Purgatory? Nice place to visit, but … well, actually it’s a pretty lousy place. The upshot is your final destination, assuming you’re on the fast track to Heaven. Even then, there’s a good chance they’ll lose your luggage. To those bound for the other place … well, these stories may or may not forcibly demonstrate that "crime does not pay" … but you can’t say you weren’t warned.
The Hellfire Lounge #5 continues the antics of Nick Nussbaum (who also goes by the name of Satan) and head waitress Lucia D’Amore. The weirdest assortment of misfits and malcontents gather at the Hellfire Lounge to raise their glasses and swap tall tales. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry ... and you may even scream. This is NOT a place where everyone knows your name ... you may want to keep it that way.
