3MY Round-Up: Spooky Season Coming
Rounding up the last couple of weeks of news...!
In The Beginning
So, we are on the lead-up to Halloween. We are yet to get our decorations up, but some nearby have. Some of the darker comics are coming out - as evidenced by my news and reviews below.
Have you seen Werewolf By Night on Disney+? I found it extremely enjoyable and found the tone and pitch of the story to be perfect.

Special Offers & Sales
ShortBox has its comics fair now on.
SB Comics Fair is a digital comics festival- all the comics are pdfs (no shipping costs or waiting...), and 100% of proceeds go directly to the artists (minus stripe and Paypal fees... which go stripe and Paypal). The quality across the board this year is incredibly high, which I truly think is indicative simply from browsing. All comics are listed along with a blurb and multiple preview pages- as ever, I believe the proof is in the pudding in giving you a good look and feel for these books.
There are some excellent books here with a lot to choose from - go check them out here.
