Such a great story! I love leprechauns - combined with pre-code horror, this equals awesomeness. Thank you!

LOVE THE PANEL WITH HIM PEEKING OUT FROM BEHIND THE ROCK "TIS A FINE NIGHT FOR KILLIN' ME BUCKOES!" SOOOOOOO CREEPY! AND THE WHOLE IDEA OF HIM TURNING A GUY INTO A SCARECROW... WOW.

I couldn't have asked for a better example of Kirby, thanks Karswell!

Thanks, Karswell! I'll be looking forward to reading those comics.

Horror pariah said...

Warwick Davis wishes he was this scary...damn...the implications of what he did to Lanky(i don't think he magically made him into a scarecrow,i think he mutilated and displayed his corpse)and what the doctor will find...brrr.

>i think he mutilated and displayed his corpse

Yes, that's the impression I got too.

This scared me shiftless! :)

Love how the leprechaun pranked them with SCIENCE, too! Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic, after all...

Such great melodramatic writing...the names "Lanky and Beefy"...wonderful stuff. And of course in the Irish myths the "wee folk" were not all happy little guys in green suits handing out gold; they were actually pretty terrifying little buggers. Nice to see that relayed here.

I've never seen any of the Leprechaun movies but if they're anything like this post then I'll add them to the top of me netflix queue.

I remember liking the first one all right. But then I like seeing Jennifer Aniston with a little meat on her bones for a change.
