The fitness enthusiast. The pundits. The blogger. The celebutante. —Webcomicker Dylan Meconis (of Portland's own Periscope Studio) has been dragging the Danse Macabre into the new millennium, one day at a time.

No stereotype is safe (from death, naturally) CEO, Hipster, Boomer... when I go, I want to be escorted out by Death playing its '60s record collection...

Celebutante is my new favorite portmanteau, first introduced to me by MC Frontalot.

These are really fab. I love the creativity that the internet brings me daily.

I would also like to see an update of Beer Street and Gin Lane for MDMA vs Crystal, or TV vs Internet.

Et in Arcadia you go, girl!

These are delightful, thanks. (Why the frogs in the hipster one? Just part of the "frogs, snakes, and maggots as representative of plague/mortality" motif, I guess?)

My inner medievalist thinks these are awesome.

I adore this. Although I am not due for any kind of death, untimely or otherwise, I think "The Gamer" would suit the front page of my funeral program very well.

Love the Gamer. I am a long-time fan of Meconis. She is fantastic.

Did I mention it was an ongoing effort? The sports fan.

I love these and am glad to see them MeFi'd. Anyone who isn't already voraciously reading Meconis's current comic Family Man really should. (If you like stories about 18th century academia, that is. Bonus hot librarian.)

Ah, well; all good things, etc. The last one is charmingly inevitable.
