No drugs or illegal mind-altering substances were involved here. After six months the Japanese monster movie parody is done being inked. Just like that last novel illustration I had up ("Attempted Assassination"), I nearly abandoned it because of numerous errors. But I said, "Dammit, Pauly, get it done, already." So I did. :P This is the last time for the forseeable future that I'll color in this grotesquely vivid, subtle-as-a-firecracker-going-off-in-an-abandoned-warehouse style. But remember . . . this picture is SUPPOSED to be a horror :PPP   Though the movie kinda stunk to high heaven, I very much liked the "new" Godzilla creature design, even though this Godzilla in Name Only seemed to be lacking the personality of the guy in the rubber suit.Apparently, "Godzilla: The Animated Series" (starring GINO) was better than the movie itself."Pandilla" came to being a few years ago in an AOL chat room, of all places, when I first got my PC and before I discovered places like Elfwood, Elftown and LiveJournal. There was some Latino user going by the name Pandilla Gonzalez13426376 (or some other string of number). Anyhow, I made a little joke about Pandilla being a Japanese monster destroying Tokyo, and it sort of brought down the chat room.Shortly thereafter, my computer was hacked through some other AOL chat room, and beween that and the number of ASL-seeking kids and weirdoes, I got the hell out of there and never went back. "GINO" (Godzilla in Name Only)/American Godzilla is from bad 1998 Godzilla flick starring Matthew Broderick, a bad French guy stereotype,  and a reptilian beast whose legs apparently belonged to some sexy Victoria's Secret model. Movie is (c)Tri-Star Pictures, and the Godzilla name (no matter what 'Zilla looks like) is most definitely (c) Toho. "Pandilla" is public domain, and a common Hispanic nickname.  "Pandilla the Space Panda", on the other hand, is (c)2005-06 to yours truly, Paul J. Doyle.

'Classical Dragon's Lament'

This is a poem about a typical, damsel-eating 'classic' dragon who finds himself besmitten with his virgin sacrifice, and therefore in a big dilemma.


I decided to break out of a rut, and try something completely different. So I got into a little challenge with Elfwood writer Leigh Erickson: If she could write about something OTHER than death, I would write a death poem! So here it is, about a fictitious Egyptian pharaoh named Chepankhtep (yes; I chickened out trying to come up with rhymes, so I left his name out of the poem! I hope it's exciting and fun . . . and has a twist. The Mexican mummies mentioned are no longer literally hanging around; they are in museums now. If you've ever seen the original 'Faces of Death', you've seen some of the Mexican mummies mentioned here. This is the very first attempt I've made at something this dark.

Santa Claus: Medieval Secret Undercover Agent---Episode Four, Slimetrail Skulks SantaVille

---This story is for Elfwood writer Che Franz Joseph Monro, who has been an excellent reader/critic, and is a fantastic writer in his own right--- I admit, I like Episode Three even though it's strange and not for the easily offended. However, there seems to be a lot in it saying 'this story sequence is doomed to imminent lameness after this installment.' It took me a long time to get back to this story, because a great number of things happening in my real life, like moving, getting eye muscle surgery for my son, getting into a couple minor auto accidents, and the holidays---and, of course, getting my Elfwood art gallery up. I'm glad I took a while coming back to this story, because this turned out way better (and way longer) than originally planned.Quick recap: Part One introduces the insanity and wins Mod's Choice despite a flawed story. Part Two focuses on adventure and some cheesy music. Part Three points out the strangeness of a certain religion, and winds up being bizarre (and gets the fewest 'hits') because I was willing to take risks. Part Four also takes risks. It doesn't take place on the border of Orcaporka on the planet Terradum, but at Santa's Village at the North Pole of our very own Earth. If you ever wondered what labor relations were like at the North Pole, here ya go. I believe this is the best one yet. I have scaled back the insane wackiness and taken a more mild, relaxed approach. Slimetrail the Imp has his moment of glory in this story. Brian Claus (the real brains behind Santa's Village) is unveiled in all his zitty, nerdy yet strangely cool glory. When you're done reading, please let me know if I should continue this story or not. I'd sooner discontinue it, rather than let it get staler and triter than your average made-for-TV 'Heartwarming Emotional Family Christmas Reunion Mushiness.' Or, as Neil Young sang so many years ago, 'It's better to burn out than it is to rust.'
