Halloween Comics Fest Is Today!

Calling a spoon a spoon, Halloween Comics Fest is basically the same as Free Comic Book Day, but with spooky themed comics for various ages.

Retro Review: Batman #177

I had been looking for this comic for years, traversing convention floors and back issue bins in more comic shops than I care to remember, refusing to purchase this issue online because that was a goal I had set myself, when I finally found a CGC graded 7.0 copy for $90 in a pawn shop. …
