You’ve wandered into the topsy-turvy world of Tulgey Wood, the blog of writer and historian Jim Fanning. Tulgey Wood celebrates artistry and creativity (and sometimes just plain madness): movies, animation, TV, books, comics—and of course Disney, lots and lots of true-blue, through-and-through Disney, including D23 and Disney twenty-three Magazine, and Sketches Magazine and the Walt Disney Collectors Society. Tulgey Wood is so fun, fascinating and full of frolicsome photos and facts, it’s scary. So wander through the wonder of it all, and enjoy.

Casper's Back, Materializing for Halloween

Casper has made a return to comic-book stores and stands, thanks to American Mythology Publications, a publisher that's bringing back a number of licensed favorites to the funny books.  This Halloween-worthy title has three variant covers. Of course, in honor of Halloween, I have the so-called Spooky cover, drawn by Mike Wolfer and Ceci de la Cruz, shown below. (Hot Stuff makes a guest appearance, but Spooky [the tuff little ghost] is nowhere in sight.) As a bonus, my dear friend Barbara Layman of Universal/DreamWorks Publishing, as well as Corinne Combs and Steve Behling, is acknowledged on the credits page, as is Harvey Comics expert Mark Arnold,  This Issue #1 (let's hope there are many issues to come!) includes both new and classic material. Also, Casper is part of Halloween ComicFest 2017. And (super)naturally the Friendly Ghost is a friendly part of the Countdown to Halloween 2017 here at Tulgey Wood.

I did not know this! I used to love Casper, Wendy, Hot Stuff and Richie Rich comics as a kid. Maybe I should pick this up and read it to my granddaughters. Gotta get them on the comic book habit! ;)
