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.
This week we have special guest Joe Hill on to talk about next week’s launch of Hill House Comics which falls under DC Comics’ Black Label line. Hill breaks down Basketful of Heads #1 which is the debut issue of the line, we discuss the multiverse his father Stephen King has built and how Hill’s work has tapped into it, as well as play a little word association with the other books coming out soon from Hill House Comics.
As always we also break down the news as we discuss MCM Comic Con London news like Wolverine #1 pages revealed, Giant-Sized X-Men, Franklin Richards’ own book X-Men/Fantastic Four, and Doctor Aphra returning in 2020. We also talk about Jorge Jimenez revealing “bigger” things coming as he’s retiring from Justice League, Tom King and Clay Mann’s Batman/Catwoman #1 delayed past January, a review of some of the big 2019 RINGO award winners, a discussion of the Marvel solicitations, Spider-Man Noir announced for March 2020, and finally Doomsday Clock is finished!
