Bad Boy is a one-shot comic book by Frank Miller and Simon Bisley and published by Oni Press.

Publication history

The story was originally published as a 44-page prestige format comic book.

It was republished in July 2008 in hardcover format by Dynamite Entertainment with two covers, one by Bisley (ISBN 1-933305-54-1) and the other by Miller (ISBN 1-933305-79-7).

Plot

Frank Miller and Simon Bisley's Bad Boy follows the story of Jason, a young boy who comes to realize that the couple he thinks are his parents aren't his parents at all, and his world isn't what it seems to be.

Many aspects of Jason's adventures seem to symbolically note the imprisonment of contemporary life, and the sacrifice of personal identity which comes with societal conformity.
