So what was everyone dressing as on Halloween? Based on our trip to the Village Halloween Parade, there were a lot of pirates and superheroes — many Kick-Ass and Hit-Girl costumes, so good on that, John Romita, Jr.. The movie version of Silk Spectre keeps the Watchmen alive. A lot of Superman and Wonder Womans. We did not personally witness any Scott Pilgrim costumes that were not worn by comics folks, but Edgar Wright has a Posterous gallery, above.

A few more taken from Twitter:

Jann Jones as Amethyst.

Rob Liefeld, wife Joy and family as…Han Solo, Leia and family.

Normally dressed Vertigo’s Pornsak Pichetshote and Mark Doyle flank an intern as Gus from Sweet Tooth — via Jeff Lemire.

Archaia’s Mel Caylo as the best Oddjob ever.

Artist Cameron Stewart continues his Halloween tradition of dressing as a serial killer by going as Frank Booth from Blue Velvet.

Finally, in the celebrity corner, Heidi Klum and Seal went as…freaks.


  1. Yup… I called the Hit Girl costume meme back in April. Strong teenage girl who …ahem… kicks ass. A cool costume which covers the entire body (important in NYC).

    That said, I also saw a few Supergirl and Wonder Woman costumes on kids trick-or-treating Sunday afternoon.
