"Fatal Scalpel" & "The Corpse Came Home"

“Which way I fly is Hell; myself am Hell; And in the lowest deep a lower deep Still threat'ning to devour me opens wide, To which the Hell I suffer seems a Heav'n”
Satan - Paradise Lost by John Milton

In other words, here come two more loathsome, slim-green yarns from Tales From The Tomb Vol. 1 No. 7.

First comes a tale of a surgeon who flourishes his scalpel with an artistic grace. Yet artistic genius can quiver on the edge of madness like a slug on the slicing side of a bowie knife. When one slips and falls from the blade - well, then we have the plummet into Milton's "lower deep" don't we? Remember, regardless wether ranting mad or icy sane, one can still have the soul of an artist.

This Iger shop beauty begins with a splash panel of pure heavenly hell. Really, fair souls, if you look at that splash and don't feel an electric tingling dancing over your skin like tiny, epileptic fire ants; you may need to recalibrate. Download: Both Stories!

Our second story, "The Corpse Came Home", promises a much hotter and more contented afterlife than many can enjoy while alive. If it takes a passage through the pearly gates for a workable Ménage à trois (without being French), I'd say it's worth considering.

Want the color, original version? Well, for God's sake, satiate yourself! visit Karswell!

So, that puts to rest another pair of bedtime stories for this post. Now, it's time for you to sleep. Sleep. Sleeeeeep.

I actually have the first one in an anthology. I LOVE the inking but the size of those eyes are disturbing. Great Post, once again!

sorry, "is disturbing'.

Guy: Yes they are! As you say, the inking is incredible!

i think "The Corpse Came Home" is a visualization of a wishful fantasy on the part of the writer/artist! some of these tales have the feeling of someone not censoring themselves and giving away some dark secret...

Mykal said...

Prof.: And what a wonderful dark secret it is!
