Original Comic (Short-Story): "Horror-Man"
1 Attachment(s)
I wanted to create a synopsis-presentation for a larger comic storyboard I've been working on, one that is inspired by the works of Clive Barker and focuses on a new age interest in pure flesh-themed horror-adventure comics-oriented storytelling (in the tradition of Spawn).


A new superhuman emerged onto the urban scene of modern Los Angeles, and he called himself 'Horror-Man.' His critics wondered if a vigilante should don such a 'radical' name, since it might create panic among the masses, but the hero was convinced that radical action was exactly what was necessary. Horror-Man wanted to deal with a new criminal element in L.A. (in the year 2020) calling itself 'Black Mask.'

Black Mask was an 'egalitarian' narcotics-gang primarily but it also dealt with black market munitions networks in Moscow. Black Mask rotated leadership, so no one could try to assassinate a 'figurehead' to make the entire gang vulnerable. Black Mask employed tactics nothing short of pure hell. Black Mask members carried machetes and chainsaws and used them to rip LAPD cops to shreds, decapitate them, or even split them in half (from the genitals up to the neck in some cases!).

When Black Mask was suspected in the murder of three female LAPD police officers (burning two of them alive and splitting the other one in half!) on Halloween Eve, Horror-Man knew he donned the appropriate name for himself (since he would have to deal with the pure hellish 'horror' of modern L.A. in the year 2020). Horror-Man immediately began dismantling Black Mask, assassinating members left-and-right (with his handy silencer-pistol). Horror-Man would shoot Black Mask ghouls in the right-eye (as a signature 'marking' of his vigilantism achievement).

The LAPD regarded Horror-Man as a new age 'Messiah,' though politicians felt much more critical of endorsing a 'rogue vigilante' to deal with L.A.'s newest menace. One politician went so far as to argue that fighting fire with fire would only make evil enlarge. Horror-Man ignored his critics and proceeded to attack Black Mask right at the throat. Horror-Man even found one warehouse-lair of Black Mask (where cocaine was being processed) and burned it (and everyone in it!) to the ground.

Finally, Horror-Man killed the last two surviving members of Black Mask by the end of his year-long 'crusade,' shooting them both in the right-eye with his silencer-pistol. Horror-Man wore a fancy helmet and cape to designate himself as a 'spiritual prophet,' and LAPD officers continued to commend him for his offbeat heroics. When a female LAPD officer asked Horror-Man why he felt his radical tactics were so appropriate, Horror-Man coldly and calmly explained to her, "Destroying a purely evil gang using machetes and chainsaws requires nothing less than absolute wrath." Horror-Man would be remembered as the 'Real Punisher.'

Chapter 2: Horror-Man meets Carnage
1 Attachment(s)
I like how comics and horror-comics speak to a new age angst towards urbanization-management, and this second chapter was inspired by Spawn and Cobra. There's also a nod to the Marvel Comics super-villain Carnage, though I've altered the character for this original story.


Horror-Man was happy with his newfound celebrity-status and being on the cover of TIME magazine. Everyone was calling him the 'real Punisher.' There was a comic book craze in Hollywood, and film-makers wanted to make a movie-adaptation of Horror-Man's feats. Amidst all this fun and excitement, a new menace rose to prominence --- Carnage.

Carnage was once a regular psycho named Clyde Karns but a chemistry accident turned his body into a very malleable mass of flesh, and he could extend his arms to great lengths and exert force with impressive strength. Carnage also had protruding claws, which he used (believe it or not!) to pierce the groins/vaginas of female cops (his special target!) and let them bleed to death! Horror-Man had a new enemy...

Horror-Man ('HM') wanted first and foremost to put an end to Carnage's reign which included the bizarre ritualistic killings of female cops. Horror-Man used an electric-net to trap and stun Carnage to the state of unconsciousness. He then dragged him to a warehouse (abandoned) where he could interrogate the super-psycho.

