In this spooktacular Halloween issue, it’s a dark and twisted version of Riverdale as the the Archie Comics characters come to Fox television. Archie and Veronica blushed. ALSO Hydra releases the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer into the wild, and Marvel responds the only way they can: by also releasing the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer into the wild. THEN it’s Arkham Manor, Deathstroke, Memetic, about 700 hours of television and more in What We’ve Been Reading and Watching.
PLUS our Kick-Ass Pick of the Week: Nancy In Hell by El Torres and Juan Jose Ryp. This is Behind the Panels.
Your Hosts: Richard Gray and David McVay. (Dave’s not here, man).
