Ben Templesmith comic
Ben Templesmith returns! Meet Wormwood, the English-accented, beer-drinking, sentient corpse possessing a maggot expat from the Hell dimension. Well, one of them. If he's not attempting to save Earth from demonic, parasitic fungal infections or undead strippers, then he's off drinking with his homemade mechanical sidekick, Mr. Pendulum.
Raymond Delgado isn't welcome at all. Rather, he's the newest inmate at the Hoxford Correctional Facility and Mental Institution. He has no hope of release, parole, rehabilitation, or decent conversation. On a good day, he'll tell you he's Zeus and only bite your arm off. Literally. On a bad day, you won't have time to scream to the prison guard for help. And why are people always transferred into Hoxford, but no records show anyone ever transferring back out?
All is not well in the far north. As the Arctic slowly melts, automation increases, and labor costs go through the roof, CEO Claus is under increasing pressure to answer to his stockholders and his lenders. Rebellion is in the air and only Wormwood can potentially come in to help and hopefully not bugger it up too much.
