Reading Room: BLACK CAT MYSTERY "Halloween Nightmare"

Here's a topical terror tale about Halloween from Black Cat Mystery #34 (1952)
Penciled by Many Stallman and inked by John Giunta.
Unlike many other horror stories (like "Supreme Penalty" and "Invasion"), when this one was reprinted in Black Cat #52 (two years later), nothing was altered!

Mars STILL Attacks...15 years later!

It's almost Halloween, and, in a fit of nostalgia, I searched the Net for Mars Attacks. (I worked for Topps when the movie came out in 1996!)
Imagine my surprise to discover...thanks to the WayBack Machine, that the site was operational until July of 2011, and still exists HERE!
If you want to see a classic example of pre-Web 2.0 site-making, have a look!
It's retro-kool!

Don't miss them!

1953 War of the Worlds Posters

Because Halloween makes me think of War of the Worlds, here's a link to a batch of 6 limited-edition posters from the first (and best) movie version of HG Wells' novel.

Photographed from the original posters (not from second-generation repros, tiny pix in books or low-rez internet files), the art has been lovingly-restored and digitally-remastered.
And, best of all, every one of the posters features those really-kool Martian war machines!
And there's even a couple of foreign versions...

Enjoy! ;-)
