Hi reader! DEADMAN here. After my initial run in STRANGE ADVENTURES ended, I disappeared for several years. But then one day I reappeared in, of all places, the pages of Jack Kirby's FOREVER PEOPLE...
X
My adventures with the FOREVER PEOPLE made me think of the Italian flick JULIET OF THE SPIRITS (1965), directed by Frederico Fellini. This was Fellini's first feature-length color film!

The film is about the visions, memories, and mysticism of a middle-aged woman that helps her find the strength to leave her philandering husband. It uses "caricatural types and dream situations to represent a psychic landscape." It also contains several seance scenes!

Hey, wait a minute! What the hell is going on here?!?!

Later in my FOREVER PEOPLE storyline, I possessed a robotic Deadman body called a "Follower." Did you know I could possess robots? Well I can! I can take over all kinds of things. I once possessed a toaster just for fun. I burned Batman's toast! Anyway, I took control of the follower, and...

Using the Follower's body, I THOUGHT
I'd found my murderer! --THE MAN WITH THE HOOK!!

But I was wrong. It wasn't actually my "real" killer. Here's the inside scoop...

But as I said, the bald weirdo with the hook actually was NOT my "real" killer. What happened in the end? Never mind! Basically, the whole thing was such a huge mess, I try never to think about it. Every time someone brings it up, I deny it ever happened. Oh well, I can't say they didn't warn me to LOOK OUT FOR--!
