A fan comic based on the Hotline Miami games, created by Dennaton. Carl, the character with the mantis mask and the power drill, showed up as a dead body in Hotline Miami 1, but had no history.

This is that story - which was made into official Hotline Miami canon by one of the Dennaton creators! Story by Austin Wilson and DC Hopkins, scripted by Austin Wilson, illustrated and colored by Cera Kelly, and lettered/designed by DC Hopkins. Read it here.
