Countdown to Halloween: 17 Days to Go
on this Fantastic Friday!

It's time for the October visit from American's First Family of Comics--the Fantastic Four!

The Fantastic Four deal mostly with aliens and scientific threats--the closest they come to Halloweenish adventures are dealing with their archnemisis Dr. Doom when he decides to augment his hi-tech weapons with dark magical secrets that he inherited from his mother--but they frequently travel to the alternate universe known as the Negative Zone to defend Earth from its monstrous denizens. Continuing the countdown to Halloween, John Byrne delivers two scenes from battles in that dark realm!

Countdown to Halloween: 22 Days to Go!

Today, I'm showing off the first sketch of the cover illo for "Secrets of the Witchkind," a d20 System product I designed for NUELOW Games that's releasing this week. You can see the final at the NUELOW Games blog by clicking here.

"Secrets of the Witchkind" was partially inspired by the classic television show "Bewitched." It chronicles the adventures of a witch who falls in love with a mortal, marries him, and tries to give up her magic. The first season is especially interesting, as many of the episodes almost seem like allegories for anti-racism and pro-equal rights arguments, and an interesting look into how gender roles have changed for married couples since the 1960s Does the sort of "normal housewife" that Samantha tries so hard to be even exist anymore?
