Tales from the Crypt #8: Diary of a Stinky Dead Kid

Posted by on September 3rd, 2010 at 12:01 AM

If you are a cynical satirist seeking to exploit current pop cult fads these days, you will probably produce something that has zombies and a wimpy pre-adolescent kid in it, and you’d draw it in a painfully simple style as if you were the self-same wimpy pre-adolescent. But you don’t need to be cynical to turn in such a performance: You can be simply, outrageously, satirical. Like cartoonist Rick Parker, writer Stefan Petrucha and Papercutz Editor in Chief Jim Salicrup, who turned the 8th issue of Tales from the Crypt into a parody with Diary of a Stinky Dead Kid.
