In the mean time, check out this "medically themed" strip from the Vault of Horror drawn by G. Evans. The gist is that a guy has been consumed by his cancer and turned into a cancer-monster, that goes around town "eating" other people's healthy cells. Oncologically speaking there are problems, to be sure. But with dialogue like, "Bullets won't kill it! Nothing will kill it! Drive it into the cave!" (I swear, that is sometimes how some cancer treatments seems to work.) How can I resist?
See you there!
