This comic was a promotional item for a Court TV show that ran for 13 episodes in 2007.
I didn't get it till recently though. I loved John Waters as The Groom Reaper and the story.
It's an adaptation of the first episode, Funeral Parlor Murder, but has a cliffhanger ending.
So you must see the end of the episode to find out if the husband or wife is the murderer.
Sadly I could only find the pilot online. You can watch it here.
Since the murderer uses a hatchet, it reminded me of Hatchet For The Honeymoon (1970).
The murderer in it, John Harrington (Stephen Forsyth), actually uses a meat cleaver though.
He also wears a veil and lipstick, as you can see:
Ron Howard took a break from playing Opie on the Andy Griffith Show to be in this movie.
He plays the son of a woman held hostage by Johnny Cash!
Johnny also sings the theme, Five Minutes To Live, which is the movie's alternate title.
Before playing Richie on Happy Days, Ron starred in the only movie directed by Darren McGavin.
It's called Happy Mother's Day, Love George AKA Run Stranger, Run (1973)
He plays an adopted teen who finds his biological family in a small town.
Including his aunt and crazy cousin, played by Patricia Neal and Tessa Dahl.
(Who are mother and daughter in real life.)
And discovers they're all keeping a dark secret.
You can watch both movies free on YouTube!
