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!
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?

For roughly three years, I posted weekly pictures and mini-profiles of horror movie actresses under the heading Saturday Scream Queens. This is the first of a couple similar posts that will be appearing here as part of the Countdown to Halloween.
Today's subject is Native American actress, dancer, model, and mother of two daughters, Cheyenne King. She's been in a handful of indie horror films, and she's someone I would like to see more of the same from. (You can read reviews of two of her films, as well as see a music video she starred in, at Terror Titans.)
