Synopsis: Gangsters force poor old shop owner to take their pinball machine. During molesting man a little boy is watching; young boy's father is dead and he's got feels on old man as a substitute father. Boy asks old man to fight back, but result is so horrible, that boy has to give revenge for mobsters.
Comment: Story of Doug Moench is kind of average (unfortunately I have seen only Eerie version without two last pages!) and Corben's artwork does not show his talent but on interesting fourth page. There is in reprinted version in Eerie a replaced Uncle Eerie on first page (prob. it was originally Cousin Creepy by Corben).
