31 Days of Halloween

Monthly POP: Panels of Purpose – October 2017

Join us for our Halloween themed Panels of Purpose!

Welcome to another installment of 31 Days of Halloween! This is our chance to set the mood for the spookiest and scariest month of the year as we focus our attention on horror and Halloween fun. For the month of October we’ll be sharing various pieces of underappreciated scary books, comics, movies, and television to help keep you terrified and entertained all the way up to Halloween.

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

Happy Halloween everyone! If you’re like us, you’re always looking for new ways to celebrate the best time of year, and what better way then to hijack this monthly column! These panels may not be quite as purposeful as previous months, but dammit they are when you’re looking for spooky, scary, and all around freaky images are what you crave! Check out the scariest, weirdest, and most Halloween panels from comics that came out this October!
