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 #6: Grave Robbing
Disinterment. Theft. Exhumation and ossuaries. Unspeakable crimes. Corpses of the past (events, relationships, ideas, cultures and cities). What inappropriate, grim and morbid things or people do we long for when they
are gone? What incites one to dig up the dead, reanimate the deceased or dig through decayed remains in search of some treasured item, memory or ideal? In what horrific ways do we serve as the archaeologists of our own fates and futures?

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.
