MY COMMENTS:

Afraid of the dark?

I guess everyone is, a little. Why else would the whole Vampire shtick have arisen? Sunlight kills him, but he kills you at night. He rules the night creatures (bats, wolves, disco clubbers). He’s got a big old dark cloak. Even before labor day, you won’t see him wearing light colors; he goes for black with a touch of red.

The Doctor is in

Here’s the world’s most famous (and perhaps the only) Latverian. It’s Doctor Doom, nemesis of the Fantastic Four. He is a great scientist (but evil), has some magic powers (Mom was a witch) and has really cool armor which projects blasts of energy, gives out a massive electric shock if touched and even allows Doc to survive in Space or underwater. He is able to transfer his consciousness into any nearby being which probably explains why he keeps winning Latverian elections.

Almost reincarnated

The latin root “carn” means “flesh”. Think “carnivore” or Art Carney. So reincarnation is returning to flesh which is what Imhotep does in the excellent umpteenth remake of “The Mummy”. Starring Brendan Frasier, this film and its two sequels is a comedy/horror mash up like “Ghostbusters”. After being summoned from the dead, Imhotep gradually rebuilds his body. My painting shows him nearly back except for some mouth issues.

The Mummy looks very delish, deliciously wicked!! I'm glad he is slow and I can run fast.

Wrong Mummy, girlfriend. It's Kharis who limps. Imhotep gets around but is terrified of cats.
