Fancy recreating a classic Star Wars moment while reveling in your usual Halloween tradition?
Tying to our horror-themed celebration of the All Hallow's Eve spirit, we look back at a turbulent time in comic history that proved to be an essential inspiration moment for many great creative minds.
With an awesome title as such, I would not be surprised if this nifty little collection published by the folks at Abrams ComicArts managed to enter the collection of more pulp horror aficionados than one might inclined to predict. And it wouldn't hurt at all that the subject matter is a perfectly delicate and intriguing topic at hand. A collection of pre-Comics Code comics ranging from horror, horror, and horror to crime, crime, and crime. And that's more diverse than you might thought. The official synopsis:
Own a piece of pop and pulp culture at thirty bucks.
The Horror! The Horror! uncovers a rare treasury of some of the most important and neglected stories in American literature—the pre-Code horror comics of the 1950s. These outrageous comic book images, censored by Congress in an infamous televised U.S. Senate subcommittee investigating juvenile delinquency in 1954, have rarely been seen since they were first published—and are revealed once again in all of their eye-popping glory. Jim Trombetta, in his commentary and informative text, provides a detailed history and context for these stories and their creators, spinning a tale of horror and government censorship as scary as the stories themselves.
Bonus DVD--Confidential File, a rare 25-minute TV show that first aired on October 9, 1955, about the "evils" of comic books and their effect on juvenile delinquency is included with the book.
Check out the cool trailer of the book for a taste of the macabre and delirious dark side of the pop culture.
Behold, the most painstakingly assembled Halloween role-playing ever.
The winner of the Weekend of Horrors Costume Contest at the Fangoria Weekend of Horrors, this costume from the Dutch horror film, The Human Centipede (First Sequence), is indeed a sight to behold. And a sure-fire way to grab attention, one way or the other.
One hell of a tongue-in-cheek Halloween costume. Tongue in butt cheek too. Can't wait to see the Full Sequence too.

And all-consumingly cute.
In a refreshingly break from our ongoing grotesque coverage on this Halloween, an amazingly adorable RoboCop is unleashed on a crime-ridden Detroit.
Kudos to Jim, from Sweet Juniper, who not only made this incredibly awesome costume for his son for this Halloween, but also took the little Robo-Kiddo out to patrol the decadent streets of Detroit.
The boy insisted for months that he wanted to be a robot for Halloween. His sister was a robot when she was his age. We looked at various robot images on the computer and he was most intrigued by Robocop. After I showed him the trailer, there was no convincing him otherwise. He was going to be Robocop. Which was good, because Detroit has a Cancer. That Cancer is Crime.
A few more cops came out to talk with us, joking that they were going to have to call their union because it looked like they were being replaced. "Don't worry," I said. "He's just a prototype."
Now that's one hell of a good reason for contributing to the increase of human population.

But not just any Bumblebee. A fully transformable Bumblebee.
Think that's a little too demanding? Check out this video and you tell me.
Unless you prefer doing Sexy Optimus Prime.
Here's the complete, non-sneakily taken trailer for the upcoming mind-boggling crossover game between Professor Layton and Ace Attorney.
We have earlier covered on the biggest announcement at the at Level-5 Vision event, the unbelievable crossover between two of the quirkiest characters in gaming history, Professor Layton and Ace Attorney. However, we have only managed to put up a trailer of the game of a less-than-satisfactory resolution. Check out the complete, high resolution version of the trailer right here.
As if to dissuade the would-be Captain Americas during this Halloween, we get a first glimpse at Chris Evans as the First Avenger himself, Captain America!
Having provided us a first glimpse at Warner Bros. and DC's Green Lantern in July, Entertainment Weekly is back with yet another superhero reveal, with Marvel's Captain America: The First Avenger.
Still skeptical over the choice of Chris Evans as the square-jawed, ultimate Aryan, Steve Rogers? Then this very cover itself might just change your mind.
Inside the issue, there are some pretty awesome pictures featuring Hayley Atwell as Major Peggy Carter, Stanley Tucci as Dr. Abraham Erskine, Hugo Weaving as a pre-Red Skull Hydra uniformed-clad Johann Schmidt, and last but certainly not least, Chris Evans in uniform... and not.
As mentioned earlier, there is no doubt who is the brightest (or more appropriately in this case, darkest) star zombie of the week. We take one last look at the much-anticipated AMC TV adaptation of Robert Kirkman's landmark zombie comic book series, "The Walking Dead" before its premiere tomorrow night.
Our interest with Director Frank Darabont (Director of The Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile)'s TV adaptation of Robert Kirkman's consistently exhilarating comic series, The Walking Dead, has been well-documented (here, here, here, and here).
With the series pilot set to premiere tomorrow, let's cast a last preview eyes at some of the making-of, interview and footage snippets.
Forget the Dark Avengers. Embrace the Dark Ages Avengers.
Francesco Francavilla, currently providing the art on the new Black Panther, has come up with this cool rendition of Avengers, seemingly set during the Dark Ages. Earth's First Heroes comprised of "Captain Amerigo", plain old Thor, an iron-clad gladiator, and a Celtic Hulk.
In his own words:
So I give you, for the first time I think, Hulk the Druid (a celtic primeval force of nature), Captain Amerigo (from the New World), Thor himself, and an unknown mysterious clad-armored gladiator known as Iron Man . Tigether they are The AVENGERS, EARTH's FIRST HEROES and they fight evils and undead armies. How does that sound? :)
Behold! The Dawn of the Dead Pokémon!
Indeed, Pikachu has seemingly had enough of its Pokémon Master, Ash Ketchum! So much so that it is having Ketchum with ketchup now.

