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.
Volume 1 of 4
“Jason Shiga has done something remarkable with Demon: created a surpassing morally repugnant protagonist I still root for because of his prodigious intelligence. I’m ashamed of myself for liking him!” — Adam Savage of MythBusters
“It’s bizarre, sick, funny, and more than a little depraved, all of which is part of its charm.” — Nerdist
I respect Jason so much for following his audacious, wild, insane muse. Demon is raw, explosive fun.” — Chester Brown, author of Paying For It
“What can be said is that Shiga (Meanwhile) has woven a tight and tense narrative that keeps readers intrigued and guessing along with Yee, as he endures the mind-bending ramifications of his situation.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review
