A Nasty Way to Kick of the Last Week of the Countdown!


By Shawn Robare

Kicking off the last partial week of the 2013 Countdown to Halloween with the head vampire, so to speak, sticker number numero uno, 1a&b, Nasty Nick and Evil Eddie!

28 - Nasty Nick

The concept in this painting is just so perfectly beautiful.  As a parody of the Cabbage Patch Kids, to have a Vampire kid seducing a Barbie Doll is just, so, darn, perfect.  My only complaint with the art in this one is that the bat, star and moon muddle up the image and aren’t needed in the slightest.  Series one, John Pound.  Sigh…

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 Cody, the Crooked Ninja Turtle Sensi. Be sure to check them out as well.

    The moon would be okay if they had stopped there, but the bat does add too much. Fun card, though!

    This is one of my favorite cards of the entire series. Right there with Eerie Eric/Beserk Kirk.

    I agree with Joe. While I think the bat is a little much, and the star even, I would argue for the moon. Adds a bit of atmosphere. Maybe even a few gray clouds to obscure the moon a bit.
