"I'm looking for a house and the lady who lives in it, and when I find it I'm going to kill her."
Carl - the 'illustrated man' who tells a terrifying story of the supernatural - utters these words to his young companion, Willie. For Carl's life has become a nightmare since the day he met the beautiful woman who tattooed his skin from neck to toe.
