"How does it feel to share your body with an ALIEN life form? "To be TRAPPED with a hideous, unwanted THING? I know... I can tell you. This is my story." So opens the horror tale called THAT from the pages of PETE VON SHOLLY'S MORBID volume 2 DEAD BUT NOT OUT (from Dark Horse- get it now!" It's a kind of 50's paranoid kid-or is he? /alien invasion/ thing. It's weird- Morbid (voume one) sold great and continues to sell but the second book (which is much better in some respects!) lays there like a lox! Here's a link in case I convince you that you need this book for your continued well being and literary wholeness: The story features David Merritt, long time pal and boss of the model shop at Stan Winston's studio (Legacy) as the dad and comics great Mike Vosburg as the teacher.

Awesome! It's like Invasion of the Body Snatchers, but with far better monsters. I take it that "That!" is a play on the title "Them!", another classic.
