The story starts as follows:
In a darkened parking lot, a swinish punk in a HELLBOY T-Shirt drives a sledgehammer into the stomach of a gauntn sable-haired old man in tasteful tweeds. Spit flies. So do the old man’s glasses. A second punk, a spiky-haired feeb with bad complexion and no chin, stands in the background, pumping a fist in excitement. Beside him, a junkyard dog leaps ecstatically.
The old man slumps against the fender of a car, his expression a grimace of strain; it must take a great deal of effort to hold in a scream. We can’t see the punks, but are privy to their hysterical, gibbering conversation.
· Smoke and Mirrors is large oversized hardcover from Cemetery Dance and all story are scripts.
