The Curse of the Maladroit Penguin 11

 According to Wikipedia, the popular character, Igor, originated with the first Frankenstein film in 1931, although he was called Fritz in this film. Fritz was a composite based on a character in the play Presumption, or, the Fate of Frankenstein, in which he was played by Robert Keeley. Mary Shelley's Dr. Frankenstein did not have a lab assistant and knew nothing of any Igors, or Eyegors, or Marty Feldmans.

The Igor in this comic, and in many other stories and half-finished novels by yours truly, is Polydoor, one of my imaginary companions (I have many, but not one of them will give me any money, or smite my enemies, so what good are they!)
