Happy Fall, Crusaders! The first week of the fall season is upon us, all official and what not according to that wacky farmer’s almanac, and as we close out September I have pulled what I think is worth your time from my big inbox pile. Here is what I liked this week: As October, the consensus creepiest month of the year, draws near, comic publishers begin to roll out the scary. Over at Thrillbent, the…
