For our Halloween Celebration I thought we'd take a look back at some of the many toys that have depicted the main "monster" character from one of the most popular Slasher franchises, Friday the 13th. Let's go back to Camp Crystal Lake and see the many plastic faces of Jason Voorhees!

As we continue our march to pure horror we must look at the new kid on the block. Now calling NECA the new kid is a bit much but they do represent the new face of horror collectibles. Back in the late 90's and early 2000's McFarlane was the king of the hill when it came to horror action figures and no one could touch them.
First off, Brother Voodoo isn’t on the list. I set the preview image so it wouldn’t reveal anyone on the list. A Halloween Celebration month wouldn’t be complete without a list of the Top 10 Comic Book Characters with their basis in the horror genre. Before going on with the list the stipulations are that
You guys might have noticed a little something spooky with this months banner theme and some of our stories have, well, been a little dark. We are going into the dark month and the hallowed day is indeed upon us as the Halloween celebration is drawing near! Okay so that might have been a tad
Being that it’s Batman month here at Needless Essentials, it’s only appropriate that as Comics editor, I have a list of my favorite 5 Batman stories.
