Prepare for a new hero. A hero that has tasted the stench of evil's darkness yet has also touched the goodness in men's hearts. A hero that rewards as well as punishes. A hero that battles street crimes as well as that which crosses supernatural dimensions. The hero is NIGHTLINGER and the shadows are his domain. And joining him is his sexy female assistant, Mike who keeps Nightlinger embedded in the realm of humanity. From one troubled person to the next the plain black business cards with the gold lettering are passed. "I had a problem like yours once," the donor confesses. "This card got me out of it." There is only an address on the card, to the Haunted Bookshop in Minneapolis, where a fat man named Stick sits behind the counter. This fat man will patiently listen to your tale of woe, may even ask you a question or two, but in the end all he will do is wish you well, leaving you nothing to do except to go home. Sometimes nothing happens to rectify a problem; more often than not, the predicament is resolved. Permanently. In the latter case a letter appears in your mail requesting a small donation to support the Haunted Bookshop. Most folks are only too happy to comply.

It's the moment the world has been waiting for: the return of everyone's favorite musclebound punk/metal romantic odd couple, Henry and Glenn.

It's hardcore. It's hilarious. It's a true testament to the power of love to overcome even the biggest, manliest egos of our time. Now with a new cover option from Jim Rugg!
Starring super-notorious musclebound punk/metaldudes Glenn Danzig and Henry Rollins (with a little help from super-notorious soft-rockdudes Hall and Oates) Henry & Glenn Forever is a love story to end all love stories! The premise of this comic is explained in the beginning, "Henry and Glenn are very good 'friends.' They are also 'room mates.' Daryl and John live next door. They are satanists." What follows is ultra-metal violence and cryfest diary entries, cringing self-doubt and mega-hilarious emo-meltdowns. Who knew Danzig was such a vulnerable, self-conscious sweety-pie? Who knew Rollins was such a caring spouse? Who knew Hall and Oates were so infernally evil-yet so considerate? Well, illustrating/writing team Igloo Tornado (featuring super-awesome comixdude Tom Neely) did and they kicked down 66 fully-illustrated pages with it. Genius on all fronts. Terrifyingly cute. Cutely terrifying. As the real-life Rollins says, quoted on the back cover, "Has Glenn seen this? Trust me, he would not be impressed."
