Dr. Squid's Smorgasbord of Terror

DR. SQUID'S SMORGASBORD OF TERROR

Originally planned as a one-shot, this is an all-movie-review zine. I had such a good time making it, I decided to try another four issues, mixing b-movie reviews with articles on obscure and oddball pop culture stuff. Four issues has turned into 12 so far... SOLD OUT.

Zine #5

ZINE

This was the second appearance of Dr. Squid - it was a full-page ad for my comic shop that I drew for a local underground music fanzine called "Zine" (issue #5, 1994). The circled part says, "Line up if you dare at DR. SQUID'S SMORGASBORD OF TERROR!"

Windows #12

WINDOWS #12

This was the first appearance of Dr. Squid!

WINDOWS was a small press comic book I self-published 16 issues of in the 90's and this is issue #12 from 1992. I wanted to create a cover that was like a schlocky b-movie type poster, complete with bikini-clad babes chained up, a mutated scientist in a lab coat, all set in an underground lab and framed with exploitive bursts and boxes. A few of the exclamations include "Warning! Contains Scenes of Graphic Weirdness!" "In Brain-Melting Black and Widowmaker White - Sharp Contrasts May Be Too Much For Those With Heart Conditions!" and my favorite, and the punchline for the whole thing, "Caution: Any story based on his issue's cover illustration would be too shocking for human minds to comprehend, therefore, none is included here." That's right - there is no Dr. Squid story inside - he's just on the cover! As you can see, Dr. Squid is a bit more monsterous in this first incarnation - his head is larger, he has four eyes and one hand is really big. SOLD OUT.
