I started out to do a simple conversation in repeated panels, but it quickly expanded into a huge page and I realized it was going to be an infinite downward scroll, so instead I'm breaking it up into multiple smaller segments. This has the pleasant advantage that for once I've already got the art done for a couple of future installments so the storyline will be updated faster than once every six weeks.

Late night horror hosts were awesome.

And it won't even be another month till the next one! Drawing this storyline is making me really want a beanbag chair again.

There are a bunch of horror hosts still around on the internet now. I keep waiting for one of them to get the brilliant idea to make a dedicated horror host channel for streaming TV on gadgets like our Roku. The Midnight Pulp channel is already close, but no hosts.

I have on my DVR right now, The Black Cat, Bedlam, and Isle Of Lost Souls to watch from Halloween. I always joke that the closest I can get to feeling like a teenager again is to get a 6 pack, turn out the lights and put on some classic Zep or Eagles. This comic takes me back even farther to when I discovered the world of monsters. And that was a wonderful time.

That's awesome, thanks! And BTW, I realize this is a very low key start, but the story will get cooler. Funnily enough, I've got Bedlam left over from October movie season too. Isle of Lost Souls is GREAT. I think it's the best rendition of Island of Doctor Moreau by a long shot. Also, if you enjoyed Lost Skeleton of Cadavra, you'll get a kick out of seeing the inspiration for Animala in Isle, Pantherwoman.

Great colors/shading and details. Quite possibly the first time Devo has ever been described as "cool." :)

It wasn't until the early 80's that they were, "Through being Cool". :D

Ah the late night Friday local horror show. Dr. Evil, i.e. Phil Morris owner of the famous (infamous) Morris Costumes was our host on WBTV Channel 3 in Charlotte. This is were I saw such classics as the Boris Karloff Frankenstein, Lon Chaney Jr's Wolfman, and such 1950 B films such as The Giant Tarantula, Attack of the 50 Foot Woman, and The Screaming Skull.

Wow, the Morris Costume connection is pretty cool... I've since learned that all those movies were sold as a complete package to the various networks. You could pick up this rotation package of Universal Frankenstein films, 50's stuff, etc, for really cheap, which is why they ended up being in so many midnight movie rotations at the time.

Today movies from the 70's are as old to modern kids as movies from the 40's were to us.
