Seriously though, I've stated how my brain works with the rock and roll and the monsters and the evil space robots fighting against the brave American soldiers with their Tesla cannons, so it should come as no surprise when I tell you that I want to talk about another rockin monster pop culture comic.

Cover to cover entertainment in every issue of Rockin' Bones. As with Creepsville, I can't recommend Rockin' Bones enough. Every issue was obviously a labor of love for Mr. Merinuk (the same can be said of Creepsville) and such talent deserved a longer run, but alas it was not to be. If you can, go out and pick up the run (it's only 4 issues), read them and see the world in a fundamentally cooler way, kiddies.
Keep your pumpkins rockin'.
