This year’s stories include the origin of serial killer Charlie August as bodies pile up at a posh 1920s hotel leading up to Halloween in Hotel Charlie. Then, a sheriff in a small town begins to suspect something is amiss on All Hallow’s Eve in the middle of the 20th-century tale Halloween '52 (think Mayberry meets the Twilight Zone!).

The Halloween Haunt 2023 annual graphic novel delivers terrifying tales of horror from the golden age of the 1920s to mid-century Americana and ending in the pulp noir rain-soaked streets of a modern metropolis.

The Final Boys: Halloween Apocalypse

​The Final Boys Halloween Apocalypse

On the verge of getting out of the comics business, Stan Lee’s wife encouraged Stan to do the comic he always wanted, the way he wanted it. And that bore “The Fantastic Four.” Well, we did the same thing, and we got our own foursome—sort of.

On Halloween, it seems a nuclear device decimated the world and only a powerful A.I. remains to rebuild things. But after sustaining damage in the incident, it decided the best way to save the world was to create heroes based on old VHS B-Movie “heroes”. Come together on this spooky, post-apocalyptic Halloween and meet our radiation-borne heroes: Jak the half-human, half-pumpkin teenage slacker. Savage Owl, half-human, half-owl (and all savage). Tod, half-human, half-demonic baby. And Dr. Frankenstein, who has been selected as their guide. Can this strangest of strange and unlikely avengers take on the mysterious half-robot, half-recycled human organs automatons that now claim the Earth?

I think Stan would be proud.

This special, first edition includes full renderings of VHS-style sleeves for our characters plus unused art gallery!
