Fans of the Halloween anthology film starring our favorite little trick-or-treater is back. This is not a about the sequel that we are all eagerly awaiting but about something that can be in your hands in less than 2 weeks time. On October 6th Michael Doughtery is releasing a comic book prequel to his hit 2007 cult classic Trick R’ Treat called Trick R’ Treat: Days of The Dead. The Amazon pre-order is now up and ready for you to receive the comic on release day.
This 144 page comic book which is being released by Legendary Comics is written by creator Michael Dougherty who is also directing the upcoming Krampus and features a top of the line team of artists. Fiona Staples (Saga), Stephen Byrne (Buffy/Angel), Stuart Sayger (Bram Stoker’s Death Ship) and Zid (Son of Merlin) come together to create this 4-part collection that will help fans get ready for the sequel.
The synopsis goes like this:
Days of the Dead ventures through the ages for this chilling collection of Halloween-time stories: from old-world lovers whose romance takes a darker turn, to pioneers who discover more than they bargained for out West, to an edgy 1950s Los Angeles tale dripping with horror noir, and straight through the heart of small-town America to teach a couple of a trouble-making pranksters a lesson they’ll never forget.
Across the centuries of Halloween horror, wherever fear lies, Sam will be waiting.
