||A Worthless Halloween 2: Dan's New Neighbor|
Goddamn, this one's good! Dan's New Neighbor is the follow-up (in Halloween spirit only) to "A Worthless Halloween," and in it, Dan finds himself living next to an honest-to-God undead vampire, spreading his unholy vampire plague. Very quickly, the small town of Ottumwa, IA falls victim to this sickness, including many a Worthless character, until only three unfortunate souls remain. But, but, but…but how do you kill what's already dead? Easy: with stakes, holy water, and all that other vampire-killing bullshit. (Just read the Goddamn story already.)
This blood-soaked, action-packed horror/comedy combo will blow you away and beat you off all over the place. After all, where else can you see Candy Land, Batman, Hulk Hogan, and Sturgis jokes combined with brutal violence (the fight you've been waiting for: Ben VS. Spencer!), awesome action, and…well, pretty fucking good art by yours truly, if I do say so myself. I don't like to "toot my own horn" or anything (correction: I love to, in so many different ways), but the art in this one is, as the kids say, cock-smoking in its blow-jobbing bombast.
Fun Fact: Check out the special guest (out-of-continuity) appearance from Captain Alliondros III, Vampire Hunter M.D.!
Side-note: I want it known that though I scripted the particulars of this storyline, Hass and I worked very closely together on the pre-production. This is very much a Ben and Hass collaboration.
Super Side-note: This is also one of my favorite storylines.
