A darkly humorous [[http://www.choppingblock.org webcomic]] by Lee Adam Herold documenting [[WebcomicsLongRunners since 2000]] the single-panel exploits of Butch R. Mann, a hockey mask-wearing serial killer who is equal parts "[[Franchise/FridayThe13th Jason Voorhees]], Hannibal Lecter, [[Film/{{Psycho}} Norman Bates,]] and Ziggy." Most of the humor of the strip comes from taking typical horror and slasher tropes, then bringing them to the most ludicrous possible applications. The strip is notable for both its gag skill in CrossingTheLineTwice, and its unique gray-toned art style that is both inked and sponged before being scanned into the computer.
