Despite the exoskeleton and mouth full of poisonous suckers, Jerry got along with the alien better than with most humans. In fact, Jerry had nicknamed him 'Craphound', after their shared love of hunting for unique treasures at garage sales and thrift stores. They were buddies. That is, until Craphound found the old cowboy trunk. Adapted by Dara Naraghi (whose Lifelike debuts this month, too. See previous page for info), with a cover by Eisner-winning artist Paul Pope!
