Picking up a princess

The time is NOW

This is the BEST time to pledge to my Patreon page. Why? Because you’ll get a bunch of rewards without waiting all month for them! You’ll get your monthly reward package on Monday! So, here’s the deal. I've been posting, on average, more than one post a day for over two years. That's more than 3,000 posts, including 900+ NSFW comics, illustrations and bonuses. And you have access to that as soon as you pledge.

BUT…

I send my backers links to entire folders full of the NSFW content — broken down by category — as soon as the payments are processed in the first couple days of each month. One folder has all of the Evil Inc After Dark pages, in order. Another folder has all of the NSFW commissions. Another has all of the Courting Disaster comics, and so forth. It’s a snazzy reading experience, and it’s a great way to view only the material you’re in the mood for. If you pledge before the end of the month, however, you’re not going to have to wait long at all to get access to these categorized folders of NSFW goodness! I’ll be distributing those as soon as the payments are processed. And in those few days in between, you can still access all of the exclusive content by using the content tags to filter only the stuff you want to read right now! AND you can access the special Patreon-only areas of this site — like eiad.evil-inc.com and commissions.evil-inc.com! There’s a lot to see —more than 900 NSFW comics, cartoons, illustrations and illustrated stories!

Halloween Songs for your Kids’ Party

As usual, the Guigar family is hosting its annual Halloween bash for the boys and their/our friends.  I’ve been working on priming the Evil Inc Halloween Hits Pandora channel by thumbs-upping and thumbs-downing a bunch of Halloween songs. Here is my Top-13 —thirteen! — list of the best.

10. “Dinner With Drac,” John “The Cool Ghoul” Zacherle

Philly-born John Zacherle was a TV horror-show host, and if you remember from my Greystone Inn days, I have a soft spot in my heart for those guys. This rock novelty ditty was recorded near the height of his popularity. PNP20020314

9. “Purple People Eater,” Sheb Wooley

Few people know of the great Sheb Wooley. He was the “Weird” Al Yankovich for classic country music back in the 70s. And, like most of the breakout Country stars of that era, he had a crossover hit — “Purple People Eater.” I first got this song as part of an album called “Dumb Ditties” that our family got on (get this) 8-track tape! I never did quite figure out whether this was a People-Eater that was purple or if this was a creature that sustained itself on devouring purple people.

8. “Witch Doctor,” Dave Seville and the Chipmunks

Ooo Eee, Ooo Ah-Ah Ting tang Walla walla bing bang. Ooo Eee, Ooo Ah-Ah Ting tang Walla walla bing bang. The finest free verse of Ross Bagdasarian, the Fresno-born genius behind Alvin and the Chipmunks. This hit was Bagdasarian’s first experiment with altering the speed of the recording to achieve the trademark voices of his alter egos.

7. Theme from “The Munsters” and theme from “The Addams Family” (tie)

Both iconic musical intros to two fantastic, iconic TV sitcoms, I have to include these on my playlist even if most of the kids are familiar with the shows behind the tunes. Musically, the “Munsters” theme has serious earworm appeal, and I’ve yet to find a kind who didn’t want to snap along with the “Addams Family” tune.

6. “The Blob” by … Burt Bacharach?

Did you know Burt Bacharach wrote the theme song to the Steve McQueen sci-fi horror classic “The Blob”? Me neither. Recording as “The Five Blobs,” the Bacharach-led group of studio musicians performed this swanky cha-cha. While you’re in a Blobby mood, read this classic Phable, intro-ed below… Phables_blob

5. “Grim Grinning Ghosts”

Composed by Buddy Baker, with lyrics written by X Atencio, this is the song that ushers you through Disney’s Haunted Mansion ride. During our trip to Disneyworld last this summer my eight-year-old and I rode that ride about a dozen times. I know the words by heart.

4. “Ghostbusters”, Ray Parker Jr.

Who ya gonna call? Well, if your name is Huey Lewis, the answer is “my lawyer.” According to this law suit, Huey felt that the spooky smash hit stole from his own “I Want a New Drug.” They settled out of court. And amicably so. Lewis has stated that working through the process with “Ghostbusters” producers laid the groundwork to his working on “Back To The Future” — another 80s movie hit.

3. “Thriller” Michael Jackson

The Gloved One’s “Thriller” album made music history. The video for the song was the first music video to be selected by the Library of Congress for the National film Registry. Danceable (if not singable), this is the perfect song to crank up to drown out the din of sugared-up goblins.

2. “This is Halloween,” Danny Elfman

Let’s face it, any of the music from The Nightmare Before Christmas is going to be the perfect compliment to your Halloween party. But this one is the most upbeat and Halloween-y. And if you thumbs-up this one on your own Pandora channel, you’ll get the rest offered in your mix as well.

1. The Monster Mash, Bobby “Boris” Picket

Was there ever any question? There’s no doubt in my mind that this is the all-time best Halloween hit. Everybody knows the words and most of us can do a decent Boris Karloff impersonation to sing along. It’s a graveyard smash.

Best of Evil Inc — Vampires

I love vampires. Always have; always will. So it’s no surprise that the bloodsuckers have turned up more-than-occasionally in the halls of Evil Inc. Here are a few of my favorites.

The very first week of Evil Inc

2005-06-09-Thursday1In a storyline that started alllll the way back in May of 2005, Lightning Lady, former Greystone Inn secretary, goes to Evil Inc to get a job. During the interview, she discovers (above) that the company’s Marketing Department is largely staffed by vampires.

Blood drives and other parties

Since then, the fangs have been bared at Evil Inc fairly often. 2011-03-08-Blood-drive-vampiresFor example, there was a blood drive at the office. You can probably guess who that attracted… 2010-10-18-VLADAnd, of course, there was the meeting of V.L.A.D. — the Vampire League for Anti-Defamation. 2009-07-10-breakroomAnd this standalone — one of my favorites for its subtle darkness.

Best of Evil Inc — Real Housewives of Transylvania

No roundup of Evil Inc Halloween comics would be complete without mentioning the Real Housewives of Transylvania. This was an oddball idea that struck me during a brainstorming session one afternoon — and it turned into so much fun, I’ve done two complete storylines featuring these sexy, spooky ladies.

Real Housewives

2012-10-15-Real-Housewives-Of-TransylvaniaThe first storyline was in Oct. 2012, and it introduced readers to the sultry sextet of scary sirens. 2013-07-15 Comics-adI enjoyed it so much that I brought them back in 2013 — this time anchored by a story about the werewolf woman (Vera Wolf)  dating a younger man. All week I will be highlighting Halloween comics from years past. I’ll also take just a moment to tell you about my special Halloween comic that collects the best Halloween-themed stories from 13 — thirteen — years of my comics. You’ll get spooky specials for Greystone Inn, Evil Inc and Phables — 80 pages of chuckles and chills! And all for only $1.99 at DriveThruComics.

Redbubble, features the design on a wide variety of styles — from hoodies to scoop necks and V-necks (which should make the Dracula in your life very happy).
