Happy Fabulous First Tara Normal!

Today marks #52 of Tara Normal, the name of our favorite girl ghost and ghoul detective comic.

Following the adventures of, you guessed it - Tara Normal, a pop-culturally savvy female paranormal investigator - the comic is the funny, slightly touched lovechild of a hot, sweaty fourway between The Venture Bros., MAD Magazine, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and creator Howie Noel.

It's funny, ironic and a much needed addition to the paranormal community. Along with the special TAPS edition of the comic - which appears every issue of the Paramag - Tara gets a fresh installment each Wednesday.

So happy birthday to Tara Normal. And if you're not a fan of hers, we think less of you.
