It’s October, it’s the Halloween Season! It’s the best damned time of year. It’s that time of year when everything freaky, spooky, creepy and chilling gets the Spotlight. You can bet your sweet bottom dollar that I’m going to celebrate the greatest season of the year! I am a huge horror/Halloween fan, have been since I was a wee-young lad.
But aside form dressing up and trick or treating, how will I celebrate the holiday? Well I could just rent a bunch of movies and invite some buds over, or I could do something special right here at New Age Comics.
So expect, all through October, a special Halloween Celebration here at New Age Comics.
First, we’ve got 2 bonus Collection Spotlights premiering the Sunday after this month’s 2 Spawn Spotlights. On the first weekend we have Marvel Zombies, then following that 2 weeks later in Sunday is Marvel Zombies 2. That’s not all though, on the Second and final Friday of the month is 2 more Horror oriented Collection Spotlights. First the Wildstorm created Nightmare on
But Wait, there’s more! 2, count that, 2 Comic Report Cards! The first on Marvel Zombies: Dead Days (the one shot, not the book) and the second being one 30 days of Night: Red Snow.
Finally, the cap off what will be a horror-rific month of Horror is my pick as top 25 Horror films of all time. While I’m not sure exactly when this will be posted, I’ll post it in halves, the first half is having 25 though 14 and the second having 13 through 1. I was originally going to do 10 but…going over the list, I just have so many favorites that I had to stretch it a bit.
We’re also doing a very special Cover talk for October; Marvel Zombies covers for the 3 main series, Vs. Army of Darkness, Marvel Zombies 1 and Marvel Zombies 2. Obviously only 3 weeks since there is the Solicits for the month.
Which brings me to my final note; things like Weekly Reviews and Solicits commentary and Week’s End are all staying. The month is just going to be predominately Halloween based is all, so no worries.
Well that’s all I have to say for now, check out the Spawn Collection volume 3 Spotlight on Friday, followed by Week’s End then Marvel Zombies on Sunday.
Before I go though, here’s a schedule for the month
Friday the 3rd: My birthday! As well as Spawn Collection Volume 3
Sunday the 5th: Marvel Zombies HC Spotlight
Tuesday the 7th: Marvel Zombies vs. Army of Darkness Cover Talk
Thursday the 9th: 30 days of Night Red Snow Report Card
Friday the 10th: A Nightmare on Elm Street Collection spotlight
Tuesday the 14th: Marvel Zombies, as well as the HC’s Cover Talk
Friday the 17th: Spawn Collection Volume 4 spotlight
Sunday the 19th: Marvel Zombies 2 Collection Spotlight
Tuesday the 21st: Marvel Zombies 2 and 3 cover talk
Friday the 24th: 30 days of Night Collection Spotlight

Thursday the 30th: Marvel Zombies Dead Days Report Card

So that’s the main schedule, again, expect Week’s End and when I can, weekly comic reviews like always. As I said, can’t get to the shop today but expect books like Invincible and Hulk reviewed sometime soon. But hey, it’s time to celebrate the Halloween season, so find your best zombie mask and eat some flesh, I’m about to go out for a midnight snack.
