Warning – today’s post contains use of language (strong) – once in my description, and in some of the below panels. Please skip today’s post, if you think you might be offended by this.
Today’s gift isn’t a ‘real’ person, per say. Today I give you…Johnny The Homicidal Maniac, but feel free to call him Nny. JTHM was created by Jhonen Vasquez (Invader Zim! Doomdoomdoom). Nny is pretty deranged, and very murderous. He’s very anti-social, and for the love of all that is holy…NEVER call him ‘wacky’. ;-p
Johnny’s voices or…’room mates’ are – NailBunny, Nny bought a rabbit, fed it twice, then nailed him to the wall. NailBunny is pretty straight with Nny, he is essentially Johnny’s conscience. Then we have The DoughBoys – PsychoDoughBoy (D-Boy) and Mr Fuck (Mr Eff) are foam figures that Nny brought home, and repainted. D-Boy is Nny’s self-loathing, he often encourages Nny to kill himself. Mr Eff is Nny’s homicial mania, he encourages Nny to kill, and collect blood for The Wall…
The JTHM comics are absolutely brilliant. They’re completely insane, often very funny, and utterly twisted, in a truly brilliant way. I can’t recommend reading these comics enough. Also, the front covers for each comic, wow. Absolutely stunning. The style of the comics are high contrast black & white. Also, in the comic borders, there are hidden messages…so you find yourself reading the panels, then turning the page every which way, so as to read the messages there.
Below are just a few panels, to show how brilliant the style of the comic is, and to also show how epic Nny is. I really hope anyone reading this, who hasn’t heard of JTHM before, will get themselves to their local comic store – and check Jhonen’s masterpiece out.
