Monster of the Day #1006

Well. OK, then.

  • Flangepart

    Da heck?
    This…has got to be the weirdest one yet.
    You describe it to anyone who hasn’t been drinking, and ask “What country produced it”, and 9 time out of 10 they’ll say ‘Japan’.

  • GalaxyJane

    And after yesterday’s I didn’t think these could get any weirder. Huh.

  • Gamera977

    Macy’s Thanksgiving parade used to be pretty weird apparently…

  • The Rev.

    Oh my god, this needs to be a movie yesterday.

  • Everything about this cover makes sense, except for what looks like a scuba diver sitting on Santa’s shoulder. That’s weird.

    “Massacre on 34th Street”

  • bgbear_rnh

    It is a Navy Christmas Seal.

  • Ah. The final piece clicks into place.

    re: seasonal avatar

    Halloween cats are one of my favorite holiday images.

  • GalaxyJane

    Thanks! The funny thing is that Magpie (black and white, steals stuff, ya know) has been my year-round Discus avatar for a few years. I literally just walked into the kitchen one morning and there she was.

    Possibly because she is an idiot with a death wish who won’t stay off the f#$%ing table :)

  • GalaxyJane

    Now I have to go hunt down the original of that picture.

  • bgbear_rnh

    I never knew our cat got on our table when we were not around until he set off a recently installed motion detector that was set high to keep from detecting him. Caught him on video, the little devil. He has the same fur color/pattern as Magpie although more white.

  • Chris Metzinger

    This is just the best… I was in a bad mood before seeing this, it’s a ray of sunshine! (btw, you think Samson might prefer some kind of bludgeoning weapon instead of Murder Umbrella up there? The juxtaposition of the pointy tip and his eye patch, just thinking maybe he’d have some bad memories… plus it can’t be an effective throwing weapon!)

  • Eric Hinkle

    This reminds me of an old description I once read of Silver Age comics: “Drug trips with pictures to remind you that they really happened.”

  • bgbear_rnh

    Samson is planning to let the air out of Santa’s little celebration.

  • Flangepart

    But it might double as a parachute.

  • Rock Baker

    Oddball to be sure, but somehow less bizarre than yesterday’s cover. That one was wrong in so many ways words can’t describe it.

  • Petoht

    Well, at least the cover’s telling the truth. “Strange” indeed.

  • Beckoning Chasm

    I look at this and can’t help thinking that there was a new, clueless editor at Gold Key that the artists loved to mess with.
    [The editor frowns slightly at the watercolor image he has just been handed.] “You’re…mocking me, aren’t you?”
    “No, no, that’s totally the next issue. Totally.”

  • Acethepug

    Oh. My. God.

    Why? Why do I not have every issue of this apparently crack-tastic series?

    This cover … glorious! Must. Have! Off to eBay!

  • bgbear_rnh

    Hey. Just got an e-mail saying that riftrax has done R.O.T.O.R.

  • sandra

    Samson is trying to fend off a vampire bat/ eagle hybrid with an umbrella ? One swipe of its talons and that reindeer is history.
