is a fairly unkown webcomic by Mike "Grimwit" Rojas.
It follows the adventures of Saffron Sativus, who happens to be the feared serial killer, Jack Splatter. These include encounters with a copy cat serial killer, the anti-christ, Sherry (a masochist who wants to die), and many other people besides. The story is fairly complex, but it's easy enough to forget the story when Saffron is brutally butchering her latest victim.
The comic also occasionally takes breaks to show the life of Joy's Shoulder Devil
, including her training at the hands of Devil Slash and various other misadventures in Hell.
If you like Gorn, than you'll probably enjoy this comic. Otherwise... You might want to give it a miss.Find it here
