maniac killer strikes again!

maniac killer strikes again
richard sala
published 2003

A collection of long out of print stories from the late 80s to the early 90s.  Maniac Killer is full of deformed monsters and secret societies, of a murderous clan of cat-masked villains and simple mad scientists.  In the multi-chapter "Thirteen O'Clock" a serial killer bearing a corkscrew strikes repeatedly while a glowing, disembodied skull talks to the victims.  But the enigmatic detective Mr. Murmur solves the crime and shares the motive, too ridiculous to be explained here.  It combines noir mystery with absurd humor.

There is no other way to describe this collection of stories than to say it is very silly.  Very, very silly.  The end.
