Complex magazine -- whose Design Director, Tim Leong, was the former Editor-in-Chief of Comic Foundry magazine -- has assembled a list of the 40 most brutally violent comics EVAR. Those with weak stomachs should take care, as it features a number of heads getting severed, flayed, and blown up like ripe tomatoes, but all you "Punisher MAX" fans are gonna love it.

The piece was written by ComicsAlliance contributor Chris Sims with trivia by other ComicsAlliance writer John Parker for added excellence. While it's hard to argue with their pick for #1, I'm sure some people will, so there are up and down arrows to register your (dis)pleasure with the rankings.

Feel free to insert your "But what about ____?!?!?" here.
