THIS IS ONE OF MTV GEEK'S MOST ANTICIPATED MANGA OF THE FALL!

This fall, Viz is debuting something a little different—"Sweet Rein," a Christmas-themed shoujo manga by Sakura Tsukuba, who is also the creator of "Penguin Revolution" and "Land of the Blindfolded," both published by DC's now defunct manga imprint CMX.

Since we don't speak Japanese, we talked to Viz editor Nancy Thistlethwaite about Christmas in Japan and what we can expect from "Sweet Rein."

THIS IS ONE OF MTV GEEK'S MOST ANTICIPATED MANGA OF THE FALL!

Over the summer, the first copies of Manga: Introduction, Challenges, and Best Practices, a handbook for librarians, teachers, parents, and anyone who just wants to know about manga, started leaking out. Published by the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, it is edited by Melinda Beasi, the proprietor of the website Manga Bookshelf, with help from legendary manga editor Carl Horn. The essays are written by well known manga bloggers and critics, including Erica Friedman, Ed Chavez, Shaenon Garrity, Robin Brenner, and Kate Dacey. It's published by Dark Horse and partially supported by a grant from Neil Gaiman's Gaiman Foundation. So many strands of comics gathered together in a single book! The book debuted at the American Library Association Summer Meeting in June and Anime Expo in July; so far, the CBLDF has only been selling it at conventions, and the next opportunity will be New York Comic Con next month. However, the book will be available in comics shops beginning in December.

THIS IS ONE OF MTV GEEK'S MOST ANTICIPATED MANGA OF THE FALL!

"Attack on Titan" pits a determined band of teenagers against people-eating giants, but it's much, much more than a battle manga. While there's plenty of giant-killing (and people-eating) action, the story also has a lot of depth, with intrigues, grudges, a great ensemble cast, a bit of mystery, and an enemy that seems to be evolving before everyone's eyes. The sixth volume of the manga comes out this week, and it's as good a time as any to jump aboard. Despite the sometimes awkward artwork, this series has been growing in popularity ever since the anime started coming out in English last spring. Here's what you need to know if you want to jump in with volume 6. (Warning: Spoilers ahead!)

I Think I'm Gonna Like it Here - SPN season 9 preview

by Katherine Erlikh

Prepare yourself, winter the 9th season of CW's "Supernatural" is coming, and we couldn't be more excited. Naturally, the promotions have kicked in - we've got the season 8 bloopers, teasers, promo videos, tweets, VanCon 2013 panels in gif and mp4 format... and photos. Lots of photos. However, it's tough if you're trying to stay spoiler-free - the spoilers are all over Reddit, Tumblr, 4Chan and my mum's newsfeed (I'm not kidding, she's like Satan or something). I know things that mortals were not meant to know - which is why today's best thing ever of the day are spoiler-free ish photos of the "Supernatural" season 9 premiere. You can behold these without dying of forbidden knowledge - but if you wanted to see the full spoilerific set, it's over here.

Get your little black dresses ready because we’re heading to Elvira town. Yes, dressing as the Mistress of the Dark looks easy, but it’s more than a slinky black dress, large black hair and a ton, a ton, of cleavage. Who knew 25 years after the release of Elvira: Mistress of the Dark that she’d still be some people’s number one choice when it came to dress up time? No one, but most are glad she is because it’s not just a sexy outfit, it’s one badass chick.

Kleefeld's FanthropologyLet me share with you three of my favorite series.

My first real fannish interest was the Fantastic Four, particularly the comic book. Despite not liking the first FF story I'd read as a young child, I got an issue for my eleventh birthday and was just absolutely riveted. The characters were so engaging and relatable to me. I loved the dynamic of this sort-of-made-up-family going off and exploring the unknown reaches of another universe. So much so that when one of the lead characters "died" at the end of the twenty-some pages, I just had to find out what happened next! I went on to collect the entire series, going all the way back to the very first issue from 1961, and later put together a Fantastic Four fan site.

Like with the people who cosplay as Elvira, you’d think it’d be the same tattoo over and over – but it’s not.

So to celebrate the 25th anniversary of one of the best and most well-loved cult classics, here are 13 people who decided Elvira was the perfect tattoo subject.
