A Poem for Halloween

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween! Thought I’d reformat Sunday’s comic to make it easier to read. I think you can tell I based the art on my favorite movie of all time, “Pan’s Labyrinth”. Well, it’s tied with “The Nightmare before Christmas” but obviously it’s impossible to compare the two.

Also, thought I’d share a link to a lovely bit of Halloween history, courtesy of History.com. The Irish roots of the holiday are almost as fun as free candy. Part of me wishes we kept some of those old traditions:

And of course, it’s the only time of year when it’s socially acceptable to share my deep love of vintage Halloween photos. If you’ve never ventured down that rabbit hole, I highly recommend taking a stroll down the path of the creepiest, most unsettling images you’ll ever see. I’ll leave you with one of my favorites:

Have fun tonight and stay safe.
