Here come two more slices of nightmare life from Terror Tales Vol. 4 No. 6 to keep you ammused into the wee small hours after midnight.First up is an educational fable about fate called "The Strange Escape;" which features some of the best Eerie Pub. art from Cirilo Munoz I have seen."Fate," wrote Euripides bluntly, "is stronger than anything I have known." Indeed, and if you ever find yourself escaping prison (and don't imagine it can't happen), you will be best served to remember the ancient playwright's words - particularly if your escape route bisects a graveyard full of robed men. Simply amazing inking here by Mr. Munoz. Download THIS POST!
Our second story, "The Vampire Witch," features a feckless hero - one of those men born to be abused by women. Hell's bells, even a witch can't resist laying into poor Hector with a good, swift kick in the nuts upon meeting him (I'm a witch, stupid!). Oscar Fraga supplies the art in this one. I love that last panel of this story. Want a good laugh? Play out in your mind the scene following as the guard attempts to administer the jury's sentence.
Today's theme dealt with the way the harsh, iron grip of fate rests so heavily upon the soft flesh of us mortals; gripping our wrists and ankles like shackles until death offers our only egress. Next post: "The Walking Dead" & "Demons and Vampires" from this same issue. Until then, spend pleasant hours plotting the horrible downfall of anyone you even suspect has ever wronged you.
