    Default Favorite Halloween Reads

    From The Nocturnals to Junji Ito, I wanna know everyone's favorite Halloween reads!

    Personally, I gotta whip out some old issues of Creepy every two years or so

    The Bernie Wrightson rendition of Deke Wainscroft definitely deserves a mention (IMHO):

    and for good measure, one more, my favorite horror cover that's creeped me out since I got it in a polybag three pack as a kid in the late 70s...Ghostly Haunts 41...

    What a gamechanger! Only Moore could pull off two major reinventions of the same character (counting the Parliament of Trees one too) in the same run
