Ben Cooper masks are what I remember best about Halloween. I always wanted those up-scale Don Post masks offered inside issues of CREEPY, EERIE and VAMPIRELLA, but those Ben Cooper masks were great. Had one of the Batman masks like this one, back in the day. I've been told that the Bat insignia was added to the forehead of the Batman mask because they didn't want parents thinking it was some blue devil mask because of the pointed ears looking like horns. I remember the Ben Cooper Flash mask also having the Flash insignia on the forehead, and that one had pointy ears of a sort too. Hmm.

I grew up on Ben Cooper costumes & masks for halloween, when my parents could afford to buy them for us. My first one was a Batman mask...it used to scare the hell out of my little brother! HA! I remember those cool rubber masks in Eerie, Creepy, Vampirella & FM mags, I lusted after those, and all the other cool things they had in the back in the ads.
