Murder Can Be Fun Comics
Issues 6 + 7
Published by John Marr (no relation to the Smiths’ Johnny Marr), the original Murder Can Be Fun (P.O. Box 630111, San Francisco, CA 94164) details all manner of well-researched exotic, gruesome and stupefying ways to die. Perfect for adaptation into a comic book!
Issue #6 deals with zoo-related deaths, while #7 focuses on the ill-conceived notions of “innocent children.” Both collect several stories, each one illustrated by a different comic artist, and a closing editorial from Mr. Marr himself. Highly entertaining, if you have a dark, dark sense of humor, and guaranteed to raise concerned looks from visiting relatives. Slave Labor Graphics, 979 S. Bascom Ave., San Jose, CA 95128
