Monster of the Day #1298

When a Tex Avery cartoon goes horribly wrong…

  • Beckoning Chasm

    “Ha! I bet their so-called ‘hot sauce’ isn’t hot at all!”

  • 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?

  • Ken_Begg

    No, that would have been Creature with the Atom Brain.

  • Chris Metzinger

    I had heard that Charles Bukowski could have some epic blow-ups, but I think this might be a bit of artistic license…

  • Luke Blanchard

    The original cover blurbs a story called “Break-Up!” which has an image of a smashed robot with its eye hanging out. 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.

    Hey, it’s only eight more months.

    Eight … More … Months …

    I might have said this before, but it increasingly true: Luke has not written more material for this site in the last few years than I have. 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.
