New In Comics: Zombie Tramp Halloween Special

New this week from Action Lab Comics is the Zombie Tramp Halloween Special.

"Get set for Hot Habanero Action and Sexy Salsa Sizzle as our favorite Undead Vixen goes south of the border just in time for a Día de Muertos themed Halloween special!! 

When a troubled young girl visits her sister's grave on All Souls Day, could she rise from the ground and come to her sister's aid? That we don't know. But what we do know is that someone does hear her. Someone that does rise from graves. 

That someone is Janey Belle, the Zombie Tramp."

Zombie Tramp Halloween Special was written by Dan Mendoza, and illustrated by Marcelo Trom, with a cover and Risque variant by Trom, and variant covers by Bill McKay and Dan Mendoza.

Stop Zombie Mouth!

The contents of trick 'r treat bags are going to look a little different this Halloween if PopCap, the American Dental Association and your local dentist get their way. They are all teaming up this October to Stop Zombie Mouth by offering up free Plants vs. Zombies game downloads for Halloween as a sugar-free alternative to candy.

"This Halloween, the Putrid Posse is coming after the mouths of kids everywhere. We need your help to stop them — and Stop Zombie Mouth! Team up with PopCap — makers of Plants vs. Zombies — and the American Dental Association to help teach kids of all ages about good oral hygiene. You can help by giving FUN instead of candy on Halloween — for free!"

Limited edition Plants vs. Zombies collectible trading cards with free download codes are available at your local dentist's office (if they are participating in this program) and free game coupons are available online at the Stop Zombie Mouth website so you can give them out to trick 'r treaters too.

Zombies and Teddy Bears

Spirit Halloween brings on The Walking Dead Teddy Bear Girl as a posable, animated prop for Halloween.

"She's life-size. She's got the bunny slippers, the pink pajamas, robe and stuffed pink teddy bear. The only problem is she's dead, as in The Walking Dead, and headed your way. The officially licensed Walking Dead Teddy Bear Girl animated prop is just the thing for Halloween so long as you stay out of her way."

Available for pre-order now: Walking Dead Teddy Bear Girl Animated Prop

They've also got another video, a little lacking in production value (to say the least) featuring their neat Crawling Zombie:
