Are You Giving Away Candy… Or Comics, This Hallowe'en?


Round Kingston Vale on the outskirts of London, I've discovered that our house has become a target for kids at Hallowe'en time. Because I've now got the reputation for not giving away sweets, chocolates or candy, but "American comic books".

Okay, I throw a few British ones in there as well.

But far better to rot their brain than rot their teeth. And it's always fun to see kids fight and rip their way to a recognised character or something that just looks cool…

Why don't you try it? Look through the collection, find some spare semi-suitable choices and put a small box of them by the front door. And then tell me how it goes…
