Yes, this comic is full of gratuitous violence. It is an exercise in unrestrained id, an opportunity to give the viscious little monster inside us all a pat on the head and take it for an outing.

Full of biting zingers on social normalities and abnormalities, Johnny the Homicidial Maniac chronicles the life and adventures of Nny, a reclusive psycho who blends in disturbingly well with those around him. Nny keeps mostly to himself except for his bloody encounters with idiots, a-holes or both.

Johnny the Homicidal Maniac will neve be for everyone. The frank, tongue-in-cheek treatment of intense violence is only for those with a strong stomach and a cheerfully warped sense of humor. For those who fit that category, its a gem.

I believe that this book is part of the reason that comic books get a bad rap for being overtly violent and obscene anymore...

Not to say that it isn't a great book, now. Take one part Invader Zim (if you haven't watched Zim why are you even here?) one part Kill Bill, and one part just good old-fashioned psychosis, and you have one great comic book, in my opinion.
I highly recommend this for anyone who wants something off the beaten path.

A very dark and disturbing comic. The title says it all. If that kind of art doesn't appeal to you, then this is not for you. Enjoyed following Johnny and his depraved mind. The only issue I had was reading it. The words are all smashed close together and written in all caps. It took me longer to read than the usual comic but was still worth it.
