Squee’s Wonderful Big Giant Book of Unspeakable Horrors (Squee!) by Jhonen Vásquez has destroyed my brain.
My God! My brain my brain. My poor abused brain.
This is really funny, but in a schadenfreude way that you feel kinda ashamed about. Very dark satire. I often found myself really feeling bad for the kid. He was going through a lot. I kept thinking, “that poor kid needs a hug” That poor kid. No wonder he neurotic. I would be neurotic too if I had aliens chasing me and giant dust mites waking me up in my sleep. Every terrible thing happens to this kid, and no one seems to care. He seems like a really nice kid.
For me the highlight of this book was Pepito. I could get a print of the strip of Pepito being introduced to his class and melting the other kids in the class with his mind when they were jerks. Kinda cathartic I think. I too have wanted to melt classmates in middle school and elementary.
“Stand back amigo, this is a job for the ANTICHRIST!”to Squee before bringing doom upon his bullying classmates
This is an offshoot of Johnny The Homicidal Maniac which is the same brand of humor. Still, it looks really funny. I might give it a go, just because of quotes like this.
