6-26-19 – EVERYTHING! An ongoing from Dark Horse
Sounds very interesting and like a premise made for TV! Especially if it’s what sounds like a dark comedy. “EVERYTHING is a gleaming new mega-department store which arrives to extraordinary thrill-and rapidly escalates to inexplicable mania in the small town of Holland, Michigan.
When random hellish fires and unshakable psychic disturbances start to overtake the community, a few-like depressive out-of-towner Lori and a suspicious local named Rick-begin to suspect EVERYTHING and its catalog-perfect manger, Shirley.
Who-or what-exactly is in charge here . . . and what insidious plans are in store?”
