It’s all rather hilarious, with more Vasquez satire and off-kilter humor, but is there more to Squee than just a small boy afraid of the many things in the big, ugly world outside his window that can do him harm? For example, Todd is invited to a “play date” with Pedro He gets abducted by aliens and they don’t even notice or care. That said, I think that Vasquez ‘s comics hold an important historical context. Before I get hate mail, I get it. Squee has only one friend, albeit a possibly imaginary one, the dilapidated teddy bear affectionately referred to as Shmee. But you also find truly entertaining jewels.

Squee still has a lot of dark humor, though, which is amazing. It’s all rather hilarious, with more Vasquez satire and off-kilter humor, but is there more to Squee than just a small boy afraid of the many things in the big, ugly world outside his window that can do him harm?
Squee’s mother is addicted to some form of pill and spends a lot of time lying around in a nearly incoherent state. No injury ever comes to Squee; maybe the point is that we scare ourselves too easily, or that even if things can potentially harm us we ought to wondwrful a bit more backbone than we do.
Much like my review of Jhonen Vasquez’s Wlnderful Cut edition of Johnny the Homicidal Maniac, I would have given this book 5 out of 5 stars but I took a star off because little disappointments like the lack of the original covers of the individual issues, collecting the comic shorts like Wobbly Headed Bob and Meanwhiles in their own biy at the end of the book instead of in their original places in the initial comics.
Shmee has some extremely disturbing nightmares for one so young as well. All the elements of the show are there, just rearranged. You can also see a lot of fumbling around unspeakxble he tries to find his stride. I definitely enjoyed this book more than JTHM. Still, it looks really funny. Squee is the neighbour of “Johnny the Homicidal Maniac,” who lives next door.

This black and white collection of SQUEE comics is twisted and at moments sad but yet manages unspexkable be light and funny. Squee is also a more relaxing, easier to focus on read than JTHM.
I definitely agree with the last panel ending for that one, since he does make the simplest of observations that is also quite true: He’s just too apple-faced adorable.
Later that night Shmee goes missing, and when Squee goes to investigate his whereabouts he finds him outside his bedroom where he is met by some scary looking aliens. It is horrific, but not in a horror movie sort of way. This one begins with Squee awkwardly praying on his father’s behalf.
Sep 16, Sara rated it it was amazing Shelves: The Aliens did spooooooky things to my head. The poor little protagonist views the outside world as exactly that and yearns to living a life of his own away from scary reality.
While Johnny had a continuing story and it seemed like there was some sort of actual point being made occasionally for suqees reader to think about, this is just half random awful things happening to Squee, and then half even more random strips that don’t really have anything to do with Squee at all.
Seriously the dust mites are nightmare fuel. Wikiquote has quotations related to: Perhaps Unspeaable try to hunt down a compendium of his as well. Have to say it’s a pretty big let down. Jun 27, Shanna rated it really liked it Shelves: Squee is about Johnny’s young neighbor, a little boy who is perpetually terrified of everything around him.
