The Grim Reaper often shows up in the comics, sometimes in unusual ways.
A recent Lola cartoon puts the Grim Reaper in the pose Marilyn Monroe made famous in the movie, “The Seven-Year Itch.” That’s where she’s standing over the subway grate enjoying the breeze as the passing train blows up her skirt.
Lola wryly comments, “You should move off the grate. You’re losing the whole ‘fear’ element.”
Hey, don’t fear the Reaper!
And over in the weird world of little Lio, he’s picking up skulls the G.R. has dropped. Anyone have a clue what the joke is here?
