Halloween is a spooky night, for ghouls and ghosts to come out and play. Denizens dressed to fright, who hardly see the light of day. They wander in search of tricks and treats, but mostly hording countless sweets. Those fools, Mike and Ryan, are no exception. One even has the right complexion.

I originally was going for a more direct Wizard of Oz reference in the title of today’s strip, but then I got “The Lollipop Guild” song stuck in my head, and I wouldn’t wish that upon my worst enemy. If you have it stuck in your head now, I apologize, and recommend asking your coworker for a swift death.

This is the first of our Halloween story, which will find its end on the night of fright itself. You best hope that you do not find yours! BOO.

Did I scare you?
