When my boss first posted the title for this comic book, I knew it had to be a mistake. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles AND the Ghostbusters . . . IN THE SAME STORYLINE!!! No way. These are two of my favorite childhood cartoons. Could they really work together? That's when I realized the connection: New York City.

This whole month has been torture for me! Ever since I read the first issue of Little Nemo: Return to Slumberland back in August, I could hardly wait for October to read the next chapter in this fresh, new comic book series. I was immediately hooked by Eric Shanower's beautiful story and unique take on the brilliant works of Winsor McCay.

As Halloween is fast approaching, the Fanboy Comics staff and contributors decided that there was no better way to celebrate this horrifically haunting holiday than by sharing our favorite scary stories! Be they movies, TV shows, video games, novels, or anything other form of entertainment, members of the FBC crew will be sharing their "scariest" stories each day leading up to Halloween. We hope that you will enjoy this sneak peek into the terrors that frighten Fanboy Comics!

When this assignment was first sent to me, my mind immediately went into a racing frenzy! I mean, there are so many amazing villains out there in the comic book world, not to mention those in film, TV, books, video games, and whatever other media you can think of. But, who is ultimately the SCARIEST?

I’ve been reading comic books for a little over 3 months now.  I’m waiting for the day that I pick out a comic book to review that I simply don’t like, but who am I kidding?  I have nerd blood running through my veins, and Star Wars: Dark Times just made that blood boil!

I feel like this is art appreciation week (or month for that matter), because Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Secret History of the Foot Clan is the second comic book I've read this month that focuses on an artist's original artwork. In this case, we celebrate the outstanding work by TMNT regular Mateus Santolouco.

"A screaming comes across the sky. A shrieking. A beating of wings of desire. Of fluidity taking form of a form unborn of formlessness."

That's deep. That's dark.

That's also the best quote I can use to describe the newest Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle hardcover, Legends: Soul's Winter. When I first began reading this comic, I thought I was reading the wrong series. I mean, the same characters appeared, but they were . . . different.

Holy rhinoceros! I literally just finished reading Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Issue #40, and let me just say that it contains one of the best battles I've seen in a comic book since I've been writing these reviews!

Well, it's been a little over a month, and I have been waiting in anticipation to see what happens to some of our favorite comic book heroes: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the Ghostbusters!

It's that time of the month again, readers. No, I don't watch Star Wars every month. (Only every other . . . ) I'm talking about Nemo's adventures in Slumberland! Although I'm sure you've seen our friend, Nemo (or Jimmy, which he more prefers), in your own dreams, he's back in Little Nemo: Return to Slumberland #3.

I'm so excited to continue to review the ongoing storyline for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. If you remember in last month's issue, our heroes fought two of Shredder's strongest cronies--Rocksteady and BeBop--in one of the best comic book battles I've ever read. Then, in the epilogue, we catch Donatello controlling Dr. Harold's robot turtle, Metalhead, to have a conversation with Shredder . . . about Krang! It was truly an exciting issue!
