Ah, October at last.
October is my favorite month, for two reasons. One: generally speaking, it's cool and dry here in Maine during this time of year, and that's the way I like it.
My wife and I got married on Halloween, which should adequately demonstrate our shared affection for that amusingly macabre holiday. Choosing to tie the knot on that memorable date has also ensured that I will never forget our matrimonial anniversary and suffer the horrible consequences such a lapse would justifiably engender.
Also, Halloween gives me a perfect excuse to watch horror films and monster movies all month long... and I've got a lot of those.
By the way – that beautiful Dan Brereton painting accompanying this post was his cover for the second issue of the short-lived comic book I co-published with my pal Jim, Shadow House.
The gal's name? Autumn.
