YMMV: Dylan Dog
  • Anvilicious: Often the series' fantastic Aesops are like that.
  • Fanon Discontinuity: Most fans like to pretend the 2010 movie never existed.
  • Magnificent Bastard: Xabaras.
  • Memetic Sex God: Dylan.
  • Moment Of Awesome: Dylan's encounter with Xabaras at the end of "Morgana". He pick up a broadsword from the wall and beheads Xabaras. Sadly he got better thanks to Morgana.
    Dylan: "THE ANGEL OF REVENGE HAS RETURNED! AND NOW HAS A SWORD!!!"
    • Also all the last part of volume 100. Alias Dylan, the Good side of Xabaras and Morgana kicking the shit out of the zombie minions of Xabaras, who is eventually vanquished.
  • Nightmare Fuel: It's a horror comic, what did you expect?
  • Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped: To the series' credit, they did drop them.
  • Tear Jerker: "Johnny Freak". Johnny is a deaf abandoned child without legs, found by Dylan. The child displays amazing intelligence (he learned how to read lips and to speak, albeit badly) artistic abilities, and forms a bond with Dylan and Groucho. Then things go downhill as his origins are revealed: he's the illegitimate son of the Arkham family, born deaf but otherwise sane, while his legitimate brother Dougal was born with a degenerative illness. The Arkhams then used Johnny's organs and limbs to replace his brother's when they started failing, while otherwise keeping Johnny trapped in the basement. For years. How the story ends? Dougal shoots Johnny because he loathes him as a "freak", then has a heart attack. As Dylan is at Johnny's death bed, Johnny's last request to him is to give his heart to Dougal in order to save him. Dylan almost refuses to do so, but can't bring himself to betray what effectively is his own son.
  • The Untwist: Lampshaded in an issue where an ex policewoman is haunted by what seems the ghost of a criminal she helped capture and execute. When Dylan suggests it may be a twin who wants to avenge his dead brother, Bloch replies he's not heard such a trite idea since '48. In the end it turns out it was a band of six twins.
