ELECTRIC ZOMBIE "HALLOWEEN" LINE

I can't think about Halloween anymore without getting excited about the new stuff Electric Zombie releases in conjunction with the holiday. The overloaded "Trick Or Treat" bags may be long gone, but there are still a load of goodies in store to treat yourself to. This seasonal drop includes five reprint t shirts, a new pocket tee, two prints, and the aforementioned candy and toy filled bag.

The "Haunt" reprint utilizes glow-in-the-dark ink to expose the ghostly inhabitants of this fantastic illustration. I generally avoid white shirts (I always end up somehow making a mess of them), but I couldn't pass on this one.

I've been waiting for this little guy to be showcased on his own shirt since he first appeared with other Ghostbusters' villains in this year's earlier "Spooker" design. The "Plasm" tee's pocket print and bright color is just as bold the rest of the drop's oversized prints.

"Decay" originally debuted as a Grave Takers' design, but has been resurrected to join this Halloween release, given new life on a vivid tri-blend red t shirt blank.

I was entranced by "Maximum Overdrive," Stephen King's first (and only) foray in directing, when I was a preteen. After catching it on cable the other night, I'm happy to report its still as much fun to watch now. My favorite parts of that movie are still the soda machine scene and the wicked "Green Goblin" truck. The "Joyride" print is a perfect tribute to this underrated classic.

Each shirt in the new collection is still available in all sizes, but they're going fast. Don't wait too long to visit the Electric Zombie shop and pick something up.

CRITICAL HIT: THE ART OF SKINNER "FORBIDDEN ACTIVITIES FOR NEGLECTED CHILDREN" BOOK

http://shopcriticalhit.com/collections/books/products/forbidden-activities-for-neglected-children
Of course as a kid I wanted as much candy as I could get on Halloween. But I was also a fan of the little tchotchkes - the plastic vampire fangs, spider rings, and pumpkin shaped erasers. I distinctly remember someone in my neighborhood giving out these little 8 page activity books that I coveted for well into the winter months. They contained miniature versions of the seasonal activity sheets teachers would hand out during the month of October. For just $10, Skinner offers up his own version entitled "Forbidden Activities For Neglected Children," full of demented coloring and activity pages that will surely make you feel like a kid again. It even includes a page of stickers! Find it now in the Critical Hit: The Art of Skinner shop.

SCUMBAGS & SUPERSTARS "MONSTER BATTLE"

http://shop.scumbagsandsuperstars.com/product/monster-battle-allover-green
My only apparel purchase from New York Comic Con, it wasn't until I was composing this post that I realized I wrote about the original colorway of Scumbags & Superstars' "Monster Battle" a year ago to the day. Now that I have the actual shirt in my hands, I can tell you the water based print is super soft, the images are insane, and the lime green color seems only fitting. Purchase one for yourself from the Scumbags & Superstars online shop, where a not as bright gray variant is also available.

Wearing whatever crazy outfit you want, partying all night, obsessing about the macabre (without being branded a weirdo), and getting free candy? That doesn't just sound like Halloween to me, that's a bona fide Shangri-La. I'd definitely "sign up for Halloween every day, forever" like PORK magazine suggests; I'd even show up to monthly meetings. Show your loyalty by picking up their "Trick Or Treat" patch, available now in the PORK SHOP.
