Hellina: Kiss of Death

 HKOD   (Lightning, 1995, 1997)

™ and ©1995 Joseph A. Zyskowski & Steven V. Zyskowski

Hellina: Kiss of Death is really just the continuation of a battle scene started earlier in Fury of Hellina #1. The cultists known as the 7th Day had joined with Lucifer to turn the dead body of Hellina’s old boyfriend into a demonic being called Despair. Hellina, joined by a “good” demon called Perg, was in mid-battle with Despair; then Perg suggests stabbing Despair through the head with a special dagger Perg carries. This has the effect of filtering out the stab-ee’s evil nature and giving them a fresh chance in life. Always a game one for stabbing people, Hellina gives it a shot, but finds out that the “stab through the head/make you into a nice person” trick only works for pure-of-heart folks like Perg. Despair, instead, turned even more evil…

This one-shot was sold in a regular edition, as well as in a “gold” edition for the gullible, and a “nude” edition for the easily amused.
