Quotes: Psychopathic Manchild

Anime and Manga

Tick was a kind man. He was a supremely innocent person, one who had no business associating with the mafia. But he had one talent: He was very, very good at hurting and torturing people.

So he's like a child with superhuman capabilites. And really, there's nothing more pure and cruel as a child.
Jet Black talking about Mad Pierrot

Comic Books

Paulie Skinner could sleep forever. This leave had been that long in coming. It'd been due after Gotham, but nooooo: they needed a napalm specialist in Honduras training Contras, and he was it. Finally then, home to Connecticut; mom; his old room; that old peach tree outside...as his mother tucks him in, the killer sighs. Slippering softly from the room, she says she'll bring him cocoa later, if he's still awake, and the killer says "Thanks, ma."
