I know, I know, you're excited about this annual tradition here at When Comic Books Ruled the Earth where we take all of October and examine various horror comics. We're going to take a break from Marvel movies and spend some time chilling with some chillers. The eccentric spelling of "spookey" is in tribute to a local rock band called Spookey. They once did a Halloween-themed live show-- a video of which you can find on YouTube-- and I bought one of their albums after watching it. The album features a fun cover of a fun cover of the Banana Splits Adventure Hour theme song and some other feel-good pop-punk rockers. They don't seem to be very active at the moment but that doesn't mean we have to stop being fans of cool local music and cool local musicians.
And it has nothing to do with mylove for horror comics, but this is my blog and I can do whatever I want with it. I haven't decided on an itinerary for this month's journey through the darker realms of four-color fantasy. I imagine it will lean heavily on Creepy, Eerie and EC once again. A smattering of Batman, my go-to Halloween superhero. In fact, I have a certain issue of Batman in mind for my first Spookey Month post. Or maybe it's an issue of Detective Comics.
