Halloween Countdown, Day 19

Recently my friend, comic book writer Dwight L. MacPherson, and his artist colleague Igor Noronha, won the comics competition at Zuda Comics for their steampunk comic Sidewise, which meant that Sidewise would become an ongoing series.

And here's the trailer:

Read Sidewise here.

Spooky Text of the Day: Today's story is a chilling one, "Ombra" by Mrs. Richard S. Greenough (1827-1885).

I closed my eyes and lay in no enviable frame of mind. All the strange and sinister tales that I had heard in my childhood returned upon my mind, blending with the wailing of the wind, and slow, continuous falling of the rain without, - for, although the fury of the storm had passed, the elements had not yet sunk to rest, - and with the light step of the girl within as she moved backwards and forwards.
