Comic books, cannibalistic worms, albinos, copyright infringement, and the Blues. This story has it all.

"Clearly, they are being transformed into worms. The real question is, is that transformative use in a legal sense, such that the First Amendment requires that we let this happen?"

Now, this is a story. Bet it beats the comic book hands down!

The Autumn Brothers have some unique traits, though. They are the spawn of a human and a worm. They rule the earth after dark and have sexual intercourse with dead animals.

What's so unique about that?

Not in my opinion. "Western Horror" is really creepy. Tim Truman is a cool artist. Writer Joe Lansdale is the current darling of Rosebud magazine, which I love (great fiction, sf and horror). You can also find some of Lansdale's fiction online at RevolutionSF. It's all good...

The court case has been around for a while.

In other news, the Frankenstien monster is suing Edgar for using his name in association with a synth instrumental that used to make my dog look skyward(for the mothership, I suppose.)

Interesting case, I fall in the First Amendment protection camp myself, even though as a big fan of the Winter brothers, I find it kinda tasteless, the whole bestiality joke just seems excessive and unneccesary.

I remember seeing Johnny Winter live back in 1991 at Madison Square Garden, one hell of a musician he is, man.

Honestly. The Winters brothers have no idea how cool it is that they were made into comic book characters. What next? The Rolling Stones suing Dave Sim over Mick and Keef? Ridiculous. And to think, I used to think the Winters Brothers were cool...

More Western Horror for anyone interested: Texarcana, now complete and online, originally published in Heavy Metal from '81 to '87. Very probably a heavy influence on Lansdale and Truman. Cool. How come I like my westerns best when they involve spaghetti or vampires?
