A Year of Cool Comic Book Moments – Day 136

Here is the latest cool comic book moment in our year-long look at one cool comic book moment a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here‘s the archive of the moments posted so far!

Today we take a look at a neat new mini-series from Image Comics by Christopher Yost and Scott Wegener.

Enjoy!

In this scene, we are first introduced to our hero of Killer of Demons, who is, you know, the killer of demons.

Yost and Wegener introduce the concept beautifully.

To set it up, our hero has been cajoled into coming to a strip club by his boss.

Very cool.

This was a great start to a fun mini-series.

Can’t wait to see more!

And the title of the series is…?

Ah, now it’s corrected. Way to make me look dumb. ;-)

I think Brian mentioned it in his write-up… Killer of Demons, no?

Oh, sorry, Jack, I corrected it before seeing your comment. Sorry man!

WINCESTERS!

I’ll have a shot of Hurlmeister. LOL.

Kind of an odd strip club, that only allows missionary position in the bathrooms. :)

I went to school for forensic science. They never taught us that demon blood produces splatters with such sharp, linear angles.

I really enjoyed how utterly absurd the scenes of Demons “tempting” people throughout this series were, whether it be this scene where the bartender convinces a man to kill his girlfriend with minimal effort or the scene in I believe the last issue where before Dave kills him, a demon is in the process of convincing a coworker to smoke crack because it’s not like it’s unhealthy like tobacco or anything, it’s just crack. Or the one where Dave’s boss convinces an employee to help him make a snuff film and the guy wonders why anyone would want to make a film about chewing tobacco.

Yeah, it’s all pretty stupid and obvious, but it’s executed with such a straight face that you can’t help but laugh. This was a fun series.

Sure was. I was actually happy that it ended on a tease for volume 2.

There’s some amusing stuff here, for sure, but the sexualization of violence is creepy, and not in a good way.

Well, how else are you supposed to get a Succubus into a vulnerable position where she won’t see the knife coming and turn into that thing and kill you first?
