The Stiff: Chapter 4: Page 127

I was recently invited to write a post on Bloom County, one of my favorite comic strips, for the comics-criticism website The Hooded Utilitarian. Check it out!

In other, ‘what are you doing right this moment’ news, I’m still working on fulfillment of zombie-poster stuff and reading “The Travels of Marco Polo,” which is awesome. If you like books which are (1) old and (2) basically lists of stuff — and who doesn’t? — this one is the GREATEST. Such an amazing vision of the world.

    Out of curiosity, is “All Holes In Buildings Filled With Zombies” a references to an actual movies or is it just a long title you made up for the comic?

  2. It’s a reference to something from something, but my lips are sealed. -_-

    Right now I am copying all the pages from The Stiff on my local drive. So I can print them out and read them on my couch (I am an old school reader). Now I come across this page again and I still don’t get the last panel. Who is the girl (boy?) next to The Thing-Tape? Is it a poster that hangs on the wall above the box with tissue? Or is it a person Dan is thinking on? But who?

  4. @David – The lack of clarity is entirely my fault, but it’s supposed to be a girl Dan is thinking of.
