Where Monsters Dwell #28: "Tough Guy"

Download Where Monsters Dwell #28

The Devil Made Me Do It! Here is a short funny which I first read at my cousin Jimmy "Skeeter" Beavers' home, whom used to astound me by seemingly purchasing every single horror anthology comic-book that was available on the newsstands at the time. Needless to say, "Little" Jimmy was my favorite cousin to hang out with when we were mere slip of boys. In stark contrast to the previous post, I thought that this comic story was absolutely hilarious at the time and, perhaps, might even be deemed "politically incorrect" using today's rod of measurement vis-à-vis the political arena. The story's lowdown is that Bart Nelson is too tough for the demons of hellnothing they do to him has any effect until they come up with a rather unique idea.

While I do not know who wrote "Tough Guy" as the author is not credited, the Grand Comics Database lists John Rosenberger as the illustrator of this very imaginative story.
