Characters Appearing: Alexis Primo, Terror (Shreck)
Terror Inc. #8
Issue(s): Terror Inc. #8
The story has a convicted mob embezzler bribing a guard to allow Terror to enter the prison and cut off some of his body parts, so that Terror can wear them to the guy's house so they can spend one last Christmas with his family (since he's inevitably going to get killed in jail). That's a great combination of ridiculously grossness and sentimental sweetness.
The conflict comes in when the mob boss that the prisoner embezzled from tries to kidnap the family. So Terror has to defend them. In a Santa suit, of course.
Note the reference to Boneyard, someone that supplies body parts to Terror.
You may be wondering how the family gets anything from creepy Terror wearing dad's body parts. And the answer is that he slips into the wife's bed and gives her a final caress while he's sleeping...
...and then makes some origami figures for the kid. He also leaves them most of the embezzled money.
