I remember a particular story in a comic in the UK (could have been a US import though), it regards a couple on a honeymoon cruise on a liner.

The ship picks up someone in a lifeboat (or directly from the sea?), but it turns out that this person has some sort of disease that turns the victim into an overgrown monster (bit hulk-like).

The disease is passed on by touch, and spreads through the ship like wildfire. The newly-weds are soon the only ones left, and as they prepare to jump overboard, the wife gets infected and the husband must escape alone.

Any ideas? Bit vague I know! Thanks, Chris

  • Perhaps "The Fog" if it was filmatised?

It may be a graphic adaptation of a short story 'The Voice in the Night' by William Hope Hodgson.

Apparently adapted by many other writers in different formats.
