Malleus Maleficarum!
212 – Pop Culture

Skulls were EVERYWHERE in the 80s. Why, people just could not conceive of anything scarier. Don’t believe me? Well, then just pop on down to your local Waldenbooks and/or Babbage’s and prove me wrong! Cuz those are brands that totally still exist, right?

    When it comes to being “adult”, I think there would be more fun body parts to be inundated with than skulls.

    If Max isn’t careful, he’s going to get an Evil Dead situation, here. :o

    Once again, historically accurate. In the distant, harrowing days of the 1980s, we had just left behind the lurid and tawdry 70s, and skulls were considered far more adult than mere sexy times. Children’s show hostesses in tight, tight leotards? No problem! But skulls, OO SCARY MAYBE SATANIC OO.

    If only we could return to those halycon days of tight, tight leotards…! Oh well, a man can dream… a man can dream.

    We had men in tight leotards, too. It was a more progressive time. Also, some of the skulls were lady skulls. Damn fine equality.

    True, but the 80s were hardly a utopia! This comic is set at right about the time that sun lasers burst through the depleted ozone layer, sterilizing large swathes of the Earth. And remember when the last tree went extinct?

    What’s a tree?

    Oh, right, you’re a millenial. And you’ve never felt rain that didn’t leave scorch marks on your skin from the acid.

    I live in a house made of fidget spinners and vape pens!
