31 Days of Halloween - Beth V's Saturday Walker Stalker Con Recap

After a fairly inauspicious start to the con on Friday I was hoping for a little more on Saturday. More attendees, more celebrities, and just generally more to do. I got most of what I wanted and in some cases a little more than I wanted.

31 Days of Halloween - Comic Book Wednesday - Horror Visits Riverdale (A Look At Afterlife With Archie) By R.T. Ewell



When I was growing up, most of my friends liked the superheroes like Spiderman, Superman, and Batman. I like those characters as well but more when I was a teenager. When I was young, let's say, under ten it wasn't a superhero that I looked up to or enjoyed to read. It was this normal, everyday guy named Archie Andrews.

Beth V's Walker Stalker Con Friday Recap

Sober and alone is not how I had planned on spending any con, but since Phantom had Ebola someone had to step up and cover this thing. And I certainly tried my best to get the scoop for you guys. I have to admit right now though that I am a bad reporter, and clearly didn't understand what this con was all about. I really did think it was just a general zombie convention. I didn't realize that it was pretty much exclusively about The Walking Dead. My bad. I think not knowing that gave me different expectations than I otherwise would have had. It certainly explained why the celebrity panels were more like a love-in and less like a panel. There were more hugs than insights, but I did find a few really good panels. The best two that I went to had no real stars at all, but they gave me a lot more to think about then how dreamy Norman Reedus may or may not be.

31 Days of Halloween – Odds N’ RENDS: Walker Stalker, Carrie, and Cabin Fever

Today’s post was supposed to be a recap of my visit to Walker Stalker Con. For multiple reasons that particular subject is not enough to fill up a post or keep your attention, so instead I’m going to throw a few different topics together and hope that I come up with enough to satisfy my (and your) demands for a full daily post.
Chances are we’ll both end up wishing I’d just posted that review of Goat-Man.

31 Days of Halloween - My Horror Origin Story

I wish the title of this article was “My Superhero Origin Story” because that would be awesome, especially if it was about my ability to teleport. Instead, this article will be about my origin story with horror. Mine is probably a bit different than most. A lot of people I know my age started when they were young therefore having an everlasting affection toward 80's horror movies. Most remember when they were young either their parents introducing them to horror or watching them with childhood friends.
