  • Order MYSTERIUS #5, I Say

    the sad issue

    Written by Jeff Parker; Art and cover by Tom Fowler

    From all over North America, thousands make the pilgrimage to a hot, rocky desert to express themselves in every way imaginable for a week. They gather (somewhat naked) around a towering wooden man who will burn a hole in reality and make a human into a god. Inside that sacrificial effigy are the imprisoned souls known as Mysterius the Great and Delfi the Assistant. 

    And they have to go to the bathroom.

    This is my favorite Fowler cover yet. And the poort little imps are skeletal at the bottom.

    And not just from knowing “Wicker Man” by the lousy Neil LaBute-Nic Cage remake either …
