Re: Covers: A Month of Spooky #14

Double, double toil and trouble;Fire burn and cauldron bubble.

By the pricking of my thumbs, Something wicked this way comes...It's day fourteen of Spooky covers!

And today's beastly image is Crypt of Shadows #18:

Crypt of Shadows #18

COS #18 belongs to the category I call The Big Reveal.  Covers in this category typically involve a friend, colleague, or loved one who has decided that NOW is the appropriate time to mention that they happen to be a monster (or something else equally horrible).

Now it's possible that these two people don't know one another. It could be that this is a blind date. But the guy is addressing her as "darling" so I tend to think that they are on fairly familiar terms. If this is a blind date, and this guy is still calling her darling, then that proves he's a creep (with or without a second face), and this lady should just shut the door on him now.

I suppose that it's also possible that the guy is not even aware that there is another face on the back of his head. When was the last time you saw the back of your own head? Sure, it seems like someone might have mentioned it to him, but how often have you had something stuck to your face and no one bothered to tell you?

But no, I think this guy knows exactly what's going on. Tonight's the night he shows his chick his fear face. (Which is not so different from his "O" face as it turns out.) Seriously, what is supposed to happen here? A second face is pretty much a deal-killer no matter how good looking it is. And this guy's second face is not so much a "fear face" as it is an ugly face. This'll be a short date.
