Thanks for the request, @Dashelamet . I tried to keep it short. Maybe I'll do another volume at some point!
- •SeizureOliver Stone's first film, about a horror novelist whose characters come to life and terrorize him and his family. Not great, but clearly the work of a talented person with Mom issues.
