No matter how hard he tries, Jimmy Yee cannot die. A noose around his neck, a razor across his wrist, and even a bullet to his head all yield the same results: each time he awakes, miraculously unharmed, in his shabby room at the Sunbeam Motel. For reasons he doesn't understand, Jimmy has just become the world's most dangerous man. Using only his mathematics training and his complete lack of scruples, Jimmy must push himself to his mental limits to stay one step ahead of the elite team of intelligence operatives devoted to the single goal of capturing him alive. From the brilliant and profane mind of Jason Shiga comes Demon: a four-volume magnum opus about the unspeakable chaos that one indestructible man can unleash on the world and the astronomical body count he leaves behind.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Thanks to the overarching conundrum and Shiga's sparse, cartoony style, the gore and nihilism manage to be simultaneously gloomy and cute." --NPR, from their "Guide to 2016's Great Reads" list

"I truly think Demon is one of the best comics that has come out in the last few years. It's surprising, unique, and insanely well crafted." --Brian Michael Bendis, author of the Ultimate Spider-Man series

"Jason Shiga has done something remarkable with Demon: created a surpassing morally repugnant protagonist I still root for because of his prodigious intelligence. I'm ashamed of myself for liking him!" --Adam Savage of MythBusters

"It's bizarre, sick, funny, and more than a little depraved, all of which is part of its charm." --Nerdist

I respect Jason so much for following his audacious, wild, insane muse. Demon is raw, explosive fun." --Chester Brown, author of Paying For It

"What can be said is that Shiga (Meanwhile) has woven a tight and tense narrative that keeps readers intrigued and guessing along with Yee, as he endures the mind-bending ramifications of his situation."--Publishers Weekly, starred review

"[Shiga] set out to make a dynamic comic, one that would both encourage and facilitate readers to turn the page again and again...The result is something goofy, funny, harrowing, and exciting in a way that action comics rarely--if ever--achieve." --A.V. Club

"Deeply uncomfortable and utterly brilliant." --Gene Luen Yang, author of American Born Chinese, Boxers & Saints, and the Secret Coders series

"Awesome! And horrifying. But mostly awesome!" --Zach Weinersmith, author of Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal

"Shiga's simplistic cartoon style helps soften the blow; with his characters' bug eyes and rounded structures, murder and suicide have never looked so adorable" --Booklist
