Your Nightmare Fuel: The birds and the... flies?

You really don't want to know how this ends...
But if you do, you'll find it in House of Mystery v.2 #1. Oh God, I think I'm gonna be sick...

I think we need another Frederic Wertham to clean comics up a bit...

Or at least my blog...

Because I'm partly trying to see how far I can push Nightmare Fuel before people start pulling it from their blog rolls.

House of Mysery IS Suggested for Mature Readers after all.

True, but I think there's a part of me that resents DC/Vertigo for taking venerable, classic DC concepts, and dragging them kicking and screaming into the Vertigo world, where they instantly become Not Suitable For Kids.

I mean, Alan Moore covered a lot of icky ground in Swamp Thing, but to my memory he never had to go as explicit as that panel you posted.

If someone at Vertigo wants to do a comic with bug-f*cking, more power to them. But why do you need to call it House of Mystery?

Ok, rant over.

I READ that, and it was scary as heck.

So... too far for this feature?

(Keep in mind I once posted a picture of Celine Dion. With no warning.)

Siskoid-

For my money, this is definitely nightmare fuel, so its appropriate.

Is she a tiny person or is that a giant fly?

It is a giant bug...

I had a physically remove myself from the issue and put it in another room to stop myself from reading the issue any more

I felt the same way about Identity Crisis.

While I'm fine with a giant bug and what follows next in a horror comic, I had the same reaction to ID Crisis. It was far more disturbing and an example of what I would find going too far for this blog.
