Snowtober didn’t drive them away, and now that the weather has warmed up again, Occupy Wall Street is going strrong — and now with added superheroes. but not just any superheroes, but the characters from THE ADVENTURES OF UNEMPLOYED MAN, a GN anthology that came out last year.

But here we see Corey Feldman from THE LOST BOYS, which as we revealed on Twitter today, we only saw for the very first time this weekend. Yes we had never seen “Death by stereo!” and the Two Croey’s greatest moments, as well as one of the most titanic assemblage of cute gothy boys in one film EVER. WHY DID WE WAIT SO LONG??!!?!??!?
The artist has collected all his Halloween art in one big post. Enjoy!
The ULYSSES SEEN artist passes along a poster he made for a Philadelphia theater company. “Their programming this year includes an old Radio show (with local actors and a foley sound-effects artist) as well as a dramatic-yet-hillarious reading from TOMB OF DRACULA #10. Great fun for all ages and, as you can see, something I really enjoy taking part in,” Berry writes.
