Some pop culture vultures write about what they love!
TRUNK OR TREAT event in Newark, DE on Oct 22
Family-Friendly Event on October 22
EDITOR'S NOTE: Here’s a different way to celebrate Halloween at a local comic book shop. Like Snickers bars and Super-Heroes. Hey, what could be better?
Trunk or Treat at Captain Blue Hen Comics
Captain Blue Hen Comics and Superdojo Martial Arts are TEAMING UP for an afternoon of fun as we Trunk or Treat and show off our costumes!
Why are we doing something this? Because getting cool people together that care about their community and keeping kids safe is PRIORITY!
What do you have to do? First of all, SOME families go all out and make their trunks look RIDICULOUSLY AWESOME.Other families just want to help out and make kids happy, so they throw some pumpkins in and create low-budget trunk set ups. Both are fantastic ways to get involved. We'll park our cars, pop open the trunk and hand out candy.
There will be PRIZES for the families that have the coolest trunk decoration (but, again, you don't have to shoot for 1st place, it's awesome if you just come and throw something cool together), MOST CREATIVE costume (kids only), and COOLEST SUPER HERO costume (kids only). Not to mention a TON of candy for each kid... for real... you're going to have enough candy to last you until 2020.
THIS IS GOING TO BE AWESOME!

SINK #3 (Comix Tribe, December 20, 2017 release date) “A Head Full Of Wasps”. Story by John Lees. Art and Colours by Alex Cormack. Letters by Shawn Lee. Logo by Tim Daniel. Sink #3 will make you see red. Blood red. It’s splashed all over the pages of this story, seeping into each and every panel, even before the violence begins. “A Head Full Of Wasps” speaks to the buzzing that occurs in so many brainpans in these troubled and violent times - - and the red that is visualized when some of us experience injustice, brutality, cruelty, or abuse and then seek retribution, revenge, and bloody justice. If only everyone could read this story, and then remember it whenever their cheeks flush with anger - - and think before they act. Yeah, I’m a pipe dreamer. I also just set out to write a review. Don’t know why I’m treating SINK #3 like this is a morality fable. Have you ever read a simple but well-written story that leads to your thinking outside the box about oth…
SANDMAN Vol. 1: PRELUDES & NOCTURNES TPB: Sandman Vol. 1 Writer: Neil Gaiman Artist: Sam Kieth, Mike Dringenberg
With Neil Gaiman revisiting the Sandman universe with his new mini, Sandman: Overture, this seemed like a good time to review his original masterpiece. In the first volume, the Sandman is captured by a rich occultist who endeavors to capture Death and make it do his bidding. Instead, he captures the Sandman whom he imprisons for 70 years. Eventually escaping, he learns that the symbols of his office have since been turned into powerful relics used by the mystical community. On a search for the symbols of his station from which he draws power, the Sandman must deal with Constantine, go through Hell itself, and stop a deranged inmate of Arkham who suddenly has power and the sick mind to put it to use. Neil Gaiman likely needs no introduction if you’re familiar with Sandman. It’s his best known work and one of the few graphic novels ever to make the New York Times Bestselle…
