Happy Halloween, fearful ones!

For our Halloween Special this year Billy and Herman have deigned to hijack your ears with a gargantuan 4 hour marathon of horror comics. Because of the sheer length of this endeavor, we've had to separate the episode into two chapters. They are as follows:

CHAPTER 1: ToD meets LoD - Ryan Daly from 'Midnight... The Podcasting Hour' and the Fire & Water Network of Podcasts joins Herman for a discussion of Marvel's TOMB OF DRACULA #12-14. 

CHAPTER 2: Billy and Herman get blood-drunk as they talk Marvel's Vampire Tales #4, featuring Morbius the Living Vampire and Billy's absolute favorite horror story of all time, August Derleth's "The Drifting Snow."

An old segment briefly returns, in addition to our Shoptalk and Recommendations of Raggador bits. Hope you enjoy it, Constant Listeners.

Again, Happy Halloween from Into The Weird and The Longbox of Darkness!

This ep is all about Doctor Strange in MARVEL FEATURE #4 (Sept. '72). This time around Herman is joined by Billy D from the blog Magazines & Monsters to discuss Marvel Comics' blatant rip-off of H.P. Lovecraft's Shadow Over Innsmouth with a version they decided to call "The Spawn of Sligguth!" Catchy, no? In this episode we also bid farewell to Into The Weird founder and podcasting legend Grant Richter, a friend who we will miss dearly.
