:: If you missed Elijah's ghoulish guest voice performance in Cartoon Network's, Star Wars Resistance, there's a short clip of the episode. From the way it played out, Jace could be back for revenge.
:: Are you dressing up in your best Over the Garden Wall garb for Halloween? Are you on Twitter? Then head over to their costume contest now and send in your photo for a chance to win a secret prize.
:: Finally, to get in mood, I'm dusting off the cobwebs from an old video I made titled, Faces of Halloween.
