    One thought on “Johnny the Homicidal Maniac: Director's Cut

    1. Bryce Wilson on said:

      One of my favorite critics recently noted that The Stuff that gets under your skin at seventeen never really leaves you That s true, but it s also true that sometimes under the skin is where it should stay It s hard to describe the effect this book had on me when I thumbed through the well read copy that got passed back and forth along with the joints, around the theater group where I made a brief sojourn on in my long quest to fit in at highschool The novel starts out with a cuddly cartoon crit [...]

    2. Jessica B on said:

      This comic book is not for the faint of heart It chronicles the experiences of Nny short for Johnny C a man who kills people who even slightly irk him 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 wall in [...]

    3. Ari on said:

      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.k.a Johnny is a raving lunatic with a vicious murderous streak, he has some of the most eloquent insights into human behavior that I ve come across in reading 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 here, so [...]

    4. Chris on said:

      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 guy who buys a dog, takes care of it, feeds it, loves it, and then one d [...]

    5. Aron Fischer on said:

      4 StarsRidiculous and disgusting, yet strangely hilarious, Jhonen Vasquez starts his series without much than a bunch of explicit violence driven gags 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 that c [...]

    6. M.P. Johnson on said:

      I Should Have Read This When I Was 15So much angst Just angsty angst from start to finish Yes, there s some murder, but mostly this is a long form rant about hip kids in subcultural groups goths, punks , who make fun of other people to make themselves feel better It s really talky and kind of repetitive 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 [...]

    7. Jade (Nail) on said:

      I came across this strangely charming comic through knowledge of Jhonen s newer works from my icon, if you re familiar with it, you ll probably of guessed that certain works to be the cult hit cartoon, Invader ZIM I was not certain about this comic, while not squeamish or put off by hefty amounts of gore Bloody Mess perk on Fallout 3 , a comic solely about a homicidal maniac didn t strike me as particularly thorough material However, I managed to find a scan of the first part online and eventual [...]

    8. Mon on said:

      How are you supposed to rate comic books You can t compare different style of illustration, and short strip comics often don t have a linear plot so you can t go for the story alone either Should originality make up for extra stars Or the format and overall quality and deliverance JTHM is probably the only comic collection I ve bothered to read than once It is so incredibly detailed that almost every single frame contains some other clues and satirical comments by the intruding author that are [...]

    9. Pronks on said:

      Quite an interesting book, and, perhaps, five years ago this would have been interestingly perfect for me, but I think I may have outgrown certain rants of Vasquez s as it seems, many other reviewers have as well Though, I must add, outgrowing something does not mean its bad, nor that your previous enjoyment of it is invalid.Like many, I first came about Vasquez through Invader Zim though I will spare a description of the show, I do highly recommend it and found the animation and drawing uniquel [...]

    10. Jacqueline Quackenbush on said:

      So this is the first comic graphic novel I have ever read and YES I realize I m severely behind the times with this one Rather than sneaking under high school bleachers to read this and feeling uber cool for reading something about a psycho killer, I read this in college and felt uber cool for reading something about a psycho killer In my defense, I was all of about 6 when this first came out and I was not an uber cool toddler what with the whole not brushing my hair phase and all.I really liked [...]

    11. Lorien Anderson on said:

      Like any other self respecting high school goth kid of the early 2000s, I was a teenage Jhonen Vasquez fan I decided to revisit this on a nostalgic impulse when I saw it at a comic shop the awesome In The Ball Park of Lancaster, OH I ve been pretty dismissive of Vasquez in the past, mentally categorizing him based on the taco cheese moose of doom style of random humor made popular by Invader Zim and espoused in Hot Topics the world over What struck me in rereading this was that, at least in earl [...]

