Free Comic Book Day has been a special occasion for comic book fans since 2002. A more recent comic book event, very similar to Free Comic Book Day, is Halloween ComicFest. We spoke with Daniel Newkirk, owner of Quincy's Underdark Comics and Games, to get the rundown on what exactly Halloween ComicFest is all about.
A lot of changes are coming to the Quincy Mall. First, we found out that J.C. Penney was closing, and then DEB. Then RadioShack left, not only in Quincy, but everywhere. Now Quincy Mall is starting to fill up with seasonal businesses for the holidays. I was reminiscing this morning about some of the stores that used to be in the Quincy Mall, but are no longer there. Remember these?
Hannibal's historic entertainment venues - a few of which are still operational - have hosted every type of celebrity there is. Some of the most famous stars of stage, screen, and vaudeville have performed in America's Hometown.
If you've been looking for a haunted house to visit in Quincy, there's one coming up on Friday and Saturday, courtesy of Quincy University's CEO Club. The Asylum Haunted House will be open from 8 p.m. to midnight on October 30 and October 31.
YouTube is full of prank videos. Some are very funny, some are very lame. As a fan of the Friday the 13th movies, I thought this one was well done, and brilliant in its simplicity. Basically, someone puts on a hockey mask, grabs a machete, then scares unsuspecting campers to death. Not literally. But close.
Have you ever watched a show like 'The Walking Dead' and thought, "I wonder what it would be like if that happened here?" Hannibal author John L. Davis IV is hard at work on 'American Revenant,' a series of books that brings the zombie apocalypse to America's Hometown.
We spent a good deal of time reporting on American Revenant, a zombie movie that was shot in Hannibal over the summer. A release date has not yet been announced for American Revenant, but we're looking forward to seeing the finished product. Over the last few years, several independent filmmakers have chosen to shoot their projects in our area. Here are some independent horror films with local ties.
The Hannibal Jaycees Haunted House is one of the area's most popular Halloween attractions. It's a lot of fun to visit, as long as you can handle the scares! Of course, that leaves out younger kids, which is why the haunted house is going to have a special "lights on" hour on Halloween.
Did you know that the Quaker Oats Man actually has a name, or that Harry Caray was a St. Louis Cardinals announcer before he was with the Cubs? Outside of a trivia competition, these little-known facts probably won't benefit you very much, but they're a lot of fun to discover!
