Monster Look-N-Find is written by Jess Smart Smiley an illustrator, living and working in Utah. His first graphic novel, Upside Down: A Vampire Tale, was recently released from Top Shelf Productions, and he’s currently working on a monster Look-N-Find book (think Where’s Waldo? but with monsters) as a follow-up to his Monster Coloring Book. Did we mention that he like monsters?
Upside Down: A Vampire Tale
Harold is a friendly young vampire – but he loves candy so much, the dentist might have to pull his teeth! Now, what if he and the dentist, plus a couple friendly bats, all get caught up in the evil plots of the local witch? It’s a wild magical romp for all ages, just in time for Halloween!

At Geek & Sundry (Felicia Day’s premium YouTube channel) they love Halloween too! In fact, one of their shows: Written By A Kid, just released their Halloween episode: ZOMBIE SPIDER.
Written By A Kid is a web series where kids tell the stories and indie directors make them come to life without changing the original story. As a result the stories are crazy, unpredictable and off the wall. Zombie Spider is no different! There’s gore, violence, God dropping a bazooka, and (of course) a giant spider that can’t be killed!

With Halloween only a week away, more and more people are getting into the scaring mood and in this week on SoulPancake’s “Subcultures” we follow Brandon Spletter and Jeff Schiefelbein as they build their own haunted houses. We follow their process of trying to make their haunted houses as scary as they can and meet the people who help them along the way. Even though they are working with a very small budget, we see how passionate they are in trying to scare people and make sure they have the best Halloween experience. This is a great way to show all the time and energy that is put into a haunted house and the people who’s job is to make sure people get scared.
