“No one wants to be alone on New Years Eve…” and so begins this eerie tale by Joe Kubert (School of Cartoon Art) from Scholastic Magazine’s WEIRD WORLDS #4 from 1980– a tale that feels a lot like a leftover precode classic if you ask me. Weird Worlds was sort of like Dynamite Magazine in that the content was aimed more at kids, but unlike that series, WW contained articles of a darker, sometimes more science fictiony nature. This issue for example features all kinds of fun junk about zombie movies, UFOs, short fiction stories from John Collier and Henry Slesar, hilarious epitaphs and horror jokes, assorted weird ‘n true facts, movie previews (Saturn 3 in this ish) and even lends an ear to “weird” music like Alice Cooper, Devo, and Iggy Pop. I believe WW only lasted 8 issues and fyi: one or two of the other issues I have contain scary comic stories by Steven Bissette.

Anyway, HAPPY NEW YEARS, everyone!
