True Tales of a cartoonist: The Transformation
From the first ominous tingle I know I have about a ten minute period before I transform into a hideous mockery of a man and become a literal avatar of disease. Once the process begins there is no stopping it until the horror completes itself.
It’s like becoming a werewolf. Only I don’t gain any cool powers, I don’t get hairy, and my face hurts and drips puss.
Okay it’s nothing like becoming a werewolf.
