Countdown To Halloween 2011 Day 31: Elvira #1 Special

I would love to post the entire contents of Elvira #1 (May 1993) from Claypool Comics but that would make for one long post. Instead, I am treating you with the cover and three full pages from the issue.

Countdown To Halloween 2011 Day 26: Evila In Monster Land #15

Surprise! This week's Women Wednesday is not dedicated to Elvira but Evila. She became the "host" of Monster Land starting with #15 (December 1986). Scream Queen Brinke Stevens played the wicked beauty. Not only did she grace the cover but she was also featured in a two-page centerfold. Pictures of her appeared scattered through the horror magazine in black and white while cut outs of her also appeared usually near the headlines of the articles.

The cover of Monster Land #15 (December 1986) featured Evila:

Countdown To Halloween 2011 Day 22: Superhero City Halloween Background

The Halloween background for Superhero City is pretty cool with the demonic gargoyle and the evil moon face. I did make it smaller since the original was five times the size but it still makes for a creepy wallpaper.
