Elvira has a new comic out too! From DreadCentral-
Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, is excited to announce a new series of Elvira comic books set to debut in 2013. Working with author R.H. Stavis (Daniel’s Veil, Activision’s Transformers: War for Cybertron) and artist Jeff Zarnow (Godzilla, 68, Battle Beasts), the stories will focus on Elvira’s MISS-adventures centered around a backstory about Halloween. The collaboration was teased to audiences at the recent Stan Lee’s Comikaze event in September in Los Angeles.“Unlike a typical licensing deal, we are bringing together the power of the Elvira brand, a top-notch female writer, and a rising artist to develop a new line of comic books independently,” says Cassandra Peterson, aka Elvira, Mistress of the Dark. “We will then find a publishing/distribution partner that shares our vision to unleash these stories to the world.”

EW has the info on the long awaited return of Joe Manganiello to HIMYM-
Brad…my, how you’ve changed!
In the Nov. 12 episode of How I Met Your Mother, Joe Manganiello returns as Marshall’s old law school buddy, but as you’ll see from this exclusive first look, he’s looking a little unkempt.
Though definitely not the norm for the True Blood star, it got nothing but praise from Jason Segel, who applauded the actor’s willingness to play the HIMYM way. “Just knowing that Joe has that crazy body underneath that fake gut that we put on him — it’s just hilarious to me. He has no sense of vanity despite having every right to have one,” he told EW. MORE
