Check out this Michael Myers bloody snow globe
By Kevin Coffey / World-Herald staff writer


Those people walking around Comic-Con and dressed up as the Joker, Boba Fett, Aquaman and Wolverine don't wear costumes professionally. In a new video, Business Insider stopped various Walter Whites, Jokers, Zatannas and Super Marios to find what they do for a living, and the results are surprising.

There are as many fans of Mark Hamill's portrayal of The Joker in various Batman animated properties as there are fans of Heath Ledger's Oscar-winning portrayal of same character in “The Dark Knight.” So when Hamill (you know him as Luke Skywalker, by the way) stopped doing the voice after two decades, actor Troy Baker was hired to play the villain in a new Batman video game, “Arkham Origins.” And he does the delightfully creepy voice as well as Hamill or maybe better. Watch a video of Baker reading a monologue from “The Killing Joke” comic book and decide for yourself.

It's almost Halloween, and we're sifting through our old decorations that include bad spider webs and plastic skulls. What we wish we had was a “Halloween” snow globe with slasher Michael Myers. The thing is, the snow isn't snow at all. It's red blood flying around as Myers is attacking his latest victim. Creepy.
