Most of us have studied a second language at some point in our lives. You may have taken two years in high school Spanish, been lucky enough to take a Gap Year and backpack across parts of the world, are just a huge Star Trek fan and learned Klingon in your free time, or you may never have studied but always wanted to.

We’re in full swing of the spooky season and well into October. I’ve watched a little better than one film a day, so far. How about you? Are you keeping up with one scary movie a day?

In my humble opinion, watching horror movies is better than going to the gym!

There's a huge amount of talented creators in the industry but I limited it to some of my personal favorite stories (I do have a soft spot for silver/bronze age comics) and I hope you'll find some new some titles to explore:
