‘Strange Kid Comics Magazine’ Hits Kickstarter For A 24-Page Satanic Teddy Ruxpin Story

Strange Kid Comics on Kickstarter

I don't want to get all "'80s/'90s Kid" on everybody, because God help me if I ever start speaking in BuzzFeed/Facebook status update phrases, but if you're of a certain age there's a pretty good chance that you have a lot of nostalgic affection for stuff like Teddy Ruxpin, Stretch Armstrong and those Troll dolls with the hair. If you do, you have of course wondered what would've happened if those toys were possessed by demonic spirits unleashed by the power of Heavy Metal.

Now, at last, you can find out. For their fourth printed issue, the Strange Kids Club website is putting out a Kickstarter-funded magazine featuring not only the art of MadBalls designer James Groman, but also a 24-page comic written by Benito Cereno.

Ask Chris #167: Monsters Unleashed (Once They Are Properly Categorized)

AskChrisoween

Q: What makes a monster a Halloween monster? Why is Dracula okay but Godzilla is not? -- @chudleycannons

A: If you're following me on Twitter, then you may already know that earlier this week, I got into a heated argument with comic book writer and holiday enthusiast Benito Cereno over what does and does not constitute a "Halloween Monster." The whole thing sprang out of a Halloween-themed musical countdown that Benito's doling out over at his Tumblr -- stick around to find out how the Garfield Halloween special got him in trouble as a youngster -- that included Blue Oyster Cult's "Godzilla."

My argument -- which I posed to my ex-friend in a very civil and conversational manner that definitely did not start with "hey stupid" -- was that this song wasn't a good fit because Godzilla, while he is definitely a monster, doesn't fit thematically with Halloween. Benito's argument was that it was a fun song. But obviously, as we all know, you can't have fun without rules.
