Weird Fiction is a pulp magazine
At 248 West 16th in Chelsea, room number 418, Marge was annoyed with her husband. It was a perfectly sunny day and he chose to stay in and read his comics rather than going out and playing tennis with her. As the man sits and she prepares to leave, they are both attacked by a weird creature. A Sandman put the husband to sleep and caused a creature from the comic to manifest. The Ghostbusters later dealt with the creature and realized it matched the Weird Fiction cover art.
