There are better ways to spend a rainy afternoon than flipping through a box of old Heavy Metal magazines, but that's exactly what I was doing when I happened upon "Is There No Justice in the Universe?" a forgotten five-page story by Brian Allen McCall in the August 1983 issue. Buried near the middle of the magazine, between a middle chapter of Tamburini and Liberatore's Ranxerox and a one-page strip by Peter Kuper, it's not surprising that this story was condemned to obscurity.

I met Gahan Wilson at the Horror Writers Association (HWA) Stoker Awards Banquet in New York City in 1998. We talked over a drink at one of the cocktail parties at the weekend event. In addition to feeling somewhat awestruck to be in the presence of one of the greatest contemporary cartoonists, whose work has appeared in Playboy, , The New Yorker, The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, and National Lampoon, I was also struck by his affability and his sense of humor.
