Grim tales ch2 p16 by bleedman Grim tales ch2 p16 by bleedman

Again I just wanted to try something different, it's always good to try something different.
This one I was sorta inspired by one of my early favorite books I used to read a lot. Back in elementary when I'd go to the library and read Dr. Suess, LOL..I never got tired reading them over and over. And how I love it when they rhyme.

Then came one of his best works " How the Grinch stole Christmas"....and in this's more like

"How the boogieman stole Halloween"

Thanks to the poets for this page

:iconxxpunkgrlxx: :iconaudley: :iconnot-a-prodigy: and :iconpadawan-sielle:

All ye other poets will get your chance. ;)

*foams out mouth in bliss again* |D~
X3 I knew they were tricking him. XP
If Mandy's as terrible as she's been built up to be, Oogie's got even more ambition than I thought. XD

OMG the crow from those random episodes OMG
DanMat6288 Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2008
I take it that the Oogie Boogie Man and Disco Boogie Man (from the PPG episode) are two different Boogies?

I could be wrong but is the whole "dead is the color..." a reference to "Good Omens" by Terry Pratchet and Neil Gaiman??
PhantomAL Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2007

Oogie vs. Mandy. Now there's a match-up for you.

Oh and, yes, I've seen Nightmare Before Christmas so I know who Oogie Boogie is and how he tried to steal Sandy Claws.((If you were wondering))

'A moment of comprimise falls between the four
An eary laught fills the ebony air.'

"Eary" is actually spelt "eerie" O_o

Nice, subtle reference to the Nightmare's opening sequence. I always thought "the face on the moon at night" was meant to be Oogy.
tsilvers Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2006
I just discovered your work. I'm going to have to spend some time going through your stuff now. Your character designs are amazing. I definitely see some Tim Burton influence.

silvermoonphantom Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2006

Could it be? Is the second panel a reference to Animated's Halloween special?
the-angel-from-hell Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2006

AHHH shit oogie booogie is scary
LoveJests Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2006

But you spelled the word "eerie" as "eary"
stargazer420 Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2006
I just noticed something. Your version of grow-up Mandy looks suspiciously like Lieutenant Riza Hawkeye from FullMetal Alchemist. To prove it, here's a pic:

The only difference is that Riza has brown eyes, while Mandy is cool with red ones. And Riza smiles on a somewhat more regular basis.
So I noticed that in the third frame where we see that junior is chained I think that in the poem part it should be misled instead of "mislead". Because then misled rhymes with dead. When it's spelled the way you have it, the lead part is pronounced like deed. So then it doesn't rhyme with dead nor does it work grammatically. I just thought I would point that out. I know it's a small mistake but I thought you would like to know! :) I love your comics and art by the way. I love how you incorporate so many different characters from different shows to make one great story. Plus your stories have depth and a true storyline. I always look forward to the next page. Keep them coming!
