Tarot Cards: Predicting the Future, Evoking the Past

This post will be of most interest to readers who:

(a) are interested in Tarot cards
(b) are specifically interested in varieties of artwork in Tarot decks, especially the Major Arcana (the 22 "Tarot Trumps")

and who also

(c) used to read Penthouse magazine in the 1970s
(d) remember with affection the "Oh, Wicked Wanda!" comic strip which used to appear therein.

And if you're wondering what strangeness lies at the middle of that Venn diagram, wonder no longer.

(Found via this link which gives some background as well as ordering details.)

By way of illustration (literally), here are the main characters from the original strip, drawn by Ron Embleton, scripted by Frederic Mullally and published by Penthouse:



Here is a typical page of the strip, showing its unique mix of eroticism and topical caricature:



And here, finally, is one of the OWW (or should that be OTT?) Tarot (XIV Temperance):



Now if only Lady Draagonstorm had seen fit to create the Minor Arcana as well.... I can already imagine the suits: Wandas, D-Cups, Penta-houses.....and I'm sure there will be some suitable analogue of Swords.......
