The Friday Back Issue Bin: Oct. 27 - Oct. 31, 2008

'Chucky'It was a delightfully dreadful Halloween Week here at Splash Page as we geared up for the day in which we can wear our favorite superhero and villain costumes out on the town and not have to deal with strange looks from the general public. In case you were busy getting your costume ready and missed something, here's a rundown of the big news from this week:

- This week, we packed in five days worth of exclusive horror previews, setting it off with a look at Jason Henderson’s “Sword of Dracula: The Dracula War."

- We followed that up with Viper Comics’ upcoming “Attack of the Killer Tomatoes” series.

- Devil's Due made Reality TV even more horrifying with a look at their new “Chucky” comic.

- The fine folks at Boom Studios gave us a trifecta of terror with first looks at “Fall of Cthulhu: Apocalypse,” “Zombie Tales” and “Salem.”

- Finally, Dark Horse capped off the frightful festivities with a look at where it all began with an eight-page story from “Creepy” Archives, Vol. 2.

- But it wasn’t all don’t-read-‘em-in-the-dark previews during Halloween Week! “Hellboy” and “Buffy” writer Christopher Golden reminded us all about the magic (or should we say, “magik”) of Halloween.

- And Neil Gaiman announced that he will be the producing the "The Graveyard Book" movie.

- With all of the Halloween goodness going on around here, you’d think there was no new comic news – and you’d be wrong! For starters, Robert Downey Jr., Don Cheadle and Jon Favreau were all officially confirmed for “Iron Man 2” AND “The Avengers.”

- “Watchmen” stars Carla Gugino and Malin Ackerman talked about their mother/daughter dynamic in the film.

- We took you behind these scenes at the “Coraline” screening with director Henry Selick.

- It looks like a “Preacher” movie is back on track, and we offered up our choices for the cast.

- And lastly, MTV launched – which means you can watch Prince’s “Batdance” whenever and wherever you want!

And there you have it, Splash Pagers! Hope you have a happy – and above all else, safe -- Halloween!
