Trick or treat!

I can’t really give you a reason I dig the Mummy — or any mummies, really — more than his monstrous brethren like Frankenstein’s monster or Dracula. I never really thought about it until I started casting about for a theme for this year’s 13 COVERS Halloween celebration.

Maybe it’s because the Mummy was the one monster Mego I vaguely recall wanting as a kid…

Or maybe it’s this:

Hell, I don’t know. I just know that mummies are cool, so they get the nod.

So happy Halloween, folks! Just make sure you inspect those apples…
