Judgment of the Dead

Thoth and Anubis weigh a dead soul's heart against a feather; if the heart is too heavy, the dead dude gets fed to a monster.

The text reads, "If I can vomit on the doggie and sneeze on the doggie, why can't I put humus on the doggie?"

This is one of only two full page illustrations in the book (not counting the front and back covers.)

What was the name of the book these are based on? I've got to try and find it to see some comparisons.

It's Deities and Demigod; the 1980 edition. Maybe I'll post a comparison or two next week....
