Devil’s Elbow #12: Silent Stalker by R. T. Cusick and Skeleton on a Skateboard by Tom B. Stone

Devil’s Elbow #12: Silent Stalker by R. T. Cusick and Skeleton on a Skateboard by Tom B. Stone

September 14, 2017

Wing recaps Silent Stalker by R. T. Cusick and Graveyard School #2: Skeleton on a Skateboard by Tom B. Stone (aka Nola Thacker aka D. E. Athkins). Around the 21 minute mark, she gets a little deep about mental illness, the damage books (and other pop culture) can do, and her exhaustion over living with a mental illness. And then it gets much more fun with the ridiculous joy that is Graveyard School.
