Author(s): Jason Shiga
The OSS is after Jimmy, and they're planning on using his daughter to catch him. But Jimmy will tear the world apart to keep his daughter safe. Literally. This morally bankrupt immortal freak of nature has absolutely no concern for the wellbeing of any human being besides himself and his Sweetpea. It'd be adorable if it weren't so scary.From the brilliant and profane mind of Jason Shiga, known for his high-concept comics work on the web and in print, comes a magnum opus: a four-volume mystery adventure about the shocking chaos (and astronomical body count) one highly rational and utterly sociopathic man can create in the world, given a single simple supernatural power.
This ain't your mother's scatalogical bloodbath! Volume 2 of the ultra-violent, ultra-hilarious science fiction mystery series from bestselling Meanwhile author Jason Shiga.
Praise for Jason Shiga and the Demon series:"I truly think Demon is one of the best comics that has come out in the last few years. It's surprising, unique, and insanely well crafted." Brian Michael Bendis, author of the Ultimate Spider-Man series"Jason Shiga has done something remarkable with Demon: created a surpassing morally repugnant protagonist I still root for because of his prodigious intelligence. I'm ashamed of myself for liking him!" Adam Savage of MythBusters"It s bizarre, sick, funny, and more than a little depraved, all of which is part of its charm." NerdistI respect Jason so much for following his audacious, wild, insane muse. Demon is raw, explosive fun. Chester Brown, author of Paying For It"Crazy + Genius = Shiga!" Scott McCloud, author of The Sculptor"Murder and suicide have never looked so adorable." Booklist"[Shiga] set out to make a dynamic comic, one that would both encourage and facilitate readers to turn the page again and again...The result is something goofy, funny, harrowing, and exciting in a way that action comics rarely if ever achieve." A.V. Club Deeply uncomfortable and utterly brilliant. Gene Luen Yang, author of American Born Chinese, Boxers & Saints, and the Secret Coders series Awesome! And horrifying. But mostly awesome! Zach Weinersmith, author of Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal"
