This novel shares similarities with the bizarro and New Weird genres, although it was written prior to both.

Krokodil Tears follows Jessamyn--a young cyborg who must face the Tazmanian Devil (blatantly a parody of Hannibal Lector, but mixed with Taz from the Tazmanian Devil cartoons), a Californian bounty hunter with all the technology a millionaire can muster, and the Jibbenainosay--an extra-dimensional, Lovecraftian beast guided by the religious leader Nguyen Seth, who himself reminds the read
First chapters were really funny for the genre. I learned after finishing it that Yeovil is Kim Newman who wrote one of the best alternate genre book I read Anno-Dracula. But is magic didn't work on me this time.

Yes, a lot a cameo of pop culture icons but it's the only thing that I like in the book. Probably because this caricatural post-apocalyptic world is not my genre.. The plot is a linear bloodbath... a teen girl gain suddenly cybernatic upgrades that made her a walking killing machine but
After reading "Comeback Tour" not knowing it was the third part of a story, it's cool to be able to see the background of the character Krokodil. It a bit better than "Demon Download" but not as good as the one I mentioned first. Too bad the final part never came out.
The transformation of Jeassamyn Bonney! From homicidal gang-girl to bionic spirit warrior fused to a cosmic monster! Damn, it's such a pity this series was never finished.

"Jack Yeovil" is a pseudonym used by author Kim Newman.

Newman's pseudonymous novels, as Jack Yeovil, play elegant games with genre cliche--perhaps the best of these is the sword-and-sorcery novel Drachenfels which takes the prescribed formulae of the games company to whose bible it was written and make them over entirely into a Kim Newman novel.
