Reader’s Notes:

I figured that with Halloween coming up it was a great time to get to “Halloween Party”. I loved how Duggan and Posehn didn’t pull any punches with regards to how commonplace mass shootings have become. Right now some Americans are scarier than monsters we grew up fearing.

I got a kick out of some of the parodies in this issue. Scotch McTiernan is Arnold Schwarzenegger in every action movie he was in during the 80’s. Seeing how parts of those movies were blended in was fun. On another note, I’ll never look at “E.T.” the same way again.

This cover is a great political representation from the theme at the beginning of this book. A horrified pumpkin riddled with bullet holes in front of an American flag that’s also been shot. This is the current state of our country.

I liked the artwork on the interior pages. Squishles looks downright frightening. We get lots of great detail throughout the book. The rashes Oliver’s mom acquired were hilarious.

With the amount of adult content in “Halloween Party” this book earns the mature rating it received. If you’re okay with that you’re in for a lot of laughs with this book.

I grew up loving all things geek. I started reading and collecting comics when I was 8. My personal collection has roughly 8,000 books in it. When I’m not doing something geek-related I love spending time with my amazing wife and kids, gaming, and working on cross stitch projects.
