Cool Projects #37

We've been so busy with the launch of the Steve & Crypto Show, and then Halloween, that we haven't dropped a Cool Projects post in a while, so let's share a few new or soon to be released comics in Cool Projects #37! Some are already available and some soon to be released...All worth checking out! 

I sure have some catching up to do on my comic reading! 

Once & Future (Boom Studios), written by Kieran Gillen, is a great series we featured a while back here about generations of defenders against apocalyptic returns of monsters from the middle ages. 

Epic battle between former allies written by one of our favorite writers, Steve Nile? Yes please! Check out Kick Ass vs. Hit Girl from Image Comics

New series from IDW and Marvel featuring anthology series or thrillers, featuring some favorite Marvel characters. Definitely intriguing enough to check out.

The title of this book from Dark Horse speaks for itself.

Cullen Bunn's take on the Shadowman saga, coming early next year. Bunn is brilliant. Valiant has really been killing it the last few years with their comics!

Another exciting series from Boom! Studios! The Dune: House Atreides comic series has already gone into reprints due to popularity. This series should hold ya over until the new movie comes out...once the world is safe again.

Have you guys ready any of these comics, or do you plan to? What have you been reading?

Halloween Huntin'


Happy Spooky Season!!!



Halloween season is here! Being my favorite time of year, I always look forward to checking out all the decor the stores have to offer! I took a bunch of picture on our adventure and thought I'd share with you guys. 


Before I post the photo gallery, I want to take a moment to thank you all for being patient here at the site while we launch the Steve & Crypto Show. We're very excited about the podcast, and appreciate your support so far. Keep listening and sharing and helping us get the word out for the Steve & Crypto Show. If you haven't listened yet, you can check us out on your favorite podcast providers including Apple, Stitcher, Google, Spotify and more. We are also available here on the thestevestrout.com and at https://anchor.fm/steveandcryptoshow  Be sure to use "#SteveandCryptoShow" when you're spreading the word about the show!

Now...Without further adieu, check out some of the fun stuff we saw in our Halloween hunt:















































Here's a bit of our haul and some fun we had with it.












I probably should have kept better track of where the pictures were taken, in case you see anything you dig, but can tell you some of the places we shopped were Home Goods, Walgreens, Walmart, Target, Big Lots, Spirit Halloween and the Dollar Tree. To my surprise some of the best stuff came from the Dollar Tree and Big Lots. We were very underwhelmed by Target and Spirit, but I felt they were all picked through or not fully stocked yet. 

Where are some of the best spots you've found for your Halloween decorations and goodies? Tag me in your posts! I love seeing your Halloween setups! I'll share some pics of our decorated place asap!
