The Zombie Afterlife of Archie

alwarchie4

When Jughead’s beloved pet Hot Dog is killed in a hit and run, Jughead turns to the only person he knows who can help bring back his furry best friend—Sabrina the Teenage Witch.

Using dark, forbidden magic, Sabrina is successful and Hot Dog returns to the land of the living.

But he’s not the same…and soon, the darkness he brings back with him from beyond the grave begins to spread, forcing Archie, Betty, Veronica and the gang to try to escape from Riverdale!

Archie Andrews, created in 1941 by Vic Bloom and Bob Montana, is a fictional character in an American comic book series published by Archie Comics.

Archie is a typical small-town teenager. Generous, well-mannered, but clumsy, he is genuinely liked by many of his friends. Archie goes crazy when he sees an attractive girl, but his two main crushes are Veronica Lodge and Betty Cooper, forming the love triangle driving the comic’s plot-lines.

No, not a joke. Horror Archie. Hell yes. Maybe even literally…

Dr. Seuss’ Adult Humor Book, “Seven Lady Godivas”

1386834436-0

Everybody knows about Dr. Seuss’ illustrious career as writer/illustrator of legendary children’s books like “The Cat In The Hat” and “Green Eggs And Ham”, but did you know that once upon a time the good doctor tried his hand at creating some “adult” content?

Way back in 1939, when Seuss was in transition from Vanguard to Random House publishing, he made an agreement with his new publisher which allowed him to put out an adult themed book of his choosing, and so “The Seven Lady Godivas” was born.

The content is quite tame by today’s standards of adult content, but it definitely delivers that Seussian style you know and love.

Totoro, the God of Death and the Sayama Incident

ku-xlarge

My Neighbor Totoro is one of the best known – and best loved – of modern fairy tales, and is one of director and animator Hayao Miyazaki‘s finest masterpieces.

But there’s an interesting theory that the cuteness that is Totoro masks something much darker:

The rumour says that Totoro is the God of Death, so the persons that can see Totoro are actually close to death, or already dead.

What that means for the story is that when Mei goes missing and a sandal is found in the pond, Mei actually drowned. When Satsuki is asked about the sandal she cannot face the truth and lies about it not being Mei’s sandal.

So Satsuki goes on a desperate search for Totoro, calling for him and actually opens up the door the realm of the dead herself. With Totoro’s help she finds her dead sister and they together go to their mother’s hospital. There, the only one who actually noticed that the sisters were there, was the mother, who also soon is going to die.

Then, too, there is the Sayama incident, a murder case from Japan:

There is also a murder-case (the Sayama incident) which has many scary coincidents with Tonari no Totoro.

Especially that it all happened in May and both of the sisters names actually are May – Satsuki (五月), the name of the older sister that means May in Japanese and Mei (メイ), the name of the younger sister, which is how Japanese people pronounce May.

The little sister went missing and that both sisters later turned up dead. According to some rumors, the big sister saw her little sister’s corpse and went crazy and later should have mumbled something like “I saw a ghost/monster cat (猫のお化け/化& #12369;猫” and “I met a big raccoon”) before committing suicide.
