Well, we made it through another year, somehow. And if the pandemic didn't git ya-- and if you've been following the oh-so very simple, scientifically proven rules for the last few years to do your part, (seriously, this should NOT be this hard, people OMG), then you are absolutely invited to the AEET New Years Eve Bash of 2021-'22 today / tonight! Yes, Mr. Karswell has for you quite literally THE hottest ticket in town as we take a look at an eruptingly funny recreation of Pompeii's final festive blow-out, presented in a very wild, updated party theme format, courtesy of the April 1957 issue of From Here to Insanity V3#1. This one also has some very amazing art work from good 'ol reliable, Bob McCartney, --he created that crazy cool cover design as well! And if that isn't enough, I've also included some fun party game ideas from the same great, goofball issue. So come on, liven up that shindig with some va-va-va-voom violence! And of course it's Friday, so that also means it's time for some frightening fun... first up, we travel back to the 60's for a familiarly doomed New Years Eve excursion into the eerie realm of the supernatural, via the June 1966 issue of Ghost Stories #14. Hope everyone made it through the year without too much drama or tragedy, and here's a hopeful toast for a more normal 365 days in 2022! Salute!
