Oh, a ghost by the shrubbery! Or maybe me in a bedsheet.
This Halloween I hung out with my friend Anne as she doled out treats to hordes of kids, and I donned the traditional bedsheet ghost costume so rarely seen these days. I almost didn’t bother because even with help it came out crooked, but I’m glad I did because kids’ reactions were a hoot (the photo’s just a pose; I sat on the stoop with Anne).
The first pair shook my hand before leaving. One boy asked if I was a Mister or Miss Ghost and got agitated when I played coy, trying to get a close look and saying things like “What is your gender?” and “Show me your mustache!” We had a couple of skeptics, too; one said, “Nice costume, but I’m not buying it,” and later another said, “You’re not a ghost!” — but only after peering closely :)
Anyone know a good way to share playlists online? I was using Youtube because it has a lot of music but their ads ruin the experience (I only noticed recently on a friend’s computer; I use an adblocker on mine). I basically want to post online mixtapes but I haven’t kept up with streaming music stuff so I don’t know what’s out there or if it’s even feasible given copyright issues.
Well, look at that — the Vault-Keeper did an introduction for “Midnight Snack“! I’m deeply, creepily honored ;)

♫ October is time for ghostly tunes; this one has cows: “Ghost Riders in the Sky” by the Ramrods.
Another October means another set of Trick or Treat Comics! Eight miniature comics perfect for giving to trick-or-treaters, Halloween party-goers, goblins, etc, Trick or Treat Comics #3 features trick-or-treating pumpkins, monster hybrids, bone-playing instructions, were-comics, trick-or-treating dinosaurs, and more!
Eight 2.75″ x 4.25″ 8-page comics by:

Planning to hand them out for Halloween? You can get all three sets of Trick or Treat Comics for the price of two.
“The Mysterious Skeleton” by Zander Cannon is a fun spooky mystery 12-hour comic — fine October reading, and particularly pertinent since I’ll be making a 12-hour comic this Saturday.
I made the comics navigation prettier and more usable, and made the “sidebar” visible on small screens (it currently lives just above the footer in all views). Onward! (Previously)
