If you haven’t realized yet, after a whole week of making up scary stories, that I love the holy howlin’ stuffings out of Halloween… Well, I do, dangit. I always have, and I always will. When I was young, most of the other kids loved it ’cause they got to go trick-or-treating for candy, but I always loved it ’cause I loved monsters, ghosts, scary stuff… and candy, too.
And I still love it for the same reasons. Well, not so much for the candy — I’m trying to cut back. (Yeah, “trying” being the operative word here.) A whole holiday, devoted to spooks and specters, to werewolves and wizards, to giving us all a chance to step out of our humdrum lives for a night and disguise ourselves as someone else — that’s something I’ll never be able to get enough of.
But this isn’t the time for philosophy or for invented ghost stories. It’s time to get into the Halloween spirit the traditional way — with a bunch of random comics covers!
And there we go — everyone have a safe, sane, and spooky Halloween!
