One-Shot #13: What Should I Be?

With Halloween approaching, it’s time to start dipping into the well of available costumes… but that brings up the eternal question, what should I be? Blake talks about some of the creepier “sexy” costumes, the dearth of options available for a geek in a non-geek crowd, and asks for your suggestions for this year’s cleverest Halloween get-ups. Contact us with comments, suggestions, or anything else at Showcase@CXPulp.com!

And what’s cool this week? In comics, it’s Tim Seeley and Mike Norton‘s Revival, while on DVD there’s the massive 7-hour documentary Crystal Lake Memories: The Complete History of Friday the 13th.
