In keeping with their theme of twisted tales and urban legends, the people at Zenescope and the makers of Grimm Tales of Terror take the four hundred plus year mystery of The Lost Colony of Roanoke and turn it into a fantastic tale of the environment versus an evil corporation wreaking havoc on the environment.
We have a big, bad energy company tearing down trees and poisoning the earth through the fruits of his business. The President and CEO couldn’t care less and his wife, who is also a real piece of work (drunk or sober) thinks that taking out the trash is pitching it in the river behind their mansion-like house. Couple of real winners in society huh? They both are killing the earth and environment and neither care. In fact, the hubby is outraged that the forest isn’t being chopped down as fast as he wants it to be and starts raising holy hell in hopes that people will get their butts in gear and get the work done.
And yet, while walking to their car one night they are approached by a man, an activist, a person that touts a careful warning that they should stop what they are doing. But, like most rich egotists, they don’t listen.
So, what happens to the rich and stupid when they poison the earth and seek to destroy? We could wait for the end of this presidential term to find out OR you could just read this issue and find out for yourself. It IS much faster and will probably be more satisfying, from what I can tell.
