Let's read some classic Neal Adams. Thrillkill is from the November 1975 issue of Creepy, and looks weirdly like a Richard Corben strip, with it's heavy tones and photographic style.
It's a great piece, all about a fallen altar boy reaching for Heaven, and how everybody let him down along the way, including himself. Kinda like that old movie Targets, if anyone's seen that.
A story torn from today's headlines, as they used to say.
