My Last Regular Comics Alternative Podcast: Halloween Special 2013
Happy Halloween! In episode 59.1 of The Comics Alternative, Derek Royal and I discuss Graphic Classics vol. 23: Halloween Classics from 2012, edited by Tom Pomplun, and several new Halloween- or horror-themed comics, including the improbable Afterlife with Archie #1 by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Francesco Francavilla, and many more titles. It's a cornucopia of four-color fear!
Addendum to to our discussion of Afterlife with Archie: Veronica's faux-Vampirella Halloween costume is not, as I hypothesized on air, a nod to Trina Robbins' original Vampirella design (about which, see the bottom of this page). Mea fashion culpa!

This episode marks my final "regular" co-hosting duties at The Comics Alternative. Founding co-host Andy Kunka returns from his sabbatical nest week to re-join Derek Royal. My thanks to them both for the opportunity to get my feet wet in the waters of podcasting. It's been a fun ride! This isn't the end of my involvement with CA, however; I'll be returning soon to help out with a few creator-interview episodes, and I should be contributing some reviews to the website, as well. So, not "good bye" but rather "auf Wiedersehen"...
