EXPOSURE THERAPY
BY GRAY WINSLER W/ART BY AUSTIN PARKHILL

“We’re dead,” Nervil said, looking through a window etched with frost to a blinding expanse of white.

“Easy, Nervil. It’s just a blizzard. It’ll pass,” Avery said as their shelter groaned under the unrelenting force of the wind.

“And then what?” Nervil shivered. “You saw the radio tower for this place. We’ve no way to let anyone know we’re here.”

“We’ll figure something out,” Avery bent down to rub his hands in front of the tiny gas-powered heater they’d found. It was already half empty.

WEREWOLF RADAR: MEN IN BLECCH
NATE BALDING W/ART BY CAITLYN GRABENSTEIN

The Men in Black continue to harass our agents in the field, trying to hide the alien truths with brute force. Despite cinematic representation they are neither oddly paternal nor anachronistically Fresh. By all indications they typically stand over 6 feet tall in skinny, pale bodies with features heavily manicured by lipstick. Most of the encounters were not Robert Smith. Research into their origin in the hopes that we might find a vulnerability continues without concrete development.

A LITTLE FROM COLUMN ONE, A LITTLE FROM COLUMN TWO
BY BRIAN POLK W/ART BY JASON WHITE

People who don’t shovel the snow off their sidewalks in the winter really anger me. As a pedestrian, I’m often incredulous that anyone could be so callous. I mean, what, do they not care about my safety? Do they want the elderly and folks with disabilities to slip and injure themselves? HAVE THEY NO DECENCY! I MEAN, WE LIVE IN A SOCIETY, GOD DAMNIT! DO THEY THINK THEY CAN JUST COAST ALONG AND JUST NOT CARE ABOUT ANYONE BUT THEMSELVES? IT TAKES SIX MINUTES TO SHOVEL A SIDEWALK! SIX MINUTES! HOW DAMMED PRECIOUS IS THEIR TIME ANYWAY!?!

REARVIEW
BY ERIN BROOKINS W/ART BY DYLAN FOWLER

“Have any of you noticed that the same car has been following us for four blocks now? Four whole blocks. That creepy gray sedan. I wish I could see the driver.”
“We’ve just been going straight for the last four blocks ...”
“But did you notice when it started following us? It was sitting at that four-way stop with its lights off for who knows how long. I thought it was abandoned, but then we drove past and it pulled out and started following us.”

THE GOBLET OF BEYADON
BY JOEL TAGERT W/ART BY ALI HOFF

When Rekkon saw the black tentacles spilling from the temple gateway, he stopped and sighed heavily, shoulders slumping. Every damn time.
He didn’t think he’d encountered this particular denizen of the dark before, but it was hard to say. There were a lot of tentacled beasties out there, all with delusions of grandeur, and when you made a living retrieving misplaced weapons and other dangerous artifacts from the far corners of the galaxy, they tended to make a nuisance of themselves.
He unwrapped a cough drop and popped it in his mouth while he considered his options.

WHILE IN THE WILD WEST
BY BEE LB W/ART WITH MOON PATROL

do as the Romans do. Isn’t that how it goes?
So let’s fast. We’ve got plenty of food at home. There’ll
be plenty more when I’m through. I shaped myself
myself; took my face in my hands and pulled. Pried open
my mouth, wiggled my tongue, saw how far my lips could stretch.
I would’ve made a great rodeo clown. An even better buckin’ bronc.
