Issue #8: Killer Clowns & Freak Shows
Devious tricksters, pernicious Punch and Judy, rampaging Juggalos, morally bankrupt Bozos and the jingling, painted jester of your childhood nightmares. Harloty harlequins, tormented human marvels, caged oddities and cruel ringmasters, evil Elephant men and all the sexy, bloody tragedy you can muster.
Issue #7: Fairy Tales, Gods and Monsters
Morality can be so Grimm, its whispered tales of forests dark and dreary and filled with dread. It's not a place for children. And the children of the gods, those fey creatures of mythology are twisted, twisted, inside and out. Monsters, every one. Come, now. Drop your breadcrumbs and thread your yarn along the way. But mind you keep to the path. The wolves await you.
Issue #4: Ouroboros
What is the ouroboros?
The snake that bites its own tail. Cycles and circles; birth and rebirth. Cannibalism and devouring. Self begetting self. Stories that have no beginning and no end, and the ending that begins a new, but yet more terrible cycle/self.
