Halloweirdos Presents: Boardwalk Empire

Ah, prohibition-era Atlantic City… a place where women were women and men were monsters.
Richard Harrow is the tragically disfigured war veteran and desperately loyal friend to Boardwalk Empire’s prodigal son Jimmy. He’s a cold-blooded killer for hire, but that tin-mask that hides his mangled face does little to hide the poor soul just desperate for acceptance. He believes himself to be a monster, but we know better, don’t we? Behind the mask of every monster lays a tortured man. Or is it the other way around? Well, either way… if Richard shows up on your doorstep and rings the doorbell, I’d think twice before answering it, he’s probably not trick-or-treating. You can find lots of treats in the land of Latta.

About Josh Latta

Mr Josh Latta was born in 1853 to a family of tamed Pleistocenes. he was raised as a small child, entering into adulthood on the eve of his 7th birthday as was the tradition of the day. in 1867 he undertook a course in multi-reptile wrestling ending his career as 'croc-tussler' after an unfortunate shallow-river related accident cut short the life of a young crocodile. moving to rural Sheboigan in the fall of 1872, he made a good living raising fancy roosters and painting murals across the town depicting the various lascivious secrets of the townsfolk. driven out of town in the spring of 1873 he found his way to Utah where he was Flaneur in Residence at the Foundation of Gentlemen and Cultured Guinea Pigs (now the Foundation of Water Fowl and Cultured Guinea Pigs) until a scandal involving twin milkmaids and a churn of cream called for his resignation. Latta entered into the history books in 1899 for his lifesize construction of Monument Valley in matches.