    12. Dennis Mcfarland on said:

      I actually became aware of this book by a girl in one of our old youth groups She was a huge fan of the series, and recommended them to me I went online and found the compilation and ordered it This is not a novel, it is like a graphically illustrated comic book, BUT the writing is solid Vasquez has a profound statement at the beginning about the monster locked inside of all of us The reason why we rubber neck at car accident scenes and sometimes fantasize about hurting people that hurt us I ha [...]

    13. John Burns on said:

      I am consistently unimpressed with Graphic novels as a body of work, as well as with the people who read them and think they are actually remotely good This was such a crap, indulgent, lazily written book It s basically the fevered musings of a very immature, pretentious, petty man with a short attention span who is only interested in expressing how much he hates the outside world because all people ever do is pick on each other for the way they look What an immensely stupid world view It seriou [...]

    14. stephanie cat on said:

      Blood, twisted humor and a look down on society I absolutely love this book Johnny C or Nny kills people, not only the ones who deserve it, but people who call him wacky and randoms he meets on the street He lives in a house filled with torture rooms and a wall with a need for blood, with 2 psychotic doughboys and a floating rabbit head for company The closest thing he has to a friend is his neighbor, a small boy named Squee, and he writes a comic called Happy Noodle Boy It s bloody and destruct [...]

    15. Steve on said:

      I read the first 4 issues of the JTHM comic books when I was a teenager, so decided I d pick up the complete set to revisit and finish the series Just as I had remembered, it was disturbing, dark and all a little bit wrong Illustrations are brilliantly detailed, and in places the stories are quite funny grotesque violence if funny right I especially liked some of the public service announcements Here s a gem Kids Drug s won t help things They ll only turn you into a hideous little freak troll ba [...]

    16. Kelcie on said:

      I read this cover to cover at work on a particularly long shift It s pretty charming, but it gets a little old A little heavy on the Hot Topic type philosophy.

    17. Brenton on said:

      I put this book on my fantasy and adventure shelf, but it really deserves it s own shelf called F %ing twisted But that s purely for the benefit of other people reading this, as there s rather little that actually disturbs me in the realm of fiction and, while this complete collection of Vasquez s infamous comic is certainly gorey and twisted, I find quite a lot within its pages to enjoy and value.Johnny is a boy, or perhaps young man, who feels an overwhelming urge to kidnap, torture, and murde [...]

    18. Martin on said:

      To properly explain how this got on my list of reviews, I m afraid I m going to have to give you a glimpse into my thought process which is very fitting to what this graphic novel encompasses.Up until I browsed my at this point only friends list of books I was not aware that graphic novels could be part of my set After seeing his compilation of Achewood comix on his read list I started thinking about what comics or graphic novels would make mine.As a geek and a freak, comics have been part of my [...]

    19. Ming on said:

      Gory, darkly hud, gothic, and fun, Johnny The Homicidal Maniac is the perfect book for you if you like characters that seemingly randomly kill people in interesting ways In the book, Johnny or Nny is exactly as the title describes a homicidal maniac Nny kills to keep a wall painted with blood to stop whatever is on the other side from coming out Nny also kills because he admits that he is a homicidal maniac, yet is unsure because insane people cannot be sure of whether or not they are insane Nny [...]

    20. Ed Wilcox on said:

      I loved this As teenager in 2013, I could identify with a lot of the themes in this book, Not that I m murderer or anything of that ilk I found that the large amounts of sarcasm, the theme of people having in groups and out groups, and particularly the Anne Gwish panels, wherein Anne would break the fourth wall, and speak to the reader about how she felt outcast, and how she was so different from everyone else, she would then go on to insult someone else, who was obviously exactly like her, but [...]

    21. Kristopher Kelly on said:

      A brilliant, extremely violent graphic novel that tells the story of a madman and cartoonist named Johnny friends call him Nny , driven by forces he doesn t understand to keep a wall in his basement covered in fresh blood, lest the demon behind it should break free Johnny has an affinity for his sweet little neighbor kid Squee, an unlucky little guy whose parents ignore him and leave him at the mercy of the well meaning but always terrifying visits from Johnny The art and the lettering convey an [...]

