I stopped at a truck stop to take drain the lizard. Nothing that would normally be noteworthy, right? But while standing at the urinal, I saw something that caught my eye. A phrase etched into the wall that read “Mr Deadman Made Me Do It”. Was this referencing the song “Turn Me On, Mr. Deadman” or was this in reference to Deadman’s Tome?
What if the phrase wasn’t referencing either, but something else, something much darker and more obscure?
I still don’t know the answer to that, but I was inspired to have some fun with it. I called for stories themed around the idea of a Mr. Deadman causing people to go mad and do horrible, monstrous things, and boy did people deliver. While the issue is shorter than most, rocking eight short stories, the content serves the cover well!
Why take my word for it when you can look inside for yourself?
