In which your pal lets you know he’s going to be taking it easy for a few days.

§ January 21st, 2013 § Filed under low content mode § 6 Comments

So I finally got my mitts on my very own copy of Four Color Fear, Fantagraphics’ collection of 1950s horror comics, and I think I’ve already decided these two panels (featuring what an unwanted zombie house guest does to torment his hosts) are my favorite so far:

In fact, as I was looking up the Fantagraphics link for the book, I discovered that the preview PDF file you can download from there has the very story those panels are from! So Geez Louise, go check it out already.

Anyway, just checking in here today to let you know that I’m going to be in Low Content Mode for the next few days. “Like you’re not already, Mr. Reduced-Blogging-Schedule?” Yeah, I know…and I’ll thank you not to mock my fine family name of Reduced-Blogging-Schedule and its proud history. But it just means I’ll probably just be image-heavy the rest of the week, with less of my blather spoiling things. Things will be back to normal, or whatever passes for it, soon. Mark my words, though…I’m still here, keeping my eye on you. Yes, you. I see what you’re doing. Stop that!

    Of course, the real problem here is that the husband and wife have twin beds. I’m surprised they think the zombie upstairs is their biggest issue.

    Okay, it’s story time again:

    I used to babysit for the son of some friends of mine, and as such, on his third birthday (he’s about eight now), I was invited to his birthday party, along with my boyfriend, and another of our friends so the parents didn’t go insane. Various gifts were given, but one in particular is of note, and relevant to the story. One of their relatives whom they don’t see very often got their son a drum set, and then there was a horrible, pain sound like a wail…

    …that came from me, and was followed by a head-table, because if you have small children, and you have an object that makes noise, that child will keep making that object make noise until it dies. And the ‘dying’ process is twice as long the time when it works correctly. Fortunately for me, the drum set was ‘broken and they had to put it away’.

    In comic-related news: doesn’t it look like she went to bed in a mini skirt.

    Sorry, Mike. I don’t know how to turn off my web-cam.

    Oh, are you any relation to Sir Peter Ainsley Reduced-Blogging-Schedule of Windinghamthorpe?

  • Mikester says:

    Prankster – How dare you mention that man’s name to me. Good day, sir. …I said good day.

    I think I saw that drummer at the Empty Bottle.
