Longtime readers know the Headstabbers literary/cinematic franchise is extremely popular (and prolific) in whatever time and place Wondermark occurs.

But a reader wrote in to let me know that it may actually be a remake! There is a 1978 German film called Messer im Kopf – in English, Knife in the Head.

As this review raves, the film contains, at least for the time:

“…arguably the most realistic enactment of a brain injury ever depicted in the cinema.”

A more succinct summary of Headstabbers you would be hard-pressed to find.
