4 Stars
Ridiculous and disgusting, yet strangely hilarious, Jhonen Vasquez starts his series without much more than a bunch of explicit violence-driven gags. But a little earlier than midway, his tendency to inject Sandman-like philosophical rants into his lovable homicidal protaganist gives the book a much needed second dimension, and by the time a supernatural element sneaks it's way into the story, the reader may find themselves hooked. This zany orgy of blood and guts has an existential core that creeps up on you, placing you into a mode you wont really find anywhere else: horrified, laughing uncontrollably, and in serious doubt about the fine line between stability and destruction.
