The Vampire Fog
When I started Comic Comics back in June, I wanted it to harken back to when my website first started where I did commentary on comic strips. I planned on posting every day in June and seeing how readership went and then tweak it, or change the schedule or just stop doing it.
It also harkened back to 1998 or 1999, when I used to take extra copies I had of comic books, create new covers for them, then write jokes and humorous observations in them. I called the 11-issue series, Comic Comics and comics would range from common Marvel and DC to more obscure comics to rare independent comics. I enjoyed doing it and the humorous analysis would return in 2008 in a much more convenient way. I still enjoy doing and even regretted ending "Losers Are Made, Not Born" but I felt that Tauy Creek needed to focus more on writing but I came to realize that I needed something going more than just once a week if I wanted to maintain readership so I debated on what to do and decided to return to my roots of comics mockery.
Tonight, I'm going to attempt to return to the original format of Comic Comics with Weird Horror #1 from St. John Comics and the story "The Vampire Fog".
I hope I never die on a text box. That seems so embarrassing. Like dying of auto-erotic asphyxiation.

"You sailors are just drunk all the time, aren't you?"
