Anyone who has ever met a member of the Isotope staff can tell you without a shadow of a doubt that we take our Halloween partying seriously. Which is why each year we hold our annual bash with the glam rock gods and goddesses of TRIPLE COBRA.

Who, or what is Triple Cobra? The biggest, the best, the most incredible pure sex confetti cannon blasting white leather and feather be-dazzled "Best Discovery At SXSW 2009" spectacle you may ever see! Click here and agree, the whole world should be this beautiful.

So once again we invite you to join us for a night of truly bringing the fun back to All-Hallow's Eve.

Thanks to costume designing skills of our very own Kirsten Baldock the Isotope staff continues to rock the San Francisco nightlife with an assortment of awesomely nerdy costumes year in and year out. And this year will be no different, this year we will be recreating in costume form the pride of comics' Silver Age... the single greatest comic book panel ever printed. You read that right... the single greatest comic book panel ever printed!

Be there.

Thank You From All of Us to All of You
For a Halloween That Truly Rocked

It's been a crazy post-Halloween day here at the Isotope. With an outrageous interview for the up-coming issue of Punks: The Comic due and a live interview with Comic Book Talk Radio taking up a goodly portion of my day, So now I'm definitely ready for a nice relaxing dinner and a quiet evening at the Sanctum Sanctorum. But I had to take the time to thank all of you who attended last night's incredible Monster Mosh Halloween Party we threw with our friends at The Onion, Triple Cobra, Ms Monster, B-Minus Comics, and 12 Galaxies.

That was one hell of a great party!

We expected to pack the house to rafters and beyond, but honestly, we had no idea we'd be seeing upwards of 200 more people than our wildest expectations could have ever hoped for in attendance! And talk about the costumes! After seeing how so many of the major Bay Area Halloween costume hot-spots have been watered down year after year, it was really exciting to see so many amazing costumed SF sexpots out last night dressed to the nines. Everyone saw so many jaw-dropping outfits that there really was absolutely no doubt in anyone's mind why San Francisco is the greatest city on Earth, and it brought a tear to my non-Nick Fury patched eye when I was given a big hug and told "Yay! Halloween is fun again!" by a pretty young lady who I honestly have no idea if I have ever met before.

Because, yes. And yay. Halloween is fun again.

As my way of showing my appreciation to each and every one of you who came out and made that the great party that it was I'm going to thank you in one of the best ways I know how... with a trio of swoon-inducing Audrey Hepburn pictures.

You people kick ass.

Stuck at Home for Halloween?
Rob Zombie Does the YouTube

Happy Halloween from your friends at the Isotope!

After taking a couple weeks of internet detox, it brings me great joy to return to the communique with lots of tricks and treats in celebration of one of my favorite holidays of all! As most of you probably already know we're throwing a massive all-hallows eve bash tonight, but for those of you who won't be lurking the streets, the parties, and the bars tonight allow me to point your browsers towards a fright-filled festival you can enjjoy from the comfort of your very own desk or laptop...

Famed horror rocker and director Rob Zombie has taken over the YouTube and unleashing the terror by hand-picking the most horrifying videos on the internet, along with various tongue-in-cheek video parody trailers of Zombie's controversial Halloween remake. If that wasn't enough to celebrate the day long witching hour holiday, Mister Zombie is also giving away free VIP concert tickets for life too!

You won't want to miss music videos like The Zombeatles - "A Hard Day's Night of the Living Dead", cool Halloween instructional how-to movies, and the hilarious mini-feature House of 1000 Muppets.

This year we've teamed up with our friends at the world's greatest newspaper The Onion, the best band in the entire city Triple Cobra, the non-speaking order of the Grande Chartreuse monastery who make the fabulous Chartreuse Liquor, the crazy gentlemen behind B-Minus Comics, and our all-time favorite cable access horror hostess Ms. Monster!

This is going to be absolutely legendary.
