"No matter how hard he tries, Jimmy Yee cannot die. A noose around his neck, a razor across his wrist, and even a bullet to his head all yield the same results: he awakes from each suicide attempt, miraculously unharmed, in his shabby room at the Sunbeam Motel. Has he gone mad? Or has he truly died and found himself in hell? Jimmy is willing to tear the world down around him to get at the truth. Highly analytical and utterly unscrupulous, he is uniquely suited to unraveling this bizarre mystery. From the brilliant and profane mind of Jason Shiga, known for his high-concept graphic novels, comes Demon: a four-volume magnum opus about the unspeakable chaos that one indestructible man can unleash on the world and the astronomical body count he leaves behind"-- Provided by publisher.

Demon is a really quick read, with simple art and few words. Yet it's still compelling, gory, ridiculous--and just a lot of fun. Jason Shiga starts gory and mysterious. Then he just runs with it. Jimmy, the main character, has no redeeming qualities based on this first volume. His backstory almost makes you like him, then he goes back to being horrible. It's irreverent fun and I loved it.

Very impressive comic from a master. Funny, gross, and overall extremely enjoyable. Highly recommend, if you can stomach it.

Trippy, violent, and a little twisted, but it works. Interested to see where this series goes.
