Thud. Thud. Thud. Something is following you. You pick up your step. You start to run. Thud. Thud. Thud. You stumble. You get up. You start to run again, but no matter how fast you move, you cannot escape...day sixteen of Spooky covers. Today's behemoth is Vault of Evil #12:
This cover falls into a category I call The Ironic Death. On these covers an individual meets his/her demise in an unexpected, but usually appropriate, fashion (which might be loosely called “ironic,” although that term is often mis-used; I'm looking at you, Morissette). The Ironic Death is often closely related to Revenge (discussed here), but it typically takes it to a whole ‘nother level.
This particular cover is pretty standard, so it only rates one scream; but how can you not love how that witch is gonna get her just desserts? That's a lot of men to have murdered! And shouldn't her newly deceased husband be among them? How long do you have to wait after you die until you can start haunting someone?
One scream for you.
