The Eight Immortals! Page Twenty-Two!

Page 22! Click on the above image in order to get a better view-

The main Villain confronts Emperor Chin. When I used reference for Emperor Chin, I kind of steered away from thinner representations of him, just as the previous engravings of Lincoln were a little uglier than the current 5 dollar version. The current $5 makes him look like a super-hero, plays down his moles/growths, his uneven features, his lazy eye and his general disheveled appearance, and it made me a little angry, so I was careful to use a little less flattering version of Chin.

If I remember right, matt had it that Chin had made a deal with this Villian/demon to unite China under one rule and the guy comes to extract payment.
Chin responds with a command to his army,
Villian/demon laughs, confronts and then dispatches Chin's army - Old School.

Matt's Comments-
"Here’s the dialogue for this page: 'I’m Mister Heat Miser! I’m Mister Hundred and One!'”

Hey, just 'cause his head's on fire doesn't mean he's Heat Miser. The ref I took was thousands of years old, well established, and created well before Rankin and Bass hit the world up with their greatness.

Awesomely rad.

Clearly you need to be drawing more comics where folkloric characters slaughter crowds with thunderbolts.

... But then I wonder: where did all the other super(natural)-villains go?
