A lot of this art reminds me of Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark

I was just coming in here to say that. :D

(Read that book for the first time on one of my very first babysitting gigs, completely by accident--I grabbed it off the kid's shelf as I was going downstairs, out of curiosity--and then sat there for the rest of the night listening to the cat making thumping noises upstairs. Thanks, Stephen Gemmell!)

I know, it's so unfair! Dagnabbit, it's our constitutional right to traumatize our kids into lasting nightmares.

(The Scary Stories books were actually the most challenged books in kids' libraries from 1990-1999, according to the ALA--and they're still at number 7. Most of the bans/challenges are total bullcrap, but for these books, it's like, " know, I kind of see your point here.")

I can kind of see it, but IMO the effect is rather diluted by color. Gammell's art stayed black-and-white for a reason.

Of course, glass ground fine enough to be unnoticeable in food would do little damage. Tuna sandwiches are not actually that crunchy, and the difference between, say, celery, and glass would be instantly noticeable. And powdered glass just wouldn't do that degree of damage.

And that has been your useless pedantry for the day.

Yeah, and wouldn't the glass shards be covered in dooly blood too?

Eh, Simon Adebisi and Ryan O'Reilly did it first.

Also Alan Moore in Swamp Thing vol. 2 #44, in which the Bogeyman, a serial killer, tells his soon-to-be next victim that his first kill was his school janitor, whom he did in by dissolving ground-up glass in his coffee (see veleda_k's comment above for why that wouldn't work).

That is surprising. With Alan Moore's reputation, you'd think he would know what the word "dissolving" means.

I imagine he does, the word "dissolving" isn't used in the story, the scans of which can be seen
