Plan 9 From Outer Space - "Movie Adaptation"

This one-shot movie adaptation is made for bad film buffs! Often called the worst movie ever made, "Plan 9 from Outer Space" is probably cult-favorite producer/director Ed Wood's best-known film. Its plot concerns a group of aliens whose eight previous attempts to conquer Earth have failed; now, they are launching their ninth plan, which involves creating an army of reanimated corpses to march on the world's capitals and bring its leaders to their knees.

Writer John Wooley's script and artist Stan Timmons' pictures make this adaptation of "Plan 9" seem almost serious, but the goofiness is still there. After all, the alien would-be world conquerors have only managed to reanimate three corpses, and Jeff Trent, a stalwart airline pilot, manages to foil their plan and rescue his lovely wife Paula.  Reprinted in 1992.



Writer: John Wooley
Artist: Stan Timmons

As the 20th century evolved, rational man turned to science to explain mythology that had pervaded for thousands of years. How could a man be mistaken for a vampire? How could someone appear to have been the victim of a vampire attack? Science, in time, came back with answers that may surprise you.Anemia
A million fancies strike you when you hear the name: Nosferatu!N O S F E R A T Udoes not die!What do you expect of the first showing of this great work?Aren't you afraid? - Men must die. But legend has it that a vampire, Nosferatu, 'der Untote' (the Undead), lives on men's blood! You want to see a symphony of horror? You may expect more. Be careful. Nosferatu is not just fun, not something to be taken lightly. Once more: beware.- Publicity for Nosferatu in the German magazine Buhne und Film, 1922
