Design of the EEK Redux! The No Longer-Walking Dead!

Each week, we post a limited-edition design, to be sold for exactly 7 days, then replaced with another!
With the new season of Walking Dead underway on AMC, you like the way we graphically-show the only way to stop a zombie/walker/biter (depending on who you're listening to)...do something to destroy the head, so much that we're extending his undead presence for another week!
He's available on t-shirts, messenger bags, mugs, and a whole slew of kool kollectibles perfect for Halloween!
So order now, before he puts the bite on you...

Space Adventures #12 by Steve Ditko

Even though it has nothing to do with any of the stories inside Charlton's Space Adventures #12 (1954), it's one of the most famous and most reprinted covers Steve Ditko ever did (excluding Amazing Spider-Man and Amazing Fantasy #15, of course)!

Reading Room: SUPERSNIPE "Halloween" Conclusion

...Koppy (SuperSnipe) McFad (wearing his original costume), celebrates Halloween by trick-or-treating with his friends Herlock Domes and Roxy, and ends up at the Van Welty mansion where the trio inadvertently helps an assassination attempt on the mansion's rich owner.
When news reports about the police suspecting the costumed kids reach Koppy and Herlock, they investigate in an attempt to clear themselves, discovering the "policeman" who tricked them was a fraud in a rented costume!
After the costume store owner gives them the name of the man who rented the police uniform, the now-plainclothes heroes go in search of the criminal...
Usually, SuperSnipe triumphs despite his rather "Inspector Clouseau"-type antics, but this time he not only figures out the clues (with a couple of handy coincidences), but deliberately puts himself in danger to keep the criminals in the store until the police arrive!
He may not have super powers, but SuperSnipe proves himself to be a real hero...

Reading Room: SUPERSNIPE "Halloween" Part 1

You'd think a story about Halloween would begin a bit differently...
...but remember, this is a story about the Kid with the Most Comic Books in America, so it'll all tie together shortly...
This tale of terror and trick-or-treat continues tomorrow...
