YMMV / Spumco Comic Book

  • Awesome Art: For all of the comics problems, the cartoony artwork definitely isn't one of them. The stories are very well drawn and composed (particularly the ones by Jim Smith), are full of exaggerated, fluid and creative poses and expressions, and the lavish inking by Shane Glines is the icing on the cake.
  • Darkness-Induced Audience Apathy: The entire purpose of the comic was to be as gross, offensive and overall deliberately mean as possible purely out of spite for all things political correct. To nobody's surprise, the comic-buying world was not interested.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: As with all of John K.'s work, the comic is far more disturbing in light of his statutory rape scandal.
    • The gags involving jailbait girls in issue #1, such as fanservicey Sody Pop minicomic and Jimmy making the skirts of a few Catholic School Girls fly up, were already gross on purpose but become outright repulsive once you realize that John K. was essentially drawing child pornography for his own use.
    • There were also letter pages asking for "love letters" to the artist. It's not hard to assume exactly what his intentions were there.
  • Nausea Fuel: Needless to say, you might want to bring a barf bag if you read this comic.
    • "Young Jimmy Peels a Scab" has Jimmy do just that, and then store the scab in a milk bottle, which is then drunk by Cigarettes the Cat.
    • Dirty Dog forcing Cigarettes the Cat to pull a turd out of his butt in "Remote Control Jimmy".
    • The silverfish giving birth to hundreds of baby bugs on panel in "Jimmy the Turtle Food Collector".

How well does it match the trope?
