For tonight's special Halloween round of Friday Night Fights: Ghost
, I'm taking a trip through fellow FNFer Snell's
usual stomping ground, but this time I'm journeying through a darker unexplored corner
of it, courtesy of this seafaring story from Bela Lugosi's Tales From The Grave#2
, written by Kerry Gammill
and illustrated by Kamil "Kurt" Kochanski
Synopsis: A scavenger ship has discovered an old boat from the 1930's
at the bottom of the sea. The vessel appears to be covered by a....thick, leafy, green vegetable substance
. When their diver explores the craft further...
When the crew subsequently encounters turbulent sea waves and then notice two nearby sharks torn completely in two
, they waste no time pulling up anchor and making a quick exit. But they haven't
exactly made a clean getaway
, as they find out when this crewman checks on the pilot and finds....
Wait, was that
.......? Could it be
But where could this strange sailor be headed? And to meet whom
She's looking a bit haggard.
I don't even want to know what happened to Olive and Swea'Pea.
Considering the comic title
, you's think that tonight's fight music
would be Bauhaus'
most popular number. But since the late Mr. Lugosi
was only the narrator
here, it felt more appropriate to tailor the fight music toward our popped-eyed protagonist
instead, so I'm forgoing Peter Murphy's
former band in favor of Fiona Apple
