A Revenge of Spooky Sunday Post

I’ve been following the work of writer Cullen Bunn since encountering the Dark Horse ComicsHarrow County tales several years ago. That story cycle ticked all the boxes for my tastes in supernatural fiction, and has been featured here on the SkeletonPete site in the past. So, I’m excited to share the news of the New York Times best selling author’s newest creepy chronicle called The Ghoul Next Door.

Even so, there are those of us who have a taste for “Alt Xmas” decorating and NECA Collectibles obliges with this manageable manifestation of villainy, a seasonal version of The Fiend.

If Pinnochio’s refrain “I’ve got no strings to hold me down” denotes an unfettered freedom to create then the folks at Super7 have picked a perfect starting point for their new collaboration with The Walt Disney Company. Over the last several years Super7 has built a collectibles line that reaches into the recesses of things you always wanted that nobody made and/or things your Mom wouldn’t buy for you that no one makes anymore.

From movie, music, and cartoon characters, to Major League Baseball players and team mascots, the company has quickly filled the void for pop culture enthusiasts.
