When the mornings and nights get colder, truth be told, on my cd player in my car I have 2 bands I must play to prepare me for the night when the wall between the two worlds are thinnest and spirits roam free. Those bands are the Misfits and Blitzkid because Halloween wouldn't be the same without hearing Danzig, Graves, TB Monstrosity and Goolsby sing those songs. Just in time for Halloween, we have a collection of Goolsby's solo records on one disc that makes a great addition to my Halloween listening. Though, lets be honest, I will be listening to it all year round. Included here are his 2 out of print EPs A Dream Not Quite Remembered and Under the Witness Stars along with his 2 singles and the song featured on his split vinyl release with the Big Bad all in chronological order. As a fan of physical releases, it is nice to have the digital singles in hard copy and "The Being" on CD as well. The songs flow nicely together even though some would think it wouldn't as this is a great presentation of the first chapter of his solo work thus far before we have chapter 2 drop. The man's talents are on full display as each song just pops and, if you live under a rock and haven't heard these brilliant songs before, they will have you singing along in no time. I cannot even pick out any standout songs as I just love them all. They are just that awesome just like the man himself. As well, the packaging and artwork are fantastic with its carnival feel. Just eye popping and catching. This could easily grab anyone's attention like the music itself. So, if you find a copy, grab it as this is a great package or grab the songs on the ITunes if you must. Just make sure you own them in some capacity. Then, you can hear him howl.

Wow is all I can say after reading this epic final issue of the storyline. Misery is embodied as it battles the Goon in a final showdown! The story and the art are both epic and fantastic as we are left with an ending that brings it all full circle as well as introducing a new story that will be coming soon called Lords of Misery. It looks like it features the goon and that makes me happy that Powell and company are not done with this awesome character yet.

In this new mini series by Dark Horse, a long forgotten Detroit radio host comes back from the dead in a carnival. Along with his best friend he pieces together how he ended up where he was, who put him there and why they framed him for the murder of his wife. This story that takes place in the 1940s is an amazing first issue that sets it all up gloriously and with some eye popping art to go along with it. I cannot wait for the new 3 issues to see how the whole story unfolds from there as John Doe the "Everyman" comes from vengeance beyond the grave a decade later.

Here we have the conclusion of this fun and whacky series from IDW that decided to tie in a classic Real Ghostbusters episode near the end. Both the story and art were amazing along with tons of action and fun thrown in. Ghostbusters fans allover will be extremely happy with how an idea this novel actually turned out. It could have been awful but, it was anything but. Great work guys, you have this long time fan smiling from ear to ear.
So, Godzilla does battle with an old friend in Hell with the aid of Heaven. However, we see which side Godzilla truly answers to! The story and art is great as we get a revolving door or writers and artists with each issue that allows for each issue to feel fresh. This has been a great series so far as fans of the king of monsters will not be disappointed at all.
"Death and Glory", "Shadows of the Valley", the emotional and heartfelt Robin Williams tribute "Tears of a Clown", "The Man of Sorrows" and "Empire if the Clouds". I guess that is the whole album. Well, it is a fantastic listen from beginning to end as they have done it again. UP THE IRONS and always look on the bright side of life with Maiden.
