So … Kreskin becomes the saddle of a new consciousness … and “Kartophilous” is telling him just as he is planting the parasite mind in him … and Kartophilous’s own host was the author of the Necronomicon.
If this were’t so marvelously creepy and so hideous, I’d say “It explains so much!” But not really; one needs to include Evil, even if one doesn’t actually believe in it.
Oops, I forgot to ask if this explains Young Tom? If so, we see why Fr. Jackey said that Arthur Jermyn’s soul would have been useful later.
But how does the release of a human soul shut down such a being? Is there another way? Is Father Jackey desperate, to so use his friend? Why did what-his-name hold Arthur’s soul prisoner, and what plans had he for it?
And will it take a deus-ex-machina to resolve all of this?
Well, you guessed it. On the last page of the last issue, a Greek god descends into our field of view on a wooden platform and makes everything all right. Guess there’s no point in finishing the comic now……:-(
A very good alchemyst, with that quality of mirror.
At last at least a partial explanation of how the mad Arab was in a position to his blasphemous tomes inscribe! He was born knowing.
If the Greek god looks like Nodens, we’ll forgive you – sort of.
@Commuter ~ Saying Jermyn had a “human” soul may be a bit of a stretch. If I recall correctly, one of the Nine Unknowns looked quite a bit like Him…..
Also, this is a wonderful surprise. I always expected that “Kartophilus” WAS Abd al Azrad. Now it seems things aren’t so simple. I should have known.
Now that’s a bad zit.
i may do something dumb with saying this: yithian minds?!
Yeah, having an alien being attach itself to my face might drive me mad too…
And apropos of an earlier thread, just ran into this pulp fiction builder, the pulp-o-miser, which may amuse: http://thrilling-tales.webomator.com/derange-o-lab/pulp-o-mizer/pulp-o-mizer.html. Curious what Lovecraft Is Missing would look like, if presented pulp-o-mizer style.
Nodens was a Romano-British deity; not that Greek, really-
Anyway, a god in the machine ought to be Iris, Hercules, or Hermes-the latter of course, was partially identified with Nodens, but in a much greater degree with Thoth, as in NyarlaTHOTHep.
Tying up loose plot threads may not be what the characters would call a happy ending.
