Die, My Darling!

I suppose I could make some micro-penis analogies, or even reference a particular Misfits song here, but neither of those things would really do this bonkers yarn the justice it deserves.

From the March 1952 issue of Journey into Fear #6

Boy, Maxwell was a pretty irredemable fellow, wasn't he? I was kind of hoping for a even more unpleasant fate for him...

Holy crap. Every time I think I've seen the weirdest Karswell has to offer...

Great stuff. I love the splash screens with the giant women and the small men--again, I've got to wonder about the psychological make-up of the writers and artists here, and their home lives.

But Max, what a terrible character, huh? He tries to rape a native, gets her eaten by a lion, then tells the story to entertain his friends at cocktail parties! What a hoot...I guess...

Yeah, he does get off a little easy. The witch doctor could have taken a tip from the dummy idea and shrunk the tiger down and put it inside Max's head. Voila! One Fulci Special: Cat in the brain!

Sometimes I surprise even myself.

Wow.that was one F-ed up little story,and it's even funnier if you read Max's dialogue in the voice of Hans from FREAKS.and the scenes of Maxwell killing a girl with a hammer kinda seems a little familiar...like a song i heard...

>Maxwell killing a girl with a hammer
