Reviews

...Marra plumbs deeper-than-ever dimensions in funnybook eccentricity...--Joe McCulloch ...Marra expresses his hero s hyper-exaggerated masculinity... through in the combination of over-the-top fight choreography and quippy dialogue, casting the lead character a wise-cracking action hero. It s a role that is highlighted by Marra s art, which juggles grisly killings with sensational action beats and bursts of dark comedy and sexual relief.--Oliver Sava" The Most Badass Graphic Novel Ever Created It can be read as a trenchant spoof of the jingoistic Bush years or of Z-grade 80 s action films or it can be read as the worrisome notebook doodles of a demented teenager. Whatever it is, you probably haven t read anything like it before.--Dan Meth" Terror Assaulteris weird, and at times uncomfortable... but in all of its discords the book creates an energy that infuses its anthemic punchlines with real force. ... There s a really crazy, disturbing, and strange world beyond the edges ofTerror Assaulter and even in glimpses, it is fairly potent. --Sarah Horrocks" Super inspiring. A visceral shining beacon of lightning for lesser cartoonists to marvel at. Does what comics are supposed to do, builds a new world, sometimes a better world... a different, cracked-mirror-view world. It's the world so tightly associated with fantasy itself that it says something essential about comics themselves, resonates on the highest frequency the medium is capable of. Or if it can get higher, f--- it, that's too high.--Josh Bayer (Raw Power, Theth) The Most Badass Graphic Novel Ever Created... It can be read as a trenchant spoof of the jingoistic Bush years or of Z-grade 80's action films... or it can be read as the worrisome notebook doodles of a demented teenager.

It's a role that is highlighted by Marra's art, which juggles grisly killings with sensational action beats and bursts of dark comedy and sexual relief.--Oliver Sava ...[S]uper-sexy, uber-sleazy, super-weird... I can't think of another book that feels like a Peter Saul painting, reads like the diary of someone's darkest fantasy, and never for a second lets you forget that it's the most unreal version of a 'realistic' subject ever put to paper. Like a pop song written by a masterful craftsman, there's never a verse that goes on too long or loses the overall rhythm, even when he's riffing off into a Hendrix-like frenzy of spontaneity and power chords. The book builds to a complete orchestral crescendo, making its message about the retarded nature of a mind that thrives on pulp violence unmistakably clear. Everything he is hinting at about how this phenomenon is at the center of modern American culture is pretty clear too.--Josh Bayer Everything about this book is over the top, from the bright colors to the violence (exploding vehicles, bullets pounding into flesh, martial arts moves that defy physics). What made me laugh throughout were the very graphic sex scenes with their stilted dialogue, where characters state what is happening as if they're required to say something. It's the best send-up of sex scenes in bad action movies that I've ever seen.--Gene Ambaum Terror Assaulter is weird, and at times uncomfortable... -but in all of its discords the book creates an energy that infuses its anthemic punchlines with real force. ...
