ASSASSIN'S NIGHT:A DEEPER DARKNESS is an animated graphic novel by Lawrence Van Abbema. NSFW drawin's of nekkidness and violence. Looks like someone has way too much free time in study hall.

This guy needs a writer, fast. If you ignore the flash roll-over stuff then the rest of the panels are almost acceptable. What elevates it above normal bad into the realm of atrocious bad is the blunt, adolescent sexual overtones. It's very, "dude, I totally shot the guy, and then I had sex with a stripper! And a hooker! Dude!"

Of course, he was published, albeit in High Times Magazine, so what do I know?

It's like you can see the tiniest kernel of talent under this, corrupted and taken over completely by Throbbing Male Urges. So high school it hurts, but the saddest part is that the High Times comic was done in '94 which would seem to indicate that he's an adult now.

Hey assassin guy, Steve Perry's on the phone, he wants his haircut back!

Wow. I've seen some bad stuff (Some of my friends are really in

To see how this would be drawn if the artist had talent, a writer, and a twisted sense of humor, check out Under Power. (Potentially not safe for work.)

Eh, sorry, half-finished comment, half-working brain. (Some of my friends are really into web comics, and there's some pretty awful comics out there. There's some pretty amazing ones, too.)

Reminds me of Garth Marenghi, somehow.

this was probably taken from Memepool.

Maybe second or third hand, but I got it the old fashioned way - someone forwarded it to me. Sorry, snarky.
