Cursitor Doom : The Man Who Died Every Day

by M.I.K.

Now, normally I wouldn’t post something here which had previously appeared in any publication associated with 2000ad, but when the following story appeared in the 2000ad Action Special in 1992, the then publishers were unknowingly using characters which they themselves did not own the copyright to. This means the stories printed in the special are unlikely ever to be reprinted elsewhere.

What follows is my favourite strip from that particular publication, a Cursitor Doom story, (of whom you can read more of by clicking this link), and a nicely twisted little tale it is too.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you “The Man Who Died Every Day“…

Well I don’t know what the delay is, but you’ve probably noticed that Mr. McNasty is taking a while to upload more installments of The Thirteenth Floor. While we’re waiting, I thought I’d post a story from the 1987 Eagle Annual.

Crooked House

by M.I.K.

Crooked House

BBC4 are showing a trilogy of ghostly tales, over three consecutive nights starting from Monday the 22nd of December, all written by and starring The League of Gentlemen’s Mark Gatiss. The stories all revolve around a house which no longer stands…

“Ben, a school teacher, has recently moved into a new house and found a door-knocker in his garden. The local museum curator identifies it as having once belonged to Geap Manor, a now-demolished Tudor mansion with a ghostly reputation. Intrigued, Ben asks if there are any “juicy stories” to be told, and the curator obliges. He begins to recount stories of the manor’s curious past… “

A special which combines all three stories will be shown on the night of Saturday 27th December.

…and a clip can be seen here…

I also saw a trailer for this tonight, but that doesn’t appear to be online yet. It certainly looks promising though.
