Happy Halloween!

May your costumes be spooky and may your plastic pumpkins overflow with candy tonight!

To celebrate the season, below is a TV spot for the original "Halloween" when it aired in 1996 on the USA Network. Believe it or not, I had never seen "Halloween" before this (though I had watched some of "Halloween II" through my fingers when I was little), but upon watching this commercial I was so stoked that I plopped down and watched it for the very first time...and then bought it and watched it about a hundred times since.

For an extra Halloween treat, if you've still not read my short story--"White Ghost"--that I wrote a couple years ago for the official "Halloween" franchise, what better day to read it than on October 31st? The story is meant to be a companion piece to that original film and tells the story of the man who lost his dingy coveralls--and his life--to Michael Myers...

Happy Halloween! Beware the Bogeyman!!

Ahhh, White Ghost! As you well know, this is the story that first hipped me to your writing talents! One of my absolute faves from the Halloween Comics team!
