Plot synposis[edit]

Lazarus Jones is a Vietnam veteran who lost his legs in an helicopter explosion, which also killed all his friends. Years later he still thinks he must have died with them and lives in despair.

He suffers a car accident which puts him in a coma and is apparently transported to another dimension where his friends are alive and have taken sides in a never-ending war under the tutelage of Cthulhu.
