A 7 issue comic book series created by Jhonen Vasquez, following the life of a mentally unstable
man, named Johnny.
Now, Johnny C. (Nny for short) talks to his inner voices reflected in inanimate objects, goes on many philosophical rants, terrorizes
his little neighbor and most
of all: kills people. A lot of people. Though most
of his victims seem
to have deserved their gory
fate, as the story progresses, Nny seems to loose
his focus and kills for rather petty reasons. Well now, I won’t ruin
the plot for you. Read it for yourself.
The nature of the humor
(Yes, this is in fact
a very humorous series) is of course, rather dark, with ironic puns and most
of all; satire.
" Hey, did you read the last issue of Johnny the Homicidal Maniac?"
" Dear Diary,
Today I stuffed some
rats I put in the blender. I'm wondering if maybe, there really
is something wrong with me." - Nny
