It’s too bad I just missed Gorey’s birthday with this one. On the heels of Clive Barker doing his version of the morbidly merry author/artist’s Gashlycrumb Tinies, in which children meet death in alphabetical and rhyming ways, we now have a video-game version.

“A is for Aerith, stabbed right through the tummy, B is for Bowser, whose bridgework was crummy, C is for Crono, or was that his double, D is for Dhalsim, who had yoga trouble”

The whole thing is available on a poster.

A is for awesome, this poster I need;
B is for buying, I’ll do it in greed;
C is for credit card, mine is maxed out;
D is for debt, and forever, no doubt.

About Author

Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.) Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
