I don’t get where we’re going.

We’re going to Wheeless to see John Hood. 

You said that. I just don’t get it. 

What don’t you get?

We got twelve dollars between the four of us and a Buick that might or might not make it another hundred miles. But instead of going west like everyone else we’re going north to Wheeless to see some crazy preacher.

Seems like you get it just fine. 

Damn it, Dustin, when you’re down to your last dime you spend it on food. You don’t throw it away hoping for a miracle. 

You’re wrong. When you’re down to your last dime, hoping for a miracle’s the best you got.

Excuse Me, But I Think You’re In My Seat
(And Other Observations)
𖥔
By Brian Polk
Art by Kristen Michael

Ever get behind a slow walker and think, so this is what it’s like not to have anxiety? The worst is when there’s two people walking at a snail’s pace in front of you, and you’re desperately trying to figure out how to get around them on such a small sidewalk. My cerebral matter would be absolutely furious with me if I ever attempted to walk that slow.”

Wood of the Wendigo
𖥔
By Gray Winsler
Art by Jonathan Dodd
& Peter Glanting

Something wretched lives inside me now. The natives here speak of a sickness that comes over men who eat another’s flesh, turning them into some unholy abomination. I can feel the sickness crawl in my skin now, which boils with a heat no fever could produce. But as I write this, I see my children by the hearth, full for the first time in weeks. Though my sin may never be forgiven, know that I would do it all over again.

WEREWOLF RADAR:
Thor Always On My Mind
𖥔
By Nate Balding
Art by James Hattaway

Oh, I didn’t notice you there. You look like you’re wondering who, or what, is Valiant Thor. If you thought, “band you’ve heard of,” you’re super wrong while being technically right. In time many bands will be known as “Valiant Thorr” but ours is to explore the legacy of the enigmatic specter who may or may not have directed the Pentagon, the president and NASA toward the discovery of alien life. Valiant (Val to his pals) was, in fact, very possibly an extraterrestrial himself.
