I bet their so-called ‘hot sauce’ isn’t hot at all!” Cullen Waters Wow. That’s EXACTLY how I feel each Election cycle. I will leave it as a challenge to the reader which character represents me: the exploding face or reacting to someones head exploding. Gamera977 Forelock the Warlock??? Is he the cousin of Mullet the Magician? Luke Blanchard This is Lee Elias again, this time from TOMB OF TERROR #15. The GCD credits it to Elias tentatively, but it’s got to be him. Warren Kremer likely did these covers’ layouts. The Rev. Is it a robot/zombie hybrid, with those mechanical parts flying out of it? Is this where Lyz got the idea for her remote-controlled zombie army? Gamera977 I was wondering about the gear and nut as well. bgbear_rnh So is the ghoul mechanical or did someone throw a clock at him at about 200 mph? Flangepart This will happen when you try to choose between Donald or Hillary. Eric Hinkle You mean I’m not the only one who wonders every four years why I haven’t run off to live in a cave in the desert with rattlesnakes and coyotes for neighbors?

My complicated theory is the cover was done first, the guy became a robot when the story was done, and the mechanical parts were added to the cover to match it to the story. That’s just a guess, though. The issue can be read at Comic Book Plus. Ericb Hey, it’s only eight more months.

God bless you, sir. Rodford Smith When i first saw that as I kid I thought it was the greatest movie ever. Atomic powered, radio-controlled zombies built by a Nazi mad scientist bankrolled by a gangster to get even with other gangsters who ratted him out. First time I saw it as an adult I realized it was a parody. :-) The Rev. She was probably more likely to have seen that, I suppose. I saw that last year at B-Fest. It was a good start. I had a fun time with it. Especially the concluding fight.
