What Things goes there?

(Original novella, art below)

Monsterbrains is a fantastic site (which is why I link to it) but here it outdid itself, showing interesting fan artwork for John Carpenter's The Thing(which I just saw on the big screen today). As a fan myself I find it fascinating. Top-notch work.

Happy Halloween, everybody.

Devil Jelly

I know what the intent was (to sell jelly) of this ad, but somewhere that idea got quite corrupted. And I am glad for it.

Scares from the past

[Enlarge Here]

Illustration that always stayed with me, long after I forgot what most of the actual stories were about (enlarged version is far bigger, by the way).

Dancing Jane

Joan Crawford & Dorothy Sebastian from "Our Dancing Daughters" (1928). As someone who first saw Joan in "What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?" I sometimes forget that she was young once, which is why pictures like this floor me.

From the rather scattershot but interesting RETrOZONe

The mob rules

Artwork for a collection of the little oddities called the Madballs. Never cared for them, but this illustration is much more fun.

Toho monsters

[Enlarge Here]

I love Japanese monster films, particularly those from Toho, and especially those from the late, great Ishiro Honda. This is one of his weaker ones, but still entertaining enough. This poster is neat too.
