drawn and quartered

SpamAssassin catches the vast majority of spam sent to me nowadays. Today, however, an e-mail slipped through from a cartoonist seeking work to draw custom cartoons to provide for company newsletters, etc.. His message included four sample cartoons from his portfolio, of which the above cartoon was one. Isn't this cartoon a little freaky, especially for a company newsletter? I mean, isn't a usual rule for company newsletters not to have cartoons that depict blood spurting out of someone's eye? Besides which, is this cartoon even, in any sense, funny, even for those of us whose sense of humor readily runs into the macabre? And this is supposed to be one of the four best examples of this guy's work?
