The "Arseface origin special" showed that Sheriff Root hated his son for one specific reason: everyone he knew could brag about their children and he couldn't. There were probably other reasons, Also, the Root Boy's classmates hated him because they hated Sheriff Root and they couldn't beat up Sheriff Root.

The wife's "Dear John" letter, while proving her to be just an awful human being (just -awful-), takes a delightful parting shot at old Sheriff Root.

Arseface was translated in Brazil as Cara-de-cu. Same meaning, but cu is a swearword of the taboo-est possible category; even in an adult comic and among other swearwords, back then it felt funny to even see it in print like that. It was of course the right choice, and I commend whoever it was who probably had to to argue a lot to get it published.

Next to last scan, last panel... gotta love Cassidy's reaction there.

And has Arseface appeared on the show yet? I'm just curious how it translates to real-life. Everyone in the story basically throws up at the sight of him, but he doesn't seem THAT bad to me.... but then, it is a comic, so maybe it's grosser in real life?

Just one of those things I always wondered about.

...Wow. Not only is his post-trauma deformity much less extreme, but when I cover up the subtitles I can understand everything he's saying, unlike in the comic where for the most part I (like most readers) would be lost if there weren't any subtitles. It doesn't help that the only vowel sound Arseface can make in the comic is "uh." Compare Mazikeen's dialogue in The Sandman and the earlier issues of Lucifer series one, before Jill gives her a normal human face. With her, it's possible to tease out what she's saying because it's her consonants that get distorted.

Also... holy shit, TV!Jesse. That's even worse than your comic-book counterpart unthinkingly using the Word on Sherrif Root when telling him to go fuck himself.

He's got a much bigger part in the show, so they made him more relatable and sympathetic. I think it was a good choice, because in the comic he's literally the butt of a thousand jokes. In the show, he's a genuinely nice kid who keeps getting shit on by fate.

In that clip you see Preacher saying Eugene has no right to condemn him for being a sinner... but we've since seen what really happened at the shooting, and you realize Eugene is a tragic victim.

Who now has Hitler as a cellmate.

Are people still throwing up at the sight of him, though? That's what my whole question kind of hinges on.

I mean, in the book, he doesn't look that bad to me, and even less so in the show. If people are still throwing up, that would just feel absurd... he looks like a kid who's sucked his lips into his mouth to make a funny face, only a bit more so.

No, no vomiting at this point. In the first season, people's typical response to seeing him was anger, because the townspeople reacted to the story of what happened, not his appearance. Most felt like he got what he deserved.

We haven't seen him outside of the town, except for Hell.

I saw a documentary about twenty years ago about a kid who failed a suicide pact with a buddy and took his own face off with a shotgun. He finished the job between the time the documentary was filmed and released. It doesn't take a lot for people to be considered a monster in our society.
