Synopsis: A group of punks visit in graveyard for rite of bravery. They open a coffin; it’s time to switch places.
Comment: Stories of blood come more closer to present days. Story by Richard Margopoulos and artwork by Corben rules okay. Corben changes his drawing technique from tonal to computer screened B&W artwork – it’s quicker.
