Halloween Murder Den: Part 3

I would not recommend looking into how nasty James Joyce’s letters to his wife were if you aren’t already familiar.

I also would not recommend eating at McDonald’s, but I know you gonna keep on doin’ that too, so I ain’t tryin’ to tell you how to live your life.

There is still much more to come in the story of the Halloween Murder Den.

Do not forget to come to Comics & Collectibles tomorrow (Saturday, October 31) from 12-4pm and get your copy of Let’s Be Friends Again, Vol. 1 – Under Pressure, hell of classy art prints of your favorite strips, the best LBFA shirts you have ever seen, autographs and sketches straight from us (the dudes what make this).

If you come in costume you get 20% off anything in the store, and if you come as someone from LBFA you get 25% off!

The store is also doing a giveaway where every person that buys a copy of our book is entered into a drawing for a FREE copy of the Amazing Spider-Man Omnibus V.1 HC that retails for $99.99. Unbelievable, right?

    My WORD. Curt’s not kidding about Joyce, y’all. That stuff is not for the faint of heart. I didn’t even know they used the c-word back then!

  3. MartiniMan

    “You chose the Talisker”

    You didn’t check on that taxi guy at all…

    In all seriousness, David Foster Wallace is fucking ridiculous. I OWN Infinite Jest and I still haven’t read the entire thing. And I want to; I just feel like I’d need an entire month, uninterrupted, in order to do it.

    Also, having read those aforementioned letters, I can agree that Joyce was quite the freaky-nasty sonnovabitch.


  8. aprilsteeleisreal

    Joe, I was just trying to remind people that I do in fact exist and am not actually the mythical perfect woman I am rumored to be. I AM real, and continue to keep it as such on a daily basis.


  9. Joel Priddy

    Dang, Talisker is tasty. Worth falling down a murder well.

    Why does Ghost Ed Brubaker have an eyepatch? I’m not saying it’s not badass, but it’s odd.


  11. chudleycannonfodder (David)

    AH! More long necked ghosts!

    Love that this one was chock full of literary references. Joyce and DFW FTW! (A lso, Fuck Ayn Rand. But not literally. ‘Cause she’s a ghost and that wouldn’t work well.)


  12. Ian

    Ok. Joyce truly is a nasty MoFo. And DFW is a got-damned genius, shame no one wants to make it through the book. You think the first fifty pages are hard? Try the heavy-duty math in the 100+ pages of endnotes he uses trying to explain nuclear-tonnage yield in an end-of-the-world game played by high schoolers on a tennis court.
