‘DCU Halloween” treat

The 48-page one-shot “DC Universe Halloween 2010” isn’t as fun as previous Halloween specials, but some of its stories are amusing enough, and not necessarily for kids only. The eight-pagers that stand out: “Trick For The Scarecrow” (two kids in Bat-costume capture and punish the Scarecrow), “Medusa Non Grata” (Miss Martian and Blue Beetle meet a trick or treating Klarion), and “Time Or Your Life” (a costume party is gatecrashed by Flash and Frankenstein). Nice cover by Gene Ha, but there’s no Solomon Grundy story, and those particular Teen Titans don’t appear in the issue.
