Another Zombie Monday

It's another Zombie Monday! Here we have a pic of Donald with Bombie the Zombie from Carl Barks' "Voodoo Hoodoo," published in Donald Duck Four Color 238, 1949. Poor Bombie doesn't mean any harm. He just wants to go home. Originally, Barks drew Bombie with wide, pupil-less eyes, but the editors at Dell thought it was too creepy for kids. Consequently he looks like a drunken bum.

Note the no-longer current use of the term "dreamboat." Or it could be that Donald's all a-twitter when it comes to the undead.
