After an assault by a mysterious and monstrous milkman, a typical American housewife has finally had too much of her hideous, deranged family, and she takes a simple word of advice from her idol, the perfect 1950's mom on her television screen -- "Discipline." From the minds of Joe Casey and Steve Parkhouse comes the most shocking of all Dark Horse's new brand of horror comics. The unraveling of our forlorn homemaker's hopes leads to unprecedented terror, heralded by a demonic vision -- The Milkman, a twisted parody of a Norman Rockwell image as painted by serial-killing folk-artist John Wayne Gacy.
