It’s the Wednesday before Halloween, so it’s time once again for the Two Guys with PhDs to look at this season’s spooky, horror-filled offerings. This year, Andy and Derek discuss 10 individual titles, some of which were specifically published for Halloween 2016 and others with particular themes and release dates that nicely coincide with the holiday. They begin with four all-age anthology titles and then move on to works that, while not specifically intended as Halloween specials, capture the spirit of the season in one form or another. In total, they discuss:

- The Simpsons’ Treehouse of Horror #22, by Matt Groenig and others (Bongo Comics)
- Spongebob Comics #61, edited by Chris Duffy (United Plankton Pictures)
- Adventure Time Spooktacular 2016, by Pendleton Ward and others (KaBoom!)
- Disney’s Giant Halloween Hex, by various (IDW Publishing)
