maniac is the story of Johnny C.
Johnny the Homicidal Maniac & Squee
Jjohnny is rail-thin, yet something of a fashion plate, and lives in a broken-down house with two evil Styrofoam doughboys, homicical dead bunny nailed to a wall, and a gateway to a creature of infinite evil somewhere in one of the many basements of the house. In his free time, Johnny kills people in horrible and graphically interesting ways. Not because he’s a bad person, necessarily.
He does have the wall to feed, after all – a wall that has to be continually painted with fresh blood, lest the Evil come out of it. But he is, by his own admission, “quite horrendously insane. He murders the people who feel superior to others while at the same time feeling that he is superior to them.
The kills the smug and the self-possessed, the materialistic and the bored, the lowbrows and the posers and the jerks who seem vomics infest every corner of his world. And while he does kill with great glee and abandon, he occasionally takes comocs time to wonder if what he’s doing is worth it.
If murder is all that his life has become.
