If you were like me, you found Johnny the Homicidal Maniac (And the superior SQUEE!) in a Hot Topic. It’s okay, you can admit it. The place had it’s time. Point being, it outlived Hot Topic, due to the quality of the work (Happy Noodle Boy aside).
There’s a reason Vasquez went on to assault the world (Thank fucking christ) with Invader Zim: He’s a comic genius. Funny funny funny guy. Smelly too, by all accounts. BUT, we’re not here to talk about that guy. Attention hog.
Y’see, Johnny, it seems, has his own Twitter. No, really. He’s found a means to reach us beyond the pages of the comics. He’s gone all technofied. Helps me fight through the monotony of my “real” job, getting random tweets from the unhinged lad. Vicarious murder never felt so good. A few faves, below.
"Keep hoping someone will, with their dying breath, let loose some cryptic lead about a treasure map. Thus far, nothing."
"You know, I’m older now, and I like to think wiser. Also, I made a guy dress up as a bear, lit him on fire and pushed him off a skyscraper."
"What is the deal with this weather? One minute it’s raining, the next you’re murdering a family of 4 in their home. Stability, please!"
"You think a person about to get their throat cut would appreciate some levity, but damned if my Leprechaun-style jig wasn’t for naught."
Okay, so those were all recent, but it presses my point, doesn’t it?

But for fuck’s sake, keep off the loose soil.
