Journey into Mystery #627
"There’s a story the bartenders tell about the devil; that every night at closing time, he chooses a bar and walks in the door with all the sorrows of the world on his shoulders. A bar. Or a pub. Or a saloon. Wherever people sweetly numb themselves. He’s not fussy.
Then the devil walks through that door and wants to talk. If you listen and survive, he’ll give you a tip. And you’ll never have to work again.
The story isn’t true.
But occasionally, the devil plays along.
