Comic Art

Sometimes in comics you run into something that is clearly meant to refer to something else. Such I believe is the villain Kid Karnevil:
Very little is known about the origins of the mysterious being known as Karnevil. Rumour has it that he once died and went to Hell for his sins, but was kicked out because he "scared the staff", in his own words.
OK, you have to love the joke there, but the name? Where did that name comes from? Created by Bill Willingham of "Fables" fame where how is such a character conceived? Why Kid Karnevil?

I went looking for the origin of the word "karnevil" thinking a hint may lay there, instead I was reminded of a bit of my youth. So here's what I'm thinking - Bill Willingham is an Emerson, Lake, and Palmer fan.Enjoy you're Saturday!
