Demon, Volume 1
Wow. Ok..... um. Before this, my only exposure to Jason Shiga's work was the adorable children's book Meanwhile.
This is not adorable.
Nor is it a children's book.
Demon, Volume 1 is actually one of the sickest, most twisted books I have ever read. And that is saying something.
I think I can sum it all up by telling you the sentence "slit his throat with a cum knife" is used.
Yeah. It's line that. Haha!
Basic premise: Jimmy has lost his family and his will to live so we open to images of his suicide. But, when Jimmy inexplicably wakes up in bed the next morning, he is extremely confused. He continues attempting suicide in a variety of ways, each time waking up anew. And then stuff gets weird.
Listen, I am not telling you anything else, if you want to know more, you will have to read it. You big sicko, you.
Not for the faint of heart, this book feels extremely gratuitous and just so very wrong. This compendium edition drops on October 4th. Read it at your own risk.
Final Rating: 2/5 bookmarks.
