This week as Halloween approaches I wanted to share some Halloween themed news in the pop culture world. We have a costume make-up tutorial and a comic book series that are perfect for Halloween. Plus I am sharing some other cool news in the world of pop culture.
Count On This For A Good Time
Lock your doors and gather close . . . if you dare! Once a rising TV journalist, Jerri Bartman has returned to her small Midwest hometown station. Demoted to hosting the nightly Creature Feature, Jerri’s professional humiliation is eclipsed by the discovery that her new job comes with a secret, supernatural duty.
Her missing predecessor, Count Crowley, was one of the last “Appointed” hunters of monsters. Yes. Monsters. They’re real and they’re hell bent on controlling the news and information consumed by humans. Everything we’ve ever been taught about monsters is a lie and Jerri’s only possible advisor is a senile male chauvinist. It’s 1983 and the outlook for humanity is getting . . . gnarly and their only hope is an alcoholic, acerbic horror host from Missouri.
David Dastmalchian’s authorial comics debut with artist Lukas Ketner–this terrifying trade collects issues #1-#4 of the Dark Horse Comics series Count Crowley: Reluctant Midnight Monster Hunter!

The Canary Is About To Sing
Watch out, we’re in for stormy weather!
On October 29, Meg Cabot, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Princess Diaries, makes her graphic novel debut with Black Canary: Ignite. Today, DC is giving fans a sneak peek into the world of middle schooler Dinah Lance in an official trailer that features an original song from the book written by Cabot, and stunning artwork by artist Cara McGee.
Black Canary: Ignite is an inspirational tale that showcases the highs and lows of growing up without growing out of what makes you unique. Thirteen-year-old Dinah Lance knows exactly what she wants, who she is, and where she’s going. She plans on winning the battle of the bands with her two best friends, then she’ll join the junior police academy to solve crimes just like her dad. When a mysterious figure keeps getting in the way of Dinah’s goals and threatens her friends and family, she’ll learn more about herself and her mother’s secret past, and about navigating the various power chords of life. This magnetic story features expressive and energetic art by Cara McGee to match the trademark attitude and spunk of Meg Cabot’s characters and dialogue.
Black Canary: Ignite is available to pre-order now and will hit stores everywhere books are sold on October 29, 2019.
