Countdown to Halloween 2015 Day 30: Fistful of Blood #1

IDW Publishing's Fistful of Blood #1 (October 2015) is the first of four issues. It was originally published in Heavy Metal #192 to #202 before it was collected into a black and white trade paperback in 2002. This new series is in full color.
Cover of Fistful of Blood #1 from IDW Publishing
It was written and drawn by Kevin Eastman and Simon Bisley:

This issue starts with the mysterious Woman With No Name walking into a western town that was used in a tv series and several movies with the most famous one being Fistful of Blood. The town is being fought over by vampires and zombies. She is befriended by an old man who gives her more clothing since she arrived just wearing a bra and panties.

One of the creatures wants to hire here:

She gives them her answer without saying a word:

There is also a Behind the Scenes of Fistful of Blood section in the back featuring sketches and history:

I have never read the original but this remastered version rocks especially if you enjoy some T&A with your horror.

This is the first screen shot of the actual game. Notice that the Franken Bride is colored differently and has white eyes. This is her really evil look. The good doctor himself makes an appearance.

Countdown to Halloween 2015 Day 27 Bonus: Elvira at Farmville Harvest Swap

Elvira has teamed up with Zynga this year and a game version of herself will be appearing in Farmville: Harvest Swap. I broke down and started playing it yesterday. I mostly collected witch hats and bats. Be warned that she will disappear at midnight on Halloween night so you better play it while you can. You can download the game or play it on Facebook, which is what I'm doing. Here is the banner for Elvira at Farmville: Harvest Swap:

Here is the list for Elvira's Spooktacular:

I started playing level 15 and lost the first round:

Countdown to Halloween 2015 Day 25 Bonus: Elvira on Halloween Wars Tonight

Elvira will be a special guest judge on tonight's season finale of Halloween Wars on the Food Network. Here she is with tv host Rossi Morreale:

Countdown to Halloween 2015: Count Chocula Box

This year's theme for the monster cereals from General Mills is We're Alive. You can Blipp them to life if you have the cell phone app. Unfortunately, I don't have a cell phone but I still got the boxes anyway. I'm spotlighting the Count Chocula box first since that is what I ate first at the beginning of the month. I picked it up from the local Walmart Super Center. The front has the Count and his castle featured but the cereal itself is missing:
Front of Count Chocula 2015 box
The left side of the box features some facts about the cereal and how to bring the monsters alive using the Blippar app:
Left side of Count Chocula 2015 box
The back features a mini game where you have to put the different portraits of Count Chocula in their appropriate timeline. The Count appears in a group shot with the Franken Berry and Boo Berry. I think you can use Blippar to play more games:
Back of Count Chocula 2015 box
Unfortunately, I don't have a Target nearby so I couldn't get the box with the build a castle back.

The right side of the box has nutrition facts and ingredients so I'm not including a scan of that since it's pretty boring.

To be honest, I would rather have a toy inside instead of the We're Alive feature.
