I agree to some extent. Although at the ball she is in a sense trapped - with her feet bleeding, which implies an inability to get herself out of the situation.

But I didn't mean that our Danse Macabre is supposed to be a close parallel of that scene from M and M. More that the idea of the dancers from hell was in my mind when we did the card. It was one of my strong visuals for the idea of a "Danse Macabre", and I hope our depiction, though very different, has a little of that same atmosphere.

I have been VERY lucky to get a hold of an English 1st edition with the Danse Macabre card. Out of curiosity, does anyone else have an English regular first edition with this card?

I have scanned the card so everyone can see it. I have impregnated MRP's website so no pirates can steal it.
