The Trenchcoat Brigade #3 - May 1999

"Misery, Book 3: Eyes of the Blind" by John Ney Rieber and John Ridgeway.

The Trenchcoat Brigade continue their trek through this strange dimension, and at one point all of the Brigade end up "exchanging" each other's deepest, darkest feelings, and the Stranger ends up with Dr. Occult's:

The Brigade discovers the severed head of their cossack friend, and a young girl gets involved, and this issue ends with one of her hands possessed by a demon, with its little eyes popping out of her palm. It's that kind of story. be concluded!

Great concept, great issue. I don't believe we actually get to see what was so disturbing about Occult that rattled the Stranger, but I recall Mister E's being pretty awful.

Oh sorcerers, why are you such a broken lot?

The Stranger at some point mutters something about Occult's loneliness being especially horrific, because Occult truly loves Rose and they're doomed to be always so close but never actually in the same place at the same time.

There's a suggestion in the All-Stars event that the Stranger played a role in the merging of Rose and Occult back in the 40s, which would mean that in this moment he understood that he had actually doomed his friend to a particularly torturous kind of solitude.
