One last Halloween entry:
Alert reader Craig M. sent me the following link from the Comic Book Resources website... "MARVEL ZOMBIES VS. THE ARMY OF DARKNESS"!
The Marvel Zombies will cross-over with one of the most beloved cult franchises of all time, "Army of Darkness." "Marvel Zombies vs. Army of Darkness" is a new five-issue cross-over series to come from Marvel Comics and Dynamite Entertainment in March of 2007, bringing the highly popular hero Ashley J. Williams of "Army of Darkness" and "Evil Dead" fame into the Marvel Zombies world. The cross-over is a rather unusual and special event for both Marvel and Dynamite. For one, it's bringing together one of the most beloved horror properties in "Army of Darkness" with one of the hottest horror properties in comics, "Marvel Zombies."
Based directly on Marvel Comics’ white-hot mini-series and collection, the Marvel Zombies HeroClix will give consumers the chance to collect Zombie Spider-Man, Zombie Hulk, Colonel America, Zombie Wolverine and many other undead icons from the Marvel Zombies universe.
Just to remind you:
...to all the folks that came out for the gigundo Comix Connection Halloween Sale! It was great to see you all and it was great to see those Want-Lists get filled! It's you guys and gals who make us the coolest comic shop in the known universe and we really appreciate it!
"DrawerBoxes™" are storage boxes designed for comics that fill from the end rather than the top. They are actually a two-part container, consisting of an outside shell that provides support and a drawer that slides out of the shell from the end. This eliminates the need to repeatedly move boxes to get the contents of the box at the bottom of the stack since all of the boxes can be opened just like a filing cabinet. And the shells are made of extra durable cardboard, reinforced in such a way that they will support much more weight than the old-fashioned long boxes. Yet, because each box is separate and has handles on each end, they are just as portable. DrawerBoxes can be stacked in any configuration you want and every comic in each drawer is still accessible. You can even remove the drawer in the box at the bottom of the stack and leave the rest of the boxes in place while you peruse your collection.
"Sirus was once a great hero of his city. His days of heroism ended when his friend marshalled the local law enforcement against him. Now, having escaped from the asylum he was locked away in, Sirus finds himself shunned by the very city he had sworn to procect. The fallen hero’s scattered memory and hostile surroundings have left him feeling confused and dejected. And also quite insane.Available now at Comix Connection, natch!
Yet there can be no rest for Sirus. His old friend now controlls the city through fear, but that is not the least of the city’s problems. There are far worse things on the horizon – things could well destroy the city, things that no one can stop. No one except an insane amnesiac who would like nothing to do with saving anything, of course.
City of Daemons follows Sirus’ steadily degrading mental state as events push him on towards glory. Will this unlikely champion be able to pull himself back from the brink of insanity in time to save the city that has cast him aside?"

I know this song is a bit old, but I wanted to test my ability to post a YouTube link... I know I always whine about the poor quality of video on YouTube, but the kids are eating it up, so what the heck do I know?
... and Ronald McDonald is no exception. I found this comic in the stacks at the Mechanicsburg Comix Connection:
So what did you all read this week? I read DORK, FABLES, CROSS BRONX, and re-read CRIMINAL #1 (yes, it's that good), and I gazed longingly at ABSOLUTE SANDMAN VOLUME 1, which by the way is completely awesome. And now I'm going to read CAPTAIN AMERICA: WINTER SOLDIER Vols 1 AND 2... Volume two just came in, and I desperately need to catch up on this book. Later.
... about Comix Connection's BIG BIG BIG Halloween Sale?
Check THIS out from DC's solicitation:

ME: "How come you never see people with BIRTHMARKS in comics? That's ANTI-BIRTHMARK bigotry!"
MIKE HAWTHORNE: (stunned silence)
ME: "It's completely unfair! Not all of us are unblemished!"
MIKE HAWTHORNE: "All right, all right, shut up already, I'll see what I can do. Just stop. You sound like an idiot and you're scaring the kids."
ME: "Cool beans!"