    22. Devin on said:

      I m only giving this 4 stars instead of 5 because of the fact that the Wobbly Headed Bob comic strips and the Meanwhile comic strips were exempt and instead collected in their respective categories at the end of the collection of Squee s Wonderful Big Giant Book of Unspeakable Horrors And of course, some of the scenes of the Meanwhile comic strips are referenced later in the Johnny the Homicidal Maniac storyline I would have preferred having all of the comic shorts included and in their original [...]

    23. Rachel on said:

      Dear Die ary, I stared, motionless, before the mirror As always, I stayed until I m convinced that there is no glass, nothing, separating me from the room I see on the other side I imagine that everything is different over there Better There are people, in that world, who I would like But, like always, my hand hits the glass I know that if I d only waited just one second Shit I m gonna go kill a party clown.Johnny call him Nny has problems Nobody gets his humor, Mr Eff and Mr Z debate over whet [...]

    24. Emily on said:

      Johnny is a criminally insane, introverted young man on a killing spree, his victims being those who taunt and make fun of him, all to feed the red wall with their blood Driven by the voices in his head projected on to dead bunny, and two styrofoam pigs, he struggles with his madness and the fact that no matter what atrocities he commits, he is never caught.When my girlfriend recommended this book to me and told me that I d relate on a scary level, I thought she was exaggerating just a tiny bit [...]

    25. Jake Thomas on said:

      JTHM will always have a special place in the blackest, nastiest corner of my heart due to its being the first official comic book graphic novel I ever read What I love about the book is that it s not the gore that scares me, it s the thought behind it Johnny s existential crises come hard, fast and psychotic, as well as at the cost of many many lives The book works because it s not simply a splatter book with the killer we all know and love Johnny is a complex, thoughtful, aware and self loathin [...]

    26. Dominique on said:

      I remember ordering this from Barnes Noble after re runs of Invader Zim were coming back to Nicktoons By then, I became obsessed with the show and this comic seemed interesting to me At the time, I was a troubled teenager who liked the idea of killing bullies I know, twisted, but certainly not to the extent Eric Harris Dylan Klebold had.There were only one or two copies at the Barnes Noble store, and I believe I read just the first quarter of it After buying it, I read the rest, and really enjoy [...]

    27. Jorge Rios on said:

      What can I say about JTHM I ll start by clearing a few points A lot of people will pick this up because of Invader Zim, and I m pretty sure they ll expect something similar But alas, it s no Zim Not that it s bad but Nny certainly requires a mature audience, the humor still as twisted I could go on about the plot but I d rather focus on what you are getting You get all 7 issues of the JTHM run, sprinkled with a few Meanwhiles, PSA, Happy Noodle Boy who is like Gir, but popular with hobos strip [...]

    28. Eve Kay on said:

      Probably the best comic of all time Wonderfully dark drawing, wonderfully dark stories, wonderfully dark characters.Difficult to decide if Johnny is better than Squee but you really can t compare the two I think Johnny embodies my dark little mind Not only entertainment but full of right on facts Because he s evil, he s middle name is misery

    29. Rika Akuma on said:

      My girlfriend let me borrow it and let me tell you this the amount of dark humor, gore, and relatability in this story is unquestionably amazing I almost thought I wouldn t like it, what with the gore, but it makes you think about life as an artist and contemplating with suicide.But the amount of trigger warnings in this book is unending so only read it if you feel you are up to it mentally view spoiler The most unsettling mine girlfriend s favorite part would have to be when he saves Squee from [...]

    30. Gil on said:

      This is an insanely depressing book It is supposed to be, and it is amazing still That being said if you are already very depressed I would not recommend reading this book At least, if you do read it, read it through all the way to the end in one go I know that is a little insane but really, I read this book over the course of a month and for most of that month my already terrible depression issues got even worse It was great, at the end of the book That is all I can tell you without spoilers Bu [...]
