Daniel XIII; the result of an arcane ritual involving a King Diamond album, a box of Count Chocula, and a copy of Swank magazine, is a screenwriter, actor, artist, and reviewer of fright flicks…Who hates ya baby?

Let me tell ya cats n’ creeps; DC Comics has got one hell of a creepy collection of comics headed your way this monstrous month!

Don’t believe me? Check out the sinister skinny on these revoltin’ releases!

“DC has a host of new monster-filled, action-packed comics that will surely satisfy every reader’s needs for the spooky season.

Some of this month’s most tantalizing releases include DC GHOSTS GIANT #1, a staggering 100-page print that includes three new supernatural stories written by Dan Jurgens, Keith Giffen and John Layman respectively, along with six other beautifully reprinted haunted tales. Not to be outdone, DC is returning to the beloved world of “Red Rain” in SECRETS OF SINISTER HOUSE, an 80-page anthology of terror curated with stories and artwork by Paul Dini, Bryan Hill and John Romita. You can also join Frankenstein and his gaggle of ghouls in GOTHAM CITY MONSTERS #1 as they attempt to keep the cosmos from collapsing around them.”

Here is the full list DC terror titles headed your wicked way:

  • BASKETFUL OF HEADS #1
  • DC GHOSTS GIANT #1
  • GOTHAM CITY MONSTERS
  • SCOOBY-DOO GIANT
  • SECRETS OF SINISTER HOUSE
  • SWAMP THING GIANT
  • THE SANDMAN UNIVERSE PRESENTS: HELLBLAZER SPECIAL #1
  • THE SECRET SPIRAL OF SWAMP KID
  • BLACK CANARY: IGNITE
  • BATMAN: NIGHTWALKER

Now you creeps know I don’t like to lay somethin’ on ya that I haven’t sampled my own damn self, and I’m pleased as poison punch to tell you that the preternatural powers that be shoved a few of these sinister stories in front of my fearsome face (Gotham City Monsters and Secrets of Sinister House to be precise for those of you keepin’ score at home); and from what I read, you fiends are in for the perfect marriage of arcane art and narrative that well and truly evokes the best of our beloved Samhain season… and I’d wager the rest will provide just as much reading (dis)pleasure!

So bottom line; get out of your crypt and make your way to ye olde comic shoppe and pick up each and every one of these four-color tales of unrelenting horror… and when you do, tell ’em ol’ XIII sent ya… especially if you get off on blank stares and confusion!
