Let's wrap up on the spookiest day of the year by posting the most terrifying adventure ever of Spike Wilson and Sugar Plumm! Have a sugary Halloween and a spiky All Hallow's Eve, everyone!

Hi hi hi! Your friendly neighborhood Little Stuffed Mike-Sterling's-End-of-Civilization fanboy here to give you a look-see at Previews magazine (the only magazine that actually says "Buy this stuff, sucker!") for all the crap things you can get tomorrow, October 29, 2014, at your local comicky-book store! Please support them by using their free wi-fi to download comics purchasing these fine items from your LCS, except you probably shoulda put them on your pull list a couple months ago. Um. Sorry.
HARLEY QUINN ANNUAL #1
It's the special "scratch and sniff issue!" (Which is a good enough reason for you to put this comic book in a sealed plastic bag.) Who doesn't enjoy the great scent of Harley Quinn? Actually, this is a pretty cool idea and I think DC oughta do lots more scratch and sniff comic books...
Hey, let's find out what's playing this week on BBC Radio! (I listen to the Beeb a lot, and so should you!) Since they've recently extended the time period you can listen to most of their radio shows via the patented and yet oddly non-Apple iPlayer from a week to a month, there's no better time than right now (or anytime during the next month) to listen to BBC Radio programmes! (Extra M and E added for special British effect.)
Here's a handful of the shows I'm enjoying that I think the readers of this blog might like as well.
Show of the Week: Krazy Kat A radio documentary on George Herriman's groundbreaking comic strip, hosted by noted illustrator Quentin Blake (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and other Roald Dahl books).
I'm Sorry, I'll Read That Again!: Another of my all-time most-loved British radio programmes, a fast-moving sketch show starring John Cleese, Tim Brooke-Taylor, Graeme Garden, Bill Oddie (of The Goodies) and the proverbial "and the rest" (okay, Jo Kendall and David Hatch). Pretty much every episode has some fantastic stuff in it.
Jeeves Live: I'm a nut for P.G. Wodehouse, and here's The Man Who Reads Everything (Martin Jarvis) doing his one-man show of Wodehouse classics before a live audience.
Jeremy Hardy Speaks to the Nation: There's still time to catch most of the brand-new series of left-wing comedian and commenter Jeremy Hardy (frequent panelist on The News Quiz) walking you through his acerbic guide to life. This is Series Ten, which means there's nine whole more series out there to look for after you enjoy these.
The News at Bedtime: For all you comics fans, here's a sum-up of the concept behind this comedy show: imagine if Bill Willingham's Fables series had a nightly newscast of the events in their mystic land. Starring Jack Dee (the current host of the long-running I'm Sorry, I Haven't a Clue panel game) and a guy you may have heard of named Peter Capaldi. There's still time to catch the last few episodes of the series.
So there y'all go: lots of cool stuff to listen to on BBC Radio recommended to you by a Little Stuffed Bull, and you don't even have to pay the licence fee! Ha!
