Here we see Eddie as a young boy. We see a moment in his life that affects him forever.
We do get a look at a man in black who does nothing but sit and eat. Looking at him you can feel the evil emanating from him. As you look at his table and listen to his words it is obvious he can tell what is coming.
The art has a lot of symbolism in it.
Eddie and Henry are two typical brothers. They love each other yet they do fight and argue. Now Henry is always getting into trouble. Henry has a way of dragging Eddy along with him into that trouble. Eddie does have some common sense but his worship of his older brother overrides it.
Eddie and Henry are so close. Eddie adores him. Now Henry is far from someone to be looked up to. The two of them go to the Dutch Hill Mansion a condemned house. This house would scare anyone.
Eddie gets to spend a summer without his big brother. When Henry comes home he wants drugs. It is a bad start to his homecoming.
Henry and Eddie do move on with their lives. It is easy to see who is the stronger of the two. It is Eddie who looks out for his older brother. It always has been.
Eddie ends up having a weird dream that gives an insight into the future. Here we see Roland for the first time and a lobstrosity. Eddie and Roland make contact.
The journey is just beginning for Eddie. His life is about to change for the better or worse only Ka can tell.
