Holy

oh. Whoa

Shit.

I was thinking if you need money

you can use my credit card.

What?

I got it under control

Sure you don't want to come

and stay at my place tonight?

I'd like to, but I'll be

up all night studying

Now get out of here

Marcus sent me to get the money

You cannot be showing up

to my fucking house like this

- I need more time.

- Marcus said to get the money tonight

or he's going to pay himself

at your girlfriend's house.

Listen to me

You leave her the fuck

out of this.

Oh, I'm just the messenger

Get us the fucking money

Jesus

Cool.

No.

My husband liked

to collect awful things

Take it to the dump

with everything else

- You know I can sell this-

- Young man,

when you take this to the landfill

promise me

you'll watch them bury it.

Man.,

Sorry, ma'am,

but one man's trash

is another man's treasure

Cooler than I thought.

What

Shit

- What is it, man?

- Get your shit together

You gotta see this

All right

Wow.

- What the hell is it?

- I don't know.

What's that?

It's a key

- Is that an engraving?

- Yeah.

Von Tristen,1952.

Dude, we might have

a real antique here.

Come over here

Check this out, dude

I think I figured out

where the key goes.

Give me that

That's creepy

What happened?

Why would someone

put a music box in a coffin?

I don't know

But I'm going to bed

So you're thinking

post-modern philosophy- ambitious

I like it. Right here.

First few chapters are a little slow

Mid-way through it picks up,

but the ending- change your life

Okay, I'll take a look

Game over

Skinner was asking

about you in class today

wondering if you dropped out

Yeah, I slept right through it.

The harder I try, the worse I do

- I wish I could help, man.

- Show me what you found

Wolfgang von Tristen.

Born:
Frankfurt, 1412

Builder of torture devices

I saw that already

There's no mention of coffins-?

- Of any kind.

- Right this way

Age of Darkness

This guy was like an evil version

of Leonardo da Vinci.

They called him

the Devil's Craftsman

That's it.

Idolon Machina

Von Tristen was fascinated

with death and the worlds beyond

The later part of his years

were spent creating

the ultimate machine-

a mechanical coffin

that allowed him to safely experience

the sensation of death.

Von Tristen called this

'ghost machine'-

ghost machine

How much you think it's worth?

Thousands? Millions?

Collectors would kill

for something like that

Hey- the book's not allowed

out of the archive!

You're gonna set off the alarm

Glad to be of assistance

Dude, what the hell

are you doing?

I just replaced a couple

of pins in the music box

It should work fine

Easy, man.

What's up?

Read this

Von Trlsten's ghost machine

This coffin-like device

is said to produce

an out-of-body experience

similar to the first

moments of death

Von Tristen was accused

of sorcery and burned at the stake

Although sketches of the coffin were

recovered from his laboratory,

- an actual prototype was never found

- Until now.

No way.

Grab Minnie.

You'd better not hurt

my goldfish, man.

- What'd you do?

- Nothing!

Wait wait wait wait

Just give it a sec

Minnie's dead

Oh ho!

I can't believe it

Hey

Call Platt.

Kyle!

Why are you beeping?

- Honk honk

- Hey.

What's up?

So what's the surprise?

Ah, that is exactly what I needed

What happened to your neck?

- It's a hickey from Gina

- What?

She tried to roundhouse me

in kickboxing class,

but I kicked her ass

Ohhh, that's my girl

the night as it cuts before

Whatever we're going thru

just want to be with you...

Kyle, the gas company just called
