On Monday I shared a few of the books being offered this year on Halloween at comic shops across the fruited plains. Today, while we all gather our comics and prepare to dive into our realms of myth and fantasy, I’m going to share the rest of the books being offered!
These are all mini-comics or, for those old timers like myself, they are the size of what we used to call “ash cans”. It’s another fun mix of offerings and they are clearly aimed at a younger audience. But don’t let that scare you, some of these are fun for adults as well!
With this great selection of books that are sure to entertain kids, you grown ups are encouraged to check out the sales and specials comic shops are most likely having next Wednesday as well! Now’s your chance to do something fun with your kids, and what could be more fun than reading comic books!
First up: Ghostbusters!
Publisher: IDW Publishing
(W) Brian Lynch (A/CA) Marcelo Mueller
First time in print! A long-dead gangster is terrorizing Times Square, wreaking horrific havoc on a building that once housed a spirited speakeasy. But the place is now a toy store, and when the ghostly gangster starts shooting ectoplasmic bullets at terrified patrons, the Ghosbusters – Egon, Ray, Peter, and Winston – are called in to nab the speakeasy spook! Written by Brian Lynch (Angel, Spike, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) and illustrated Marcelo Mueller (Lady Death, Aliens), Ghostbusters: Time Scare! serves as a hauntingly hilarious gateway into IDW’s smash-hit line of Ghostbusters comics!
