"No matter how hard he tries, Jimmy Yee cannot die. A noose around his neck, a razor across his wrist, and even a bullet to his head all yield the same results: he awakes from each suicide attempt, miraculously unharmed, in his shabby room at the Sunbeam Motel. Has he gone mad? Or has he truly died and found himself in hell? Jimmy is willing to tear the world down around him to get at the truth. Highly analytical and utterly unscrupulous, he is uniquely suited to unraveling this bizarre mystery. From the brilliant and profane mind of Jason Shiga, known for his high-concept graphic novels, comes Demon: a four-volume magnum opus about the unspeakable chaos that one indestructible man can unleash on the world and the astronomical body count he leaves behind"--Provided by publisher.

Not a comic for everyone. Morbid and surreal and just offbeat. We have a main character, Jimmy, who desperately wants to die. He tries many times only to find that he can't. It takes him awhile to figure out how, and I liked that reveal, but once it changed into a weird 'secret organization wants to get me/talk to me/whatever' situation it sort of stalled. Probably so it could continue into the next volumes. The art is very simple in logical in stark contrast to the situation while still complementing the very logical thought processes Jimmy has in trying to dispatch himself, the reasons for that desire, and his actions once he clues in.

Morbidly fascinating.
