Synopsis for "More Pain Comics, Part V: Head Pieces"
Kent Nelson is still in shock after witnessing the possible death of Inza Fox, a woman who saved his life and took him to her home, before she was melted into a pool of a black substance by the demon Negal. Nelson takes some clothes that belonged to Inza's ex-boyfriend and prepares to leave the house, but he realizes that him leaving her home as she's never seen again, will cause him trouble. Instead, Nelson decides to read some of Inza's comic book creation: "More Pain Comics; Killhead".
The story is about an Incubus called Killhead, whose main purpose is to get laid with a mortal woman. He is sent to Earth to copulate with a young woman, who chose a life of promiscuity, as his superiors believe that this woman would provide an easy engagement for Killhead. Unfortunately, they are wrong and the lady is emotionally connected to Killhead as soon as she is touched by him. After running away from the demon being, she finally accepts the fact that she has developed feelings for Killhead, and in turn, the incubus has to keep trying to seduce her in order to have sexual intercourse. Knowing that once his mission is accomplished Killhead would leave Earth, the woman plays hard to get and puts Killhead through a series of dinner dates, after which nothing new is accomplished. The activity becomes almost a routine, and everytime after another failure, Killhead goes out to the city and unleashes his sexual frustration as outbursts of extreme violence against rotten human souls, killing all sort of criminals every night.
The seeking of purpose and eternal struggle of Killhead makes Nelson realize that he should be moving on with his life and also that Inza had extreme thoughts and feelings locked up inside. Nelson decides to go back to Maddy's book store, where upon arriving, he is told by Maddy that his aura has changed again because he has witnessed death or something very similar. Acknowledging the truth, Nelson enters her book store and Maddy tells him that she has found some information about the helmet he is wearing. She gives him an occult history book about World War II, where there's a picture of a man wearing the same helmet and dressed in a strange outfit while fighting members of the Nazi Party.
