This Book Is Good - Go Die #1

Mark P. Slee's comic strip, Go Die, was JUST ahead of its time, as its cynical, outrageous humor and over-the-top violence would have fit in perfectly in the world post-South Park, but when it became popular on college and indie newspapers in the early 90s, it was definitely a bit...different. In 1993, Threshold Press put out a collection of Go Die strips in a comic book, Go Die #1. If you ever manage to come across this comic - buy it! It is sick, but quite humorous, as I'll explain in a moment, with an introduction of the cast of characters (courtesy of the only Go Die site I know, which has not changed since I first found it on the net about seven years ago,

First off, sorry you have to click on each strip to read it clearly - weird quirk in blogger's photo-hosting. At least, by clicking, you DO get a full image, which is nice.

This is Ron, a college student (looks kinda old for a college student, though)...

Ron owns Spoon, a drug-addicted, alcoholic dog.

Ron's young neighbor, Billy, is a violent psychopath.

Ron's next-door neighbors are the married couple, Dead Guy and Naked Lady...

Most of the strips, though, just involve Ron and Spoon, making a lot of deadpan jokes.

Well, I think you've had a good taste - I happen to love Go Die, but the humor is certainly not for everybody. I hope I've shared enough that you can figure if the humor is too twisted for you.

Finally, TEN (which is a lot) cool points to the person who can tell me what Mark P. Slee is up to nowadays!

Note how this is phrased so that if one doesn't like the humor, it must just be TOO much, too EXTREME for one's fragile, vanilla mind.

Slick. Very slick.

That is the only way I could wrap my mind around someone not liking the humor!

Mark is cool. I met him back in '93 while attending U of I. He drew an off the top of his head cartoon of all the characters of his strip chasing each other in a circle inside a thought bubble above Ron's head. Wherever he is now, I wish him well.
