We are not strangers to the world of Carnival Comics here at Gaming on Batteries, we have tentatively ventured inward with Atomic Dreams but never into the Funhouse itself (though interestingly enough, it was a Funhouse book that first instigated our trek into madness). Jake is a wild character, he is calm and cool one minute then a firecracker of emotion (read, targeted anger) the next but open minded enough to take on whatever is in front of him, unless it is the past.
Jake has made quite a life for himself, even if it is as a recluse, through authoring stories for others. His home is as he wants it, no one bothers him and he can be alone with his memories, thoughts and regrets. That can be a very bad thing for some, Jake is no different. On Halloween day, Jake receives a letter that throws his world into even more turmoil than he was already reeling from- a letter sent over 25 years prior (the USPS is slightly slow in Jakes world).
What ensues is a whirlwind of horror, clowns and reliving times that no man should be forced to relive- Jake will never be the same again. Taking up the invitation that is extended in the letter by an anonymous benefactor, Jake heads to the carnival, to the Funhouse, to find out what is going on (after all, you don’t receive a quarter of a century old letter every day). Jake as we know him will not survive this venture into the Carnival of Souls, he cannot, it is that harrowing for our “ghost writer” who hates Halloween.
Enter the Funhouse of Horrors today, while it is free on Amazon (it is an exclusive for awhile). This is how you end an awesome series, with twists and turns and keeping us flipping pages wanting to know what happens next and then hating that it is finally over.
