This is the first comic that came with a CD Single. When these started coming out, it was under the idea that at the end of the series, you could send in to Chaos, and you would get a CD full of each single that comes with the Pendulums. But that never came to pass. Also, there were special versions for Tower Recods stores, and since not everyone has a Tower, these are slightly rarer.


A dark being, intent on evil, has been slowly taking over the world. But lately his nefarious schemes have been constantly thwarted by the Wicked Clowns and the machinations of the Dark Carnival. In response, this malevolent being has conjured up a pair of warriors to fight the Insane Clowns. This evil pair is known as Twiztid!
