I enjoyed Ken's previous post about Weird Mystery Tales #3 and was surprised to see a Kirby photo-collage in a horror piece. I had seen Kirby use the device in other genres before, so I'm not sure why it seemed unusual. I might have been thrown more if it had been a romance yarn, so that evening, in a hypnogogic state and ever trying to think up ways to pad out the pagination of my Mome story for book form, I decided to try my own. Kirby seemed to always use planets, but the only round images I could find were tape spools. The end result is mostly a page that took two days to complete instead of a month.
