More Halloween Comics on the way

Halloween comic from Devil's DueFollowing the success of Halloween: Nightdance, the four issue mini-series based on the popular film franchise, more Halloween-inspired comics are on their way, after issues one and two of the mini series proved so popular publishers Devil’s Due have had to reprint them.

The Halloween 30th Anniversary Special will be a 48 page standalone title featuring artwork by comic talent such as Tim Seeley, Bret Wedele, and Danijel Zezelj.

Writer Stef Hutchinson says that “This year is the 30th anniversary of the film, and the previous decades have all had some sort of celebration. In 1988, they brought back the character in Halloween 4; and in 1998, they had the 20th anniversary film Halloween: H20. This year, with the remake having come out in 2007, there’s nothing in place to celebrate it.

“So what we have here is a double-sized anniversary book, with five short stories inspired by characters and situations from John Carpenter’s classic. The artists have been chosen by the series editor, Stephen Christy, and he’s brought in some fantastic talent to bring these to life.”

With other Halloween comics planned, such as a mini-series focusing on Laurie Strode, there is much for Halloween fans to look forward to.
