Happy Halloween From Zombie Linus!October 31, 2010
Well, it’s Halloween, my favorite holiday. As I sat here contemplating the existence of the Great Pumpkin and anticipating tonight’s premiere of the awesome-looking new zombie show “The Walking Dead”, this is what sprang into my mind.
The story here is pretty simple: Linus always assumes that when (never say “if”) The Great Pumpkin arrives it will be a cause for joy and celebration. But what if he’s wrong? What if The Great Pumpkin is actually some sort of Lovecraftian eldritch abomination? What then, hmmmmmm? And that led me to this image. Linus waits patiently on Halloween night as he always does, and his loyalty is finally rewarded. But Linus is forever changed by the experience, and what shambles out of the pumpkin patch is no longer Linus…it is this twisted harbinger of the zombie apocalypse. Good grief!
Oh, and if you’re wondering where Sally went, he already ate her. Happy Halloween.
