For the record, I got a very grudging “A.”
I feel i want to know more about this story. possibly even read the report.
It’s a comic! Made by the same person who eventually made Invader Zim, in fact. I may have had a weird JTHM phase too. The art was pretty interesting.
not JTHM, the scenario involving it above. like the reactions of the students as the report was being read.
JTHM is a dark and funny read. Jhonen Vasquez is the creator of Invader Zim as well, so if you’re familiar with that you’ll have kind of an idea as to how sardonic and weird his humor is. 😀
Stiffler, if you truly did this… you are my hero.
I was almost expecting the New Testament or something but this is even better.
By the way, is there a “JOH” missing in the last word bubble?
Nope, he goes by Nny
Nope! In the books, Johnny’s shortened name is Nny. 😛
Oh, okay. Haven’t read it and the comic text is all-caps so I was wondering whether the text got cut off or something.
That comic omg. Perfect.
😀 For art class, my friends and I painted a Johnny triptych.
He goes by Nny lol
Nah, the main characters name is NNY 😀
No, his name is Nny
JTHM was my favorite comic in high school, love it
Jude: Nope, he calls himself “Nny” for short. 🙂
GREAT story to do a report on. Much respect. 🙂
I wrote so many reports like this…. and when I got really bored, I illustrated them too.
My teachers were usually pretty amused. But then you had no clue what sort of book I would report on, anything from shakespeare, (with analysis why romeo and juliet was a comedy, because the original notes from the writer included the ages of the characters and frankly, they were stupid kids!) to marvel comics. ^-^ I turned White fang and Call of the Wild into illustrated guides, with carefully cut out paper figures and scenes glued together.
And turned hitch Hiker’s guide into a pop up book! My class really liked that one.
I had a whole bunch of dish towels I gotten from a thrift store and handed to everyone in class, we all went the rest of the day ‘not forgetting our towels’
I was that weirdo, the one that tended to infect the rest of the class with my weirdness.
I think you are my new hero! You are most definitely a froody individual 😀
Oh, that must have been one heck of a book report. LOVE IT!
Now I’m wondering if Mr. Vasquez has done any more comics in the last decade. To google!
he actually has an invader zim comic coming out, and he made squee which had some precursors to invader zim.
Squee’s a bit more than a decade old, though. Closer to two, in fact. Even I Feel Sick is more than 15 years old. He hasn’t done a lot of comics lately. A one-shot collaboration back in 2007, and scattered stories for corporate-owned IP. Seems to be focusing more on TV.
Really? I feel old, was Filler Bunny post zim? Anyway it’s seemed like he hasnt done much for a while, i saw he directed a few music videos for MSI, and I love the episode he did for Bravest Warriors, but i always wondered what he was up to. I’m just glad to have comics from him again.
Sort of, yeah…the first Fillerbunny came out before Invader Zim, but the other two came out after cancellation.
I loved that comic. I would’ve given a report on it A++
Holy shit. 2 of my favorite comics just combined. Lmfao.
my middle school reports consisted of Schindler’s List, gone with the wind, Jane Eyre, half of Shakespeare’s plays and Jurassic Park.
Oh, my gods…this was me in middle school! XD haha, add ‘I Feel Sick’ and ‘Squee’ to that list as well lmao. When Invader Zim came out I was freaking out lol
OMG my hero!! 😀 I already had a TON of respect for you, Stiffler, and now I just have even more because you loved JTHM. Bravo. ^_^
I totally relate to this! Back when I was about 11 I did a book report on The Wasp Factory. Freaked a lot of the teachers out, but I LOVED the book. Got a perplexed ‘A -‘
Jhonen had a Q&A session at the Alternative Press Expo in San Jose back in the mid-90’s. Someone asked what new projects he was working on and he mentioned that he was in talks with Nickelodeon. Everybody laughed. We thought he was joking.
Adult Amber is like :O and is sorry for that teacher. Teenage Amber is like, “You’re cool, I guess, tiny person.” Seventh Grade Amber is like, “I am utterly horrified. I’m going to read The Last Unicorn and pretend such things don’t exist.”
Props to your teacher. She might not have liked to give you the A, but she gave you permission to choose that book and you did the work, so… XD
7th grade times, when the school librarian introduced me to the silence of the lambs:)
Oh. My. JTHM and Squee are two of my all time favourites ever!
I love JTHM!!! Best book report choice.
I… Actually also wrote a report on JTHM in seventh grade. And yes, reluctant A. I did ask if graphic novels were okay and she did say yes. >_>
