Praise for Demon

 

"I respect Jason so much for following his audacious, wild, insane muse. Demon is raw, explosive fun.” ―Chester Brown, author of Paying For It

 

"Crazy + Genius = Shiga!" ―Scott McCloud, author of The Sculptor

 

"[Shiga] set out to make a dynamic comic, one that would both encourage and facilitate readers to turn the page again and again...The result is something goofy, funny, harrowing, and exciting in a way that action comics rarely―if ever―achieve."―A.V. Club

 

“Deeply uncomfortable and utterly brilliant.”―Gene Luen Yang, author of American Born Chinese, Boxers & Saints, and the Secret Coders series

 

About Demon

 

Immortal actuary Jimmy makes a startling discovery: Agent Hunter, his long-dead adversary, is actually alive and a demon himself! Hunter has spent the last century concocting a deadly trap for his nemesis, and he has the perfect bait: Jimmy's daughter, Sweet Pea. In the epic showdown to to end all epic showdowns, we finally reach the thrilling conclusion to this madcap series.

 

From the brilliant and profane mind of Jason Shiga, known for his high-concept comics work on the web and in print, comes a magnum opus: a four-volume mystery adventure about the shocking chaos (and astronomical body count) one highly rational and utterly sociopathic man can create in the world, given one simple supernatural power.

With his demon powers, nothing is denied Jimmy Yee. Sex, drugs, and rock-n-roll that's just for amateurs. He's experienced every earthly pleasure known to man, and even invented a few of his own. Confident that he and his daughter Sweetpea have outlived all of the their enemies, Jimmy spends his day reveling in his immortality. But after 250 years, immortality is getting a little dull.

The OSS is after Jimmy, and they're planning on using his daughter to catch him. But Jimmy will tear the world apart to keep his daughter safe. Literally. This morally bankrupt immortal freak of nature has absolutely no concern for the wellbeing of any human being besides himself and his Sweetpea. It'd be adorable if it weren't so scary.
