Hallowe’en Underrated Comics: Gargoyle

Isaac Christians was an old man who made a deal with a demonic cult to preserve his Virginia hometown in the early 20th century.

He later earned the ire of the cult through his lack of bloodlust, and was cursed to remain in the body forever. He joined different combinations of super heroes over the years, to atone for what he held to be his multitude of sins.

He’s an elderly man trapped in the body of an immortal flying tank. He’s somewhat sedentary and bookish. He’s Larry David in living stone.

I somehow identify.