What is really strange in that title? The fact that Jesus is being depicted as a Zombie, or Rob Liefield (famed/infamous creator of Marvel's Cable, Deadpool, and X-Force, as well as Image's Youngblood) is actually working on something?
Just in time for All Hallow's Eve, Rob Liefield picked up his pencil and delivered to us his latest masterpiece, Zombie Jesus. And it is freely available on his website.
The official synopsis from Liefield's site:
MATTHEW 27:51-52 “The earth shook, the rocks broke and tombs opened and many men and women who had died came back to life again. They left the cemetery and went into the city and appeared to many people there.”
The most disturbing scripture in the Bible revealed! Zombies walked the earth following the crucifixion of Christ! Now the 48 hours following Christ’s Death are revealed!
After the crucifixion, supernatural warfare tore apart the Roman Provinces. Zombie Hordes attacked Jerusalem in search of the corpse of Christ. The Disciples were under siege as the Undead tore apart the countryside and an unlikely hero, LAZARUS THE IMMORTAL emerged to combat the Legion of Dead!

The sequel to "The Dark Knight" gets a name.
In an exclusive interview with Hero Complex, Christopher Nolan finally broke his silence over the upcoming sequel to the critically acclaimed blockbuster, "The Dark Knight".
And it is "The Dark Knight Rises". A simple and precise name, I must add. Took some time getting used to, but I'm warming up to it.
Along with the official naming of the sequel, set to be released on July 20th, 2012, Nolan has also ruled out The Riddler, AKA Edward Nigma, as the villain of the sequel, to the surprise of many online boards dwellers who have been following the much speculated rumor.
With that, we had two members (Mr. Freeze has been ruled out way earlier) in the Caped Crusader's infamous Rogues Gallery ruled out. The mystery over who will be the chief villain/s in the second sequel of the universally acclaimed series thickens. With the involvement of Tom Hardy still unconfirmed, there's quite a handful to consider about. Geoff Boucher, who conducted the interview, interestingly pondered over the likelihood of a returning Harvey "Two-Face" Dent, referencing an earlier comment by Nolan that "The Dark Knight" refers just as much to Harvey Dent as it does to Batman. Will Two-Face get to rise as well? It will make perfect sense though, further strengthening the continuity of the self-contained trilogy.
In addition, a good news for many (definitely including me) and a bad news for the 3D enthusiasts, Nolan has also confirmed that he had won the argument with Warner Bros. over the issue of jumping on the current in-vogue 3D wagon, and will be sticking to his usage of IMAX cameras. And that is indeed, something most commendable, both for the director's persistence in sticking to his very own vision, and Warner Bros.'s eventual resistance against a considerably much profitable strategy.
Do check out the interesting interview over at Hero Complex .
Based on a story by Christopher Nolan and David Goyer, "The Dark Knight Rises" will again be scripted by Christopher and Jonah Nolan, and is scheduled to be released on July 20, 2012.

Dying to play with True Blood' Sookie Stackhouse? Now you can. Just not the way you thought.
Unrelenting fans of HBO's True Blood beware: This paper doll dress-up play might just get addictive as Alan Ball's bloody sexy and immensely witty TV series.
Courtesy of designer and cartoonist Andy Swist and the folks at Camp Blood, these paper doll provides all the opportunity to dress Sookie up the way you want to. For those who are probably just interested in undressing Sookie (thus fulfilling some demented fantasy you have been harboring on Anna Paquin all this while), do note that these paper dolls won''t get right down to the nudes.
Designer and cartoonist Andy Swist has debuted a printable paper-doll collection based on characters from the series.
Here are some examples of these painstakingly created paper doll designs. Do check out more of them over at Andy Swist's site.

Ready? Dead Set? Go.
With AMC's "The Walking Dead" making debuting this Halloween, there is no doubt who is our Zombie of the Week. But you will be dead wrong thinking that the TV adaptation of the comic book series created by Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore is the only compelling TV series with an undead problem. Look further, say Britain, for the absolutely darkly compelling UK miniseries, Dead Set.
Ever have that feeling while watching Reality TV crap like Survivor, The Amazing Race, or Jersey Shore, and suddenly wishing an actual Zombie Apocalypse can be fully unleashed right onto the show, sweeping whatever brain cells left in these so-called participants? I have. Which is why I sure as hell love the incredibly high-concept Dead Set.
Set in the Big Brother house, the critically acclaimed BAFTA-nominated horror drama created by English writer Charlie Brooker, "Dead Set", is one UK produced piece of "win" written all over it. Watch the ever-affable host turned into one freaking mad-on brain juice-crazy zombie while the participants engage in full-blown outrageous nonsensical outbreak of the human kind you can imagine.
Running every day of the week this All Hallow's Eve Week on Independent Film Channel (IFC) in the United States, this is something you just can't miss while on the way to the very Halloween itself. Should you miss any of these precious episodes throughout the week, do note that IFC will be running some kind of a marathon of the show on Sunday from 7:30pm onwards.
Quintessential undead watching for uninitiated.
