Before Hot Topic got a whiff of the awesomeness of this comic and made it all trendy-like, Johnny the Homicidal Maniac was my first introduction to the world of comics.
As a fan of gore, bloody mayhem and humor, JTHM appealed to my morbid side.
Johnny is a crazed killer with a purpose. He drains the blood of his victims and uses the blood to put on a wall to keep a monster from escaping. What better reason do you need to chop people up?
Other than killing anyone who annoys him, which is pretty much everyone, Johnny does have a somewhat human side. He likes stars, the emotionless function of insects, watching people get abducted by aliens and so much more!
JTHM is no longer running so I’m recommending the Director’s Cut book of this because it includes the entire 7 issues of the series.
