Nightmare Fuel / Platypus Comix

Go To


  • Imagine being a comic book character like the ones in "True Believers", living under the beck and call of editors who can change your life to suit their twisted whims, without a care for your personal happiness. Peter Parker even tells Mary Jane that he considers this scarier than anything the Rogues Gallery can pull.
  • The Mulberry comic "Heiress A Parent" gets pretty scary once one of the wards becomes corrupted strongly enough to try and kill Mulberry and her friends For the Evulz.

  • The last two pages of "Vess MacMeal Starring in: The More You Know!"
  • In Free Spirit, one can kill a witch by trapping her in a mirror, then shattering it.
  • The Big Creepy-Crawlies from the Free Spirit comic "Bedbugs and Broomsticks", as seen for the first time here.
  • From the Free Spirit comic "Junkyard Stories", the ending of the story about the bowl. Mr. Wu's boss, and some of his co-workers, electrocute themselves to death with a malfunctioning server. Mr. Wu proceeds to declare himself the new boss, which surprisingly doesn't prompt any of the surviving employees to ask what happened to their old one.
  • The BANG!-exclusive Mulberry comic "Disney Adventures" has Taffy attempt to cross through a corridor of Princess Mombi's severed heads in order to obtain a banned Disney movie. After she grabs the tape, the heads call upon a faceless woman to chase away Mulberry and her friends.
    Mulberry: Hey, that's not Princess Mombi! That's Nanny from Muppet Babies!
    Taffy: It's true!! She really has no head!!



Not Invoked

  • The "Concept Unification" process used to create the animatronic character bands at Chuck E. Cheese restaurants shortly after they merged with Showtime Pizza. The skins of the old Rock-Afire Explosion characters are removed piece by piece, slowly stripping each of the mechanical skeletons of their personalities, and replaced with completely new, completely different Chuck E. Cheese character skins. Not helped at all by the depressing muzak and deadpan monotone narrator, the fact that Chuck E. himself used to be two characters (Rolfe the ventriloquist wolf and his sentient Muppet Earl), and the fact that a dog character named Dook is turned into a creepy cartoon chef.
