Coming at the end of October will be Halloween ComicFest, the fall’s version of Free Comic Book Day. It will be held on the last Saturday of the month, the 29th. There will be free comics and other treats galore at participating locations!
Magic: The Gathering fans, I hope you were in line to pick up the Battle for Zendikar expansion that arrived on Friday. If you missed it, today would be a good day to check out the new set, and be on the lookout for the Pro Tour Battle for Zendikar coming up on October 16th.
Women and the supernatural. I often find that combination to be a great read. In BOOM! Studios’ tenth anniversary, they’re giving a lot of quality comics a chance. I always appreciate that. I’m glad that includes Hexed coming back, so it’s been a great Wednesday for me all around!
Those who have been waiting to play Magic 2015 on their iPad don’t have to wait any longer as Wizards of the Coast has released the game.
Howling Mine (and other similar cards) have been a part of Magic: The Gathering since the game’s inception.

Last week, Wizards of the Coast announced the Magic: the Gathering You Make the Card 4 and their plans to encourage communication on the project.
