Too Early for Halloween? Not Hardly, Here's a Look Toward Fall 2017...

Written by

It's not quite spring, and already I'm writing about fall. Not a huge stretch seeing as Halloween is my favorite holiday (followed by Christmas), and while we've got a full two seasons to go until the return of autumn colors and pumpkin spice, the folks at Papercutz just sent over a look at what's lurking ahead. New Tales from the Crypt, a Scrooge McDuck x Star Wars "Great Parody," a relaunch of Gumby and new volumes of Trolls and Barbie aside, there's werewolves, ghosts, dinosaurs and even a very modern spin on some classic monsters. Check it out...
