Day of the Silent but Dead


So, years before I took the gig at IDW, I was running Kevin Smith's old pop-culture site, Movie Poop Shoot.com (a good array of the archives are available for perusal here). I was the site's editor-in-chief, but other familiar faces at IDW now were there with me in one form or another--Josh Jabcuga, Dara Naraghi and especially Scott Tipton, who was my right hand the entire time the site was running. And one thing I did there was somehow persuade talented artists to do the occasional holiday-themed banner image for me. Folks like Mike Hawthorne, J. Bone and Ben Templesmith, who offered up this image of zomb-me in between Jay and Bob. The image is years old but it seems like the perfect thing to run here the day before Halloween, too. So happy Halloween, and another nod to Mssr. Templesmith for doing the image in the first place.

That is grand! This just adds to my Templesmith halloween. I'm going as Ray Delgado this year. I'm excited to see anyone dressed as a werewolf so I can attack them.

Wow, this takes me back! If it wasn't for you green lighting my Lifelike webcomic on that site, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be at IDW now, working on all the cool projects. Thanks Chris!
