Garbage Pail Kids Ghoulish Halloween Countdown: Day 5


By Shawn Robare

Welcome to day five of the countdown.  Today features a Garbage Pail Kid sticker from series one printed way back in 1985.  Unfortunately, this is one of teh handful of series one cards that I don’t have both variations of, so I only have 25b, Scary Carrie to share…

5 - Scary Carrie

Again, like all of the series one stickers, this one was painted by the great John Pound and features a female riff on Frankenstein’s monster that doesn’t go to directly to referencing the Bride (which I think is pretty damn cool.)  I also love the secondary color scheme Pound chose to work with and wish someone in the layout and design department had thought to use a green name plate instead of pink.

Once again, I’m also helping to organize the annual Countdown to Halloween alongside the tireless and super cool monster kid John Rozum. So if you like what I’m doing over here, you might want to head on over to the Countdown site and check out the huge list of other sites participating in this year’s spooky festivities. There’s also a like-minded sister collective called Blog-O-Ween being put together by my pal the Cody, the Crooked Ninja Turtle Sensi. Be sure to check them out as well.

      It’s pretty bad when your own fish is frightened of you…

      She’s brave enough to go to school topless and only in her underwear. That takes guts, even if those guts probably look prettier than her face… ;)
