Countdown: 29 days to Halloween

Every day this month, I'll be posting a Halloween comic book cover! Enjoy!

Bugs Bunny's Halloween Parade #2
Bugs Bunny's Halloween Parade #2

I think Bugs looks a little goofy here. Petunia too...  And what exactly is Elmer's costume?

All covers from the Grand Comics Database.

Looney Halloween
That is a great one from the mid-50s for Looney Tunes tied into Halloween:

I always liked the issue from a year earlier a tad more though:

It seemed much more appropriate to actually carve the jack'o'lantern out of a carrot. Seemed much more "looney" to me.

Whichever may be your preference, you can't go wrong.


Cheers!

That carrot cover is a classic. In fact, I featured it last year: http://shadzane.livejournal.com/326778.html

Re: Looney Halloween
Most cool.

The only Looney Tune Halloween cover I found better was the Trick 'n' Treat #3 cover, as the obviously concerned witch with Bugs for some reason makes me think of Donald Rumsfeld (his name even sounds like a Looney Tunes character).

I am intentionally not putting the link to this cover in, Shad, in case you intend to use it on another day this month; I know you know how to this particular cover yourself. Don't wanna spoil all the fun for your readers.


Cheers!

Re: Looney Halloween
That is a very nice cover, but I am not planning on using it this year. It doesn't have any specifically Halloween content -- witches, while seen a lot around Halloween, don't "belong to Halloween" the same way jack-o-lanterns or trick-n-treaters do.

However, I might change my mind in future years, especially since the cover says "Halloween"...
