Some fun Halloween themed Archie comic book covers:







Deborah Walley carves a pumpkin!

Deborah kind of looks like Tina Louise :)

No quiz today

It's been a busy week my Birthday was Sunday and I had family in and out over the last couple days...Oh and I just got home from working a 12 hour shift with no break, hooray! In any case I am completely brain dead and just don't have the energy to put a quiz together tonight...so no quiz. Instead I'll just post some pretty, pretty pictures...like this one :) I drew this awhile back and since Halloween is only a few days away it seemed appropriate!

Veronica Lake gets ready for Halloween!

Sophie Reade gets ready for Halloween!

Settling the Lynda Carter Debate


A couple of years ago I had a Wonder Woman theme week here on The Skullcave. As part of the celebration I posted a short biography, some videos and a few pictures of the amazingly wonderful Lynda Carter! One of the photos included in the post was a "nude" of Miss Carter that didn't exactly look real, but didn't exactly look fake either. So I posed the question, was the photo real?

Over the last couple years there has been a small ongoing debate over whether or not the photo was real. The theories ranged from no it wasn't real, but an early photo manipulation that appeared in a fake Playboy magazine used in the movie Apocalypse Now. To being an entirely real photo from an unpublished Playboy set.

If you want to read the original post/ comments click here.

In any case the debate gets pretty involved but a recent addition from an anonymous commenter may finally answer the question. An anonymous comment that seems to come from Lynda Carter herself. (BTW I know it's the internet and that anyone could have left the comment but it seems a bit legit)

"I heard about this from a friend of my son. To clear it up that photo is not me! The real photo is in Hugh Hefners vault with instructions it's to be destroyed upon his death. I regret some of my poor decisions in my early days but that is how we learn- from our mistakes."

And I just wanted to thank Lynda for taking the time to answer!
