As part of Horror Month this October, we’re interviewing the creators of comics’ best horror comics–and who better to kick things off than Dark Horse Editor-in-Chief Scott Allie? During his nearly 20 years at Dark Horse, he’s edited such notable horror comics as Hellboy, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Criminal Macabre, and he’s currently co-writing the monthly Abe Sapien series with Mike Mignola.
We chatted with him about transitioning from an editor to writer, and what’s coming up next for Dark Horse’s horror line!
Our thanks to Scott Allie for taking the time to answer all of our questions! Make sure to stop by our Horror Month Sale and save 25-50% on hundreds of horror comics, toys, and more.

Two years ago, we made headlines when we were able to locate and procure Tauntaun Steaks. Sure, we sold out in a matter of minutes, but we’re told those steaks were out of this world.
This year, we challenged the TFAW Buyers to search for similarly hard-to-find products. They’ve answered the call, putting in massive amounts of overtime these past few months–traveling to exotic locales to find products that will completely change your life. Click on the images or links below to read more about these amazing finds!

DC took the comic book industry by storm in September 2011 with The New 52, when they relaunched their entire line of books with #1 issues. In May, they’ll be launching six new series with The New 52 Second Wave!
If you were to buy all six #1 issues at retail price, you’d shell out about $20. If you order at TFAW by 3/31, those issues will cost you just $11.94 as part of our Second Wave offer. That’s 40% off all six #1 issues. There’s no better way to try out these new books!
Don’t forget about the ongoing adventures of your favorite DC superheroes. Many of DC’s New 52 series have new creative teams and are starting new story arcs. It’s a great time to start reading these blockbuster series.
Which series are you excited to begin? Are you picking up all the Second Wave #1 issues? Let us know below.

Hold onto your hats! We’re throwing a huge Back to School Sale that features 60% off our ever-popular Nick & Dents. We currently have more than 2,300 great-quality graphic novels, statues, toys, and more at 60% off. It’s a fantastic way to get a whole shelf-full of books or add to your figure collection without emptying your wallet.
If you haven’t ordered our Nick & Dents before, here’s a quick primer: our Nick & Dent graphic novels have been handled and might have minor damage to the outside cover–such as a slightly bent corner or scuffing–but they’re excellent reading copies. Our Nick & Dent toys and statues are fantastic finds for collectors who display their pieces out of the box: only the packaging is damaged, not the figures inside!
Here’s a recent testimonial from a happy Nick & Dent customer:
Your nick & dents continue to AMAZE me! What a great deal! I’ve wanted this book for a while now and when I saw you had a nick & dent I JUMPED on it! Not only is that a wonderful story by Quesada w/brilliant art by Rivera…but the condition of the book is almost PERFECT..would’ve paid 25 bucks for this anywhere else! Thanks so much TFAW! I love you!!

Did you hear the news? We’re throwing our biggest toy sale ever in August! From now until August 31, you’ll save 30-70% on hundreds of action figures, vinyl toys, plush collectibles, and more.
With so many products to choose from, I thought I’d pick a few of my favorites and share them with you all:
Pop Vinyl Figures: I have been coveting these adorable little vinyl figures since we had them at our booth at WonderCon this year. So cute! These pint-sized cuties are great for your office or home and are sure to attract plenty of attention, and now they’re just $7 each for a limited time.
We’ve got a bunch of the Pop Star Wars Bobble Heads in the sale, as well as a teeny-tiny Loki and, yes, both a ’50s and a ’70s version of Elvis. Again, adorable!
Star Trek Classic Communicator: If you’re like me, you’re wondering where the h#!! our Star Trek communicator cell phones are, amirite? (P.S. If you are like me, God help you.)
We can’t help you there (yet!), but we do have the Star Trek Classic Communicator at 40% off–just $20.99! You can just buy it and pretend it’s a cell phone (plus, cover up the fact that you like to talk to the voices in your head in public–WHAT?!?). In any case, it’s modeled after the original Star Trek TOS prop and comes complete with sound effects.
We’ve also got some amazing Star Trek action figures, bobble heads, and more in our sale.
Ghostbusters Figures: As a kid who grew up in the ’80s, Ghostbusters will always have a special place in my heart. I saw the first movie at a drive-in theater (remember those?) and screamed my lungs out during the old-lady-ghost-in-the-library scene. The followup cartoon, The Real Ghostbusters (wait, was there another Ghostbusters cartoon they needed to distinguish themselves from? Answer: yes!), was more than worthy of my Saturday-morning cartoon-watching time.
That’s why I’m glad to see these Ghostbusters Wave 1 Retro Action Figures in our sale for 40-70% off! At just $12-$15.59, you can afford the whole team.
Looking at this list, my first thought is . . . wow, I’m a nerd! But my second thought is, this is a pretty sweet sale. Make sure to shop between now and August 31 to add some great toys to your collection. Pro tip: we have extremely limited quantities of most of these toys, so the sooner, the better!
