Around Comics SPOOK-tacular!


Around Comics Ep. 052

Around Comics celebrates Halloween in style. Join in as we talk with modern horror master Steve Niles. Also joining the discussion are comic creators Tim Seeley (Hack/Slash & Loaded Bible) and Jesse Bausch (Strange Detective Tales). Brent Schoonover checks in on the Hotline to tell us more about his book Horrorwood, along with some of his favorite horror comics. Tom quotes Young Frankenstein for most of the episode, but we still manage to go over the top headlines in Wire2Wire comic book news and read a few listener e-mails. Happy Halloween!
