In this chapter, Christopher Kilgore analyzes venomous and abusive masculinities as drawn-out temporal trauma in some of Gaiman and McKean's darker works, Violent Cases and The Tragical Comedy or Comical Tragedy of Mr. Punch. The chapter goes on to argue that the strange temporalities in these two books portray and critique a hereditary culture of domestic and public masculine violence, putting Gaiman and McKean in line with other critical work of the 1980s and '90s graphic narrative renaissance and at odds with the traditional masculinities prevalent in mainstream comics.
