The Comics Alliance Halloween Costume Countdown: Harley Quinn

Harley Quinn Costumes

October is finally upon is, and here at ComicsAlliance, and one of the best parts of the month is gearing up for Halloween with costumes! It’s the one time of year when even people like me who could never cut it in our Best Cosplay Ever feature can drop by the local department store and walk out with the ability to dress up as our favorite characters.

But is that really a good thing? I have my doubts, which is why I’m spending every day taking on the store-bought costumes inspired by our favorite things. Today, we're following up on yesterday's look at the joker with a selection of Harley Quinn costumes, which unfortunately have yet to catch up with that whole "naked in a bathtub" thing.

Ask Chris #168: (Mad) Science vs. (Spoooooky) Magic

Ask Chris Halloween Art by Erica Henderson

Q: Would you rather your vampires and other monsters explained through magic, religious, or scientific contexts? --@CineastBenRowe

A: You know, Benny, I was all set to dive into another question I had this week about what was the best Ghost-Type Pokémon, but the more I looked at the questions I was getting, the more this one stuck in my head. I guess you could say it... haunted me. Haunted me like a Gengar, which, while actually a dual-type Ghost/Poison Pokémon, definitely qualifies and is really pretty awesome and creepy when you start reading all the stuff about how it was originally intended to be a ghostly doppelganger of Clefairy back before kids decided that they liked Pikachu about a thousand percent more than any other Pokémon. I've had a keychain of one since the tenth grade.

Oh, right, your thing. It won't surprise you that I have a pretty definitive answer, but it might surprise you to find out what that answer is.

Bizarro Back Issues: Spider-Mans, Man-Wolves And Frankensteins, Oh My! (1975)

MTU01

One of the interesting things about Marvel Comics is how seamlessly they integrated horror characters into their mainstream universe. A lot of that, of course, is just convenience. Marvel is, after all, a superhero publisher, so even when they do a comic about Dracula or, say, an actual demon from Hell who runs around with his head on fire punishing sinners with his supernatural abilities, they still just treat them like superheroes that are just part of this bigger, weirder world.

As a result, while they might all get lumped in together, they never really stay cooped up in some spooky corner, and if you're the type to dive into the quarter bin to look for a few cheap scares, that makes it pretty easy to find a spoooooky Halloween back issue. Sometimes Dracula shows up in X-Men and hits on Storm for two issues. Sometimes Blade joins a team of British heroes and helps fight aliens. And sometimes... sometimes Spider-Man gets kidnapped and strapped to a table with Frankenstein so that some weirdo you've never heard of can make "MONSTER SUPREME."