HM: Why did you pierce the vaginas of female cops?
CARNAGE: Destroying humanity's sensitivity towards fertility is key!
HM: You want to destroy a woman's ability to reproduce? Are you deranged?
CARNAGE: No, I'm not deranged. Females hold the power of life on Earth.
HM: And you want to destroy this sacred power? Why?
CARNAGE: America is a land of gluttons and cheeseburger-guzzlers...
HM: I don't think female cops warrant the punishment for that frailty!
CARNAGE: Why not? Why be a female cop when your husband is a glutton?
HM: You're confusing patriotism with fanaticism...
CARNAGE: I am not! Who would notice if I castrated male cops? Boring!
HM: Look, maybe the Starbucks logo is a female mermaid-siren, but c'mon!
CARNAGE: "C'mon(!)" what? America is a giant Burger King fraternity.
HM: I suppose Jack the Ripper was a prophet too...
CARNAGE: I know nothing of Scotland Yard, but the LAPD is Burger King.
HM: By attacking women, you send the message that nothing is sacred.
CARNAGE: You're biased by the media; you're searching for Robin Hood...
HM: An enemy of fertility is an enemy of God.
CARNAGE: God doesn't love everyone...read Richard III.

Chapter 3: Demon-Baby
1 Attachment(s)
This chapter/section was inspired by the governance-darkside film Village of the Damned.


Horror-Man now had two very handsome trophies in his crime-fighting case for personal glory. Now, the U.S. government wanted to send Horror-Man on a special mission to Venus from which emanated a strange intelligent signal seemingly signifying some kind of salutations to humanity. Horror-Man was both excited and thrilled at the opportunity to make 'contact' with an entirely new species. Perhaps Horror-Man was also jaded by the moral apathy of the human species...

Horror-Man landed on Venus and was greeted by a humanoid alien named Spencer who took him to a special auditorium where Horror-Man was shown a slideshow history of Venutian culture and theocracy. Spencer explained that Venutians were engaged in a commerce-gauged political 'system' similar to the one created by humans on Earth. However, Venutians adapted a special form of 'relentless competitive-bargaining' which resulted in a 'society' of pure malice, wrath, gluttony, ambition, and fury. Some 'clans' on Venus even practiced cannibalism, eating the flesh of prisoners of rival clans taken hostage during battles.

The ultimate totem of this 'savagery-capitalism' Venutian system was a horrifyingly tragic 'golden child' of sacrifice selected as a pagan 'ideal' of sadomasochistic commerce-cynical death rituals. The child was a 1 year-old infant named Shell who was very cute and cuddly but had developed a bitter spirit because of the threats made against his life. Shell was 'chosen' by Venutians to be the 'scapegoat-offering' every Saturday night. Shell would be taken to an altar where he would be tortured but not killed and then allowed one week to heal. This bizarre and savage 'ritual' reflected the Venutians' complete moral disarray and descent into madness caused by capitalism corruption.

Horror-Man realized he was on a crusade-like 'mission of mercy' to save the forlorn baby Shell whose first torture-ritual 'session' was about to begin (on the upcoming Saturday evening!). Horror-Man was amused by the fact that Venutians used the same type of Roman calendar humans used on Earth, perhaps because the two planets shared the same sun. Horror-Man took a megaphone to the human-Venutian contact-celebration 'symposium' in the main auditorium (the entire Venutian city was a 'fortress' build underground and hence invisible to normal telescopes such as Hubble). Horror-Man delivered the following address before returning to Earth where he meditated on the intrinsic value of 'tempered capitalism':

"I am shocked and dismayed that our friends on Venus have struggled with the 'parametrics' of prudent capitalism-theory applications. Venutians have descended to the state of pure barbarous animals, bent on thievery, crudeness, savagery, and unspeakable avarice --- culminating in the demonic scapegoating of a bizarrely-chosen 'golden child' of species-sacrifice (and self-destruction!). Shell reminds every sentient being in the known universe that no end (regardless of how 'thrilling') justifies the means to that end (regardless of how 'popular'). I return to Earth simply 'humbled' about the 'capacity' of capitalism theory. I will take with me my fond memory of Shell --- this heavenly photograph taken by my high-tech NASA mobile phone (called the 'Snap-Stenographer')."
