Destroy All Comics - GGR and Laffin’ Sal

Up today is a new page of Golden Gate Riot for you! This comic features an appearance by the notorious Laffing Sal. She is a spooky mechanical creature that unnerved children at amusement parks all over the country, but she was particularly notorious in San Francisco's Playland At The Beach, which is where this part of the story takes place. Playland was a real amusement park at the western edge of San Francisco at Ocean Beach. Today it is a bunch of condos and a Safeway grocery store. In the War World, Playland closed down, but due to the political instability, it was never torn down the way it was in the Real World.

Here's some videos of Laffing Sal working her stuff. This particular model of Sal is at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, but there's also one at Playland Not-At-The-Beach, a Playland Museum in the east bay.

Have fun trying to sleep after this.

Hmm, I wonder if that thing is where the animator Sally Cruikshank got her YouTube username from.
