Sadly, we're into the home stretch on this charming little series, but it ends on something of a high note, as a six year old goes to hell.

Hell had better watch out! )

Following on from Part 1, may I present the continuing adventures of Stanley and his Monster, as envisioned by Phil Foglio in 1993.

Yes, this is the one with the scruffy blond dissolute urban magician, oh, and a Foglio created sexy demoness.

Mercifully for us all the weasels do NOT get explained )

Following on from [personal profile] sweettart1823 's postings from Kevin Smith's Green Arrow series, I thought it prudent to present the earlier attempt to update the concept of "Stanley and his Monster" for the DCU

"Stanley and His Monster" started as a back up feature in "Fox and the Crow" in 1966, it was... and let's be polite here, never exactly rib-busting stuff (as noted in this revamp, this was a time when "Leave it to Beaver" and "I Love Lucy" were as racy as society got), but the notion of a lonely, overimaginative six-year-old boy who couldn't have a pet due to being allergic to ALL of them, and finding a friendly, and hypoallergenic, monster living in the nearby sewers was a nifty one. He DID ask his parents if he could bring a 9 foot tall red hairy monster to live in the house as a pet, and they agreed, assuming he wasn't being serious, a dangerous thing to do in the DCU.

Partly (and openly) inspired by Calvin and Hobbes, this revamp was written and drawn by Phil Foglio (who probably needs little introduction on this forum), and dates back to 1993. 1993 was not a good era for the notion of "cute" or "fun" comics, as this cover gently pokes fun at..

If you're averse to cute fun, you might want to avoid this )
