If you have knee-jerk reactions of fear and hatred when an artist or writer does something different from their previous work, don't write a whiny review, just wait for him to do a JTHM follow-up. And while I love Jellyfist, it is not for anyone who doesn't fall over laughing at the prospect of flinging a baby at approaching hobos. Enough said.
Jellyfist is another one of JV's comic collections of complete nonsense, nonsense that would be grotesque if it weren't so innocently amusing. Jellyfist reminds me a lot of JV's Bad Art Collection, except the BAC was, as JV described (and I'll paraphrase), crappy comics that he originally drew on napkins. Jellyfist obviously has much more polish, but the original BAC concept was to create silly, insane comics for no other reason than to amuse, and Jellyfist fits that bill quite nicely.
But the meat and potatoes of the work is in the commentary provided on the sides of the pages, in which the two artists discuss their work. All the comics can be read-through in only a few minutes, and some are hilarious while others are meh and others are huh?, but the commentary provides the longest lasting, and for me, the biggest laughs.
It's one thing to read a comic of a man accidentally hurling his son through a window in an attempt to save himself from a sea of hobos flooding his home, but it's quite another thing to discuss it afterwards, especially when deprived of sleep and buzzed on Red Bulls with deadlines passing by...

I love Jhonen Vasquez, but I was very disapointed in this book. It seems like he was just trying to put a product out no matter what the quality.Published on February 18, 2008 by thresher54
