Just Plain Nasty

Recommended Posts

Inspired by some of the posts in the Trades Thread, what've been the nastiest scenes in Hellblazer ?

 

I'll start with - the demon similarcum in Vertigo Jam spits the tip of a cock at Constantine.

Mnemoth's scenes from Original Sins always has my skin creeping.

That fella getting his balls blown off in "Confessions of An Irish Rebel."

 

Or watching a fourteen-year-old boy getting spattered with cum as he's anally violated by an enormous demon dog.

 

Tom - Brett Ewins did Skreemer, I think.

Christ, I'd forgotten about that.

 

John slipping his fingers inside his slashed jugular in Damnation's Flame.

All good ones.

I have to add the scene of the victim of the Ebola virus from Campbell's "Warped Notions". Diseases always creep me out more than anything, and I really did NOT need to see that scene.....

Having someone stick a shotgun up your homeboy's ass and then blows his innards all over your face and coat.

 

Spoilers for the Ennis/Dillon HB Special

 

I always thought it was real fucked up when ol Reverand Tolley forced himself on a young John. John knees him in the head and knocks the razor blade into his face. So you think Tolley was trying to force a blowjob on John but castration looked more the MO here.

The first couple of pages of Hellblazer #152 (part two of Good Intentions) when Ritchie is breakin some bloke's teeth out with a pipe presumably for forceable oral sex has always forced a grimace with me.

All this is one of the reasons I love this comic so much. The glorious gore :biggrin:

 

I would agree with the 'all of Son of Man' message and add the two closeup aftermath shots of people being horrendously beaten and mutilated - the pimp in the "Rake at the Gates of Hell' arc and wotzizname the ghetto kid in the arc about fascists. Gave me a shock both times.

The confessions of the dead Japanese military man in #142 (Setting Sun) was pretty brutal especially since they were all probably true life tales from the Japanese occupation of Manchuria, China.

The confessions were nicked from a film called Men Behind the Sun. Or possibly from a review of that film in UK mag Bizarre. All but one of the sequences were taken from a plot summary of that film in their Japanese special.

 

SPOILERS FOR JENKINS' "THE DAYS OF WINE AND ROSES"

 

 

 

Another gruesome bit - a young girl vomiting up chunks of her cannibalised father into the toilet.

To paraphrase - "No, that's just horrible".

 

Has anyone managed to out-gore Ennis then ?

 

I think John Higgins panels of the guys who fuck with Map in Haunted are gorier than anything I've ever seen in an Ennis HB story.

Yeah but that's just standard physical gore. The brutality of making someone suffer affects me more than just bodies being exploded.

 

I think had Warren Ellis decided to stay on his run would've been the most brutal ever seen on Hellblazer. Not violent but brutal.

that coke baby was creepy... and i liked the first tpb bits - the US soldiers raping and killing their own families... Waiting for the Man was also EEEEEERIE!

 

 

but maybe i'm biased, since i'm currently translating the first HB trade into serbian <img src="http://hellblazer.ipbhost.com/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/icon_razz.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":p" border="0" alt="icon_razz.gif" />

I am going to agree with the way Isabel died in "Haunted" and the grotesque "mother" Harry Cooper right before he gave birth to the fuckpig.

 

I'll also add JFK constantly having to keep his brains inside his head in "Fear and Loathing." Atter a while, seeing him in every frame with his hand up to his head keeping in his brains just sort of got to me--not that bad--but enough to make me shudder a bit.

 

ALso, and I can't remember the particular issue (one of Ellis'?), when John comes to the flat where the man is inside with his murder victimes just rotting; he killed them because the room is haunted, or something like that? I've got it on the shelf but I'm too lazy at this point to get up and look.

Locked has a nasty little drawing of a chewed-off nipple lying in a pool of blood in front of the door to the room... a tiny "blink-and-you'll-miss-it" shot, but effective nonetheless.
