Thank you for the information! And I love the batty boo one too! It's so adorable!! :D

Especially since it glows in the dark.

We all need more GitD ponies. ;)

I was lucky enough to come into the possession of a lovely little 'Baby Batty Boo' myself a couple of days ago from off eBay, courtesy of the wondrous @Wysteria who's credited as the HQG1C creator a couple years earlier ITT! <3

Also, to make this a worthwhile bump-- I recently arranged a little display to showcase all of my favorite "Night Mares" for the autumn!

..and I'd also like to elect "Stranger Things Applejack" as another valid addition to the "Halloween Pony" pantheon, while I'm at it! :winkpony:

I saw Stardust and Briefer's Frankenstein before I saw the ponies! :D You got great taste in reading material!

O m g... That is so sweet of you to say-- thank you!! :ponylove:

Those just so happened to be my favorite volumes in that shelf, too~ (although, as it just so happens the title for 'Black Cat Mysteries' incidentally aligned with Pumpkin Tart pretty nicely, which felt pretty appropriate given her costume!)

There are a couple other G3 Halloween ponies, but they're pretty lame. There's Fun Fairy, who has a pair of clip on wings and . . . uh, yeah, that's it. And Lovely Ladybug, who has ladybug wings. Their color schemes are not Halloween-y at all. There's also a Clone pose Scootloo with a flower mask and a Starsong with a witch hat.

There's also this Ponyville set:



(In case you can't see it, Scootaloo has a pirate hat.)

You're most welcome! Typically when I meet Pony/comic fans they're almost strictly newer superhero comic fans, so what a thrill to see Golden Age goodness lovingly displayed upon your shelf! I just love old pre code horror, especially EC. They pushed every boundary they could and I adore their moxy. Horror comics are just a pure delight to me. I was reading Vampirella and DC's House of Mysteries by the stack as a kid (as well as Marvel's post apocalyptic series Deathlok, who can resist an undead cyborg super soldier?) and they probably helped warp my mind in the most magnificent ways! And the delightful Fletcher Hanks always ties with Basil Wolverton as masters of the surreal and bizarre, something I always tried to include in my work.

I won't even go into how much I love Tomb of Dracula, mainly because of Ernie Colón. He was a good friend of my artistic mentor, so I got to meet him on several occasions and his kindness and talent blew me away. He was such a fabulous man, and sadly he just passed away last month. I was so sad when I got the news. We're losing so many of the true comic masters, I fear the medium will never return to its former glory.

I know I'm in the minority, but I always liked the Ponyville figs. You can cram one in your pocket and have a tag-a-long pony pal w'ere you wander!

...You may not be aware? But you sound, unbelievably awesome beyond words right now. I am an absolute FIEND for the Golden Age of comics! Even where superheroes are concerned, take Jack Cole's "Plastic Man" or the"Captain Marvel" mags from back in Fawcett's heyday? Books like those are honestly some of my all-time favorites in the genre. Miles ahead of anything from the Silver Age, certainly-- or many of their subsequent 'deconstructions' in more recent decades, at least so far as my personal tastes are concerned.

And, heh! Funny you should mention-- since I'm sure you've no doubt noticed? But I'm a MAJOR 'EC' junkie myself-- hence the punny reference to their troublesome trio of Horror Hosts, "The GhouLunatics" in my very own username here! :winkpony:

Love the display! and glad you like batty boo! - I just wanted to point out though - Wysteria is not the creator of hqg1c, or Batty Boo, so I don't know where this information was originally passed on from? :X
