The 10 Days of Halloween Horror Returns!

It's that time of year again!  No, I don't mean when networks cancel shows that were obviously bad ideas in the first place.  We have come to the last week or so of October, my favorite month of year, because it contains the best day of the year, Halloween!

I've loved Halloween for as long as I can remember, and not at all for the candy.  I've been Frankenstein* at least three times, Dracula twice, and have even gone as everything from Yoda to Groucho Marx to a member of the 1979 Pittsbugh Pirates.  I've even gone to work as the Joker and Jack the Ripper.

It's no surprise then, that I read a lot of horror-themed comics, from old archive editions to Hellboy to manga such as The Drifting Classroom and Uzumaki, to say nothing of comics with a horror-feel, like Dr. Strange or 20th Century Boys.  I also read horror fiction and things related to horror phenomenon when I get the chance.

All this means it's once again time to have the annual JSA-JLA Crossover  Panel Patter/Book Stew 10 Days of Halloween Horror, where I use both of my reading blogs to talk entirely too much about things that are creepy, spooky, and ookie.

If you love Halloween, too, come and celebrate it with me in a virtual forum over the next ten days, leading right up to my favorite day of the year, Halloween!  If you don't, well, you might have to answer to this guy:

Gior-Dracula!
I don't know about you, but I think I'd rather read my RSS feed!

You can follow along with the Halloween 2011 tags on Panel Patter and Book Stew.  Hope to see you in the comments--assuming you don't die of fright first!  MWAHAHAHAhahahahahahahaha!

*I agree with Chris Sims.  If you wanna argue about it being Frankenstein's Monster not Frankenstein, suck it.  Dude has a last name, even if he was cobbled together from corpses!
