Maybe Pearl's mistake was in bringing the creature -- the one she found in her backyard -- to the weird man in the basement of the hospital. She should have told her mom instead. Or maybe her mistake was in keeping the baby monster that the creature birthed. Either way, Pearl's not feeling so good. From the pages of Dark Horse Presents comes The Ninth Gland by Renée French (author of the controversial Grit Bath series). Regular DHP readers loved French's exacting eye for detail and fluid storytelling the first time around, and here's your chance to get new readers hooked on something completely different. Featuring one of the most intriguing stories to appear in DHP in years, this collection answers the fans' demands to experience this whacked-out tale in one sitting.
