Trolling for Halloween
Before "trolls" became synonymous with "online idiots," and somewhat after they were best known as fairy-tale creatures that dwelt under bridges, they were so-ugly-they’re-cute collectible dolls made by the Russ company. While they’re not as ubiquitous today as they were a couple decades back, they do still pop up around this time of year in various venues, and this year the writers and artists at Girlamatic decided their work was going to suffer a Russ troll invasion.
Getting in on the troll action are Layla Lawlor, Lisa Jonte, Michelle Mauk, Ariel Childers (sub-only), and my hands-down favorite, Tara Tallan, who takes the opportunity to cleverly combine all three meanings of "troll" mentioned in the above paragraph in an 8-page Galaxion storyline featuring the little dears.
Great reading, and enough to make me want to don my troll earrings to greet this evening’s trick-or-treaters.
