Happy Halloween, Everyone!
This year even I’ve had difficulties getting into the right mood for this holiday and its associated special strip on BMC. But skipping wasn’t really an option – Halloween is and remains the quintessential B-movie holiday, so observing or acknowledging it with a special strip is practically mandatory.
Without truly convincing inspiration, I’ve settled for a simple ‘boo’-scare and a cliché Twilight-Zone-style twist for the final panel. It’s perhaps a bit bare-bones, but falling back on the time-honored defaults is at least suitably B-movieish, isn’t it?
As far as canonicity is concerned, you can freely decide for yourself if this is what Mopey really, secretly looks like or not. =P
Have a safe holiday and try to keep the spirits up – your own, or any free-roaming spirits you might encounter, or who might encounter you.
More on Monday.
