Terminal is a creepy horror comic about a group of people who try to run a homeless man out of town. It is based on a story called “Terminated” which appeared in Twisted Tales #5.
The townsfolk surrounded the old broken-down shack where the homeless man lived. Some were armed with sticks and stones. Others carried guns and sharp axes. All of them were angry.
“Come out, Old Man!” shouted one woman. “We don’t want your kind around here!”
“Hawkins Junction is a nice clean town!” shouted one man. “We don’t want lepers here!”
They waited with bated breath.
All of a sudden, the door creaked open and a shambling figure stepped out into the light. Some people screamed.
It was the homeless man. The flesh was rotting away from his bones. His skin was covered in boils and sores.
“Don’t let him touch you!” screamed one woman.
“Get out of here, Leper!” shouted a man.
The homeless man staggered away as the townsfolk pelted him with rocks and stones. One man levelled his shotgun and opened fire.
The blast hit the homeless man in the back, knocking him over the cliff.
The townsfolk cheered and headed home.
“We got that old leper!” shouted one man.
“We didn’t need his kind around here!” shouted another.
But the townsfolk never saw where the homeless man’s rotting corpse fell… Into their water supply.
