Murder Can Be Fun Comics

Issues 6 + 7

Slave Labor

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
