and Chronic, the bumbling crime fighting aliases of Jay and
Silent Bob get to appear in yet another inane graphic novel.
This time around we get to see the origins of a number of
in Book-Em asylum are a number of lunatics, all with a grudge
to bear. All of them want Bluntman and Chronic dead because
in a plot idea lifted straight from Tim Burton's Batman
movie they were all separately deformed in separate accidents
involving large vats of green acid and our amazing duo.
was good to see the appearance of Cock Knocker, possibly one
of Hollywood's more subtle arch enemies, as well as Dickhead,
Diddler, Newsgroup and Lipstick Lesbian - all very mature
and cleverly thought out villains (hmmmm!)
that is what is so lovable about this series. It is extremely
immature and crude to the point of making you ill with disbelief.
There is plenty of swearing and sexist remarks (courtesy of
Jay). But ultimately this is damn funny stuff.
novel borrows heavily from Batman. As mentioned earlier
the birth of a number of Bluntman and Chronic's foes has been
borrowed from the movie birth of the Joker. An interesting
point was raised about how the Penguin managed to get hold
of the Batmobile plans in the Batman Returns movie.
And there is a great mock cover of the DC comics cover for
the death of Robin issue.
you wet your pants at Jay and Silent Bob Strikes Back,
then you are going to love this! I am still laughing.
