Countdown to Halloween 2014 Day 31: The Macabre Mobile by Jelly of the Month Club and Elvira

Happy Halloween and you may have noticed that I haven't posted much about Elvira this year. So it's only fitting that today's special treat is The Macabre Mobile Song (She's Gonna Run You Down) performed by the Jelly of the Month Club and Elvira. I dig it and I'm sure you will too. Remember to have a safe and happy Halloween.

Countdown to Halloween 2014 Day 30: Gaia Online Shopkeepers In Costumes

Every year Gaia Online throws a big online Halloween party. This year's theme is Demon vs Angel but the fun part is that the shopkeepers dress in costumes and hand out candy. Players collect twenty-two pieces of candy that can be traded in to collect Halloween collectibles. There are some costumes that are anime-inspired and I have no clue as to who they are supposed to be while others are from comic books, tv and movies. I've collected some of the more fun shopkeepers in costume.

First off is Bildeau, a robot, dressed up as Leonardo from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles:

Countdown to Halloween 2014 Day 28: Ultimate Spider-Man vs Dracula Book and Stickers

Ultimate Spider-Man vs Dracula is based on the second season episode of Marvel Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon titled "The Howling Commandos". The book is 8" x 8" and includes twenty pages. Two pages of stickers are also included. I'm only posting a few pages from the book to give you an idea of what's inside. I bought my copy earlier this month on a road trip to the nearest Hastings for $5.99.

As you can tell by the cover, this Dracula has white hair and is not the version from Tomb of Dracula:

Page three starts the story plus features a picture of Spider-Man and Nova (other characters that make appearances include Blade, White Tiger, Power Man and Iron Fist):

The Howling Commandos are supernatural agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and steal the show when they are called upon by Spidey (they include Werewolf By Night, The Living Mummy and The Monster of Frankenstein):

Man-Thing also makes an appearance:

Here's the back cover of the Ultimate Spider-Man vs Dracula book:

The book also comes with two pages of stickers. The first page is found in the front of the book. There are stickers of Spider-Man, Dracula, Man-Thing, The Living Mummy, The Monster of Frankenstein, bats and even spider-pumpkins:

The second page of stickers include Spider-Man, Dracula, the Howling Commandos, Man-Thing, Werewolf By Night, The Living Mummy, The Monster of Frankenstein, more bats and even more spider-pumpkins:

This is a fun little book to read and is appropriate for younger readers. Now I just have to watch the cartoon episode that it is based upon.

Unfortunately, Yummy Mummy and Frute Brute did not return this year. Hopefully, all the monster cereals will return next year. If they do, then I have one request: please put a free toy surprise or mini comic book inside.

Countdown to Halloween 2014 Day 25: Count Chocula 2014 Box

Some of the staff members from DC Comics, er DC Entertainment were asked to redesign the monster cereals. Count Chocula was done by Terry and Rachel Dodson. He actually looks pretty cool here and he still has his buck teeth instead of his vampire fangs.

Here is the front of the Count Chocula 2014:

I actually picked up my first box of Count Chocula during the last week of September at the local Walmart store but I immediately started eating it. I picked up a second box last week after getting the other two in the series and already finished it off. I still miss the toy surprise that used to be included in the monster cereals during my youth of the 1970s. I also miss the taste since they were all very weak this year.
