I always gather months worth of Halloween items to post, and am unable to fit them all in by the time the big day rolls around. So here are a bunch of assorted goodies!

And a perfect zombie pumpkin by Ray Villafane.
Put down your superhero comics, folks. It’s time for PSYCHOANALYSIS! Faster than free associations! Stronger than neuroses! Able to leap elongated sofas in a single bound!
Psychoanalysis was a short-lived comic book published by EC Comics in 1955, the fifth title in its New Direction line. The bi-monthly comic was published by William Gaines and edited by Al Feldstein. Psychoanalysis was approved by the Comics Code Authority, but newsstands were reluctant to display it. It lasted a total of four issues before being canceled along with EC’s other New Direction comics.
The comic featured three patients, Freddy Carter, Ellen Lyman and Mark Stone, who were undergoing psychoanalysis. The analyst was the central character. He was never named, simply listed as The Psychiatrist. Ellen Lyman did not appear in the fourth and final issue, having been cured in the third issue.
Later, all 4 issues were compiled in a book (and briefly re-issued individually in the 90’s).
