L.V. Thomas, Jr

Biography

L.V. Thomas Jr.'s poor sense of rhythm makes it easy to march to the beat of a different drummer. L.V. laughs at the jokes in movies that no one else does and considers irony the true spice of life. Alfred Hitchcock and Rod Serling are L.V.'s heroes because they got it right about life and its oddities. And if that's not enough strangeness, L.V. has a thing about cats and birds, a thing as in very afraid of them. Hmmm, maybe there's a story there....

L.V.'s warped view of life led to the creation of Acme Worldwide, a global conglomerate whose sole aim is commercial dominance of the world. Each Tale from the Cube highlights one facet of Acme's unique existence. Are these stories really macabre? You're invited to decide for yourself.
