The Art of Darkness

Oh No!

Comic CoverChris’s Invincible Super-Blog has a wonderful post about the skeletons-in-unexpected-places thing that comprised about 90% of all horror comics in the 70s.

Skeletal bus drivers, skeletal ski instructors, skeletal lighthouses… The madmen creating these terrifying tomes would stop at nothing to ambush the reader with a shot of osteological dread, and with the climax of Spooktoberfest rapidly approaching, I thought it might be time for another gruesome gallery of things… that are actually skeletons!

I’m somewhat dismayed to realize that I’ve read almost every one of the titles he lists.

Romero and Juliet

October 24th, 2007 by Cobwebs

New York’s Impetuous Theater Group, in a flash of utter genius, has combined zombies and Shakespeare in a production entitled “Twelfth Night of the Living Dead.” I may need to go lie down for a few minutes to recover from this.

When a strange meteor smashes into a ship en route to Illyria, the bodies pile up as fast as the romantic complications. Will true love prevail? Can a zombie be made to understand the affairs of the heart, without eating it? Or will the fools of Illyria never live to see another dawn?
