BURGEONING LADS OF SCIENCE

I'm Benito. I write comics; for example: Tales from the Bully Pulpit, The Tick New Series, Guarding the Globe, Hector Plasm, and EVEN MORE. I will talk about these AND MORE. FOR FREE, on your very own personal computing device.
In Jack Kirby’s 1972 series THE DEMON, we saw the King’s take on various classic horror monsters, killers, and terrors, including a take on Frankenstein literally named Baron von Evilstein, a name that’s pretty on the nose, even for the guy who created Doctor Doom.
Here we see Kirby’s take on the Phantom of the Opera, Farley Fairfax, the Phantom of the Sewers. You might scoff and say, “Farley Fairfax? What a terrible name for a horror story villain.” Let me remind you: the original opera phantom’s name was ERIC. ERIC. HIS NAME WAS ERIC.
"Kids, hurry home right after school and don’t stay out after dark because ERIC might get you!" Jeez.
Anyway. Farley Fairfax, the Phantom of the Sewers. The Demon. Jack Kirby.

    it should be pointed out that “Baron Von Evilstein” wasn’t actually the dude’s name, but a nickname he was given by...
