Michael Dougherty is bringing us a graphic novel titled Trick ‘R Treat: Days of the Dead. This series will be a special 4-part series with all-new Trick ‘r Treat Halloween tales. This time around we will travel deeper in time as some stories take us back to the 1950s. I am still waiting on the Trick ‘R Treat 2 / Trick ‘R Treat sequel so I will most likely grab this horror graphic novel via Legendary available now. Cover art, preview page, and press release details below.
From the twisted imagination of Trick ‘r Treat creator Michael Dougherty (director of the upcoming Krampus and Trick ‘r Treat 2 and screenwriter of X-Men 2 and Superman Returns) alongside a top-notch team of creators including writers Todd Casey and Zach Shields (Krampus), Marc Andreyko (Batwoman) and artists Fiona Staples (Saga), Stephen Byrne (Buffy/Angel), Stuart Sayger (Bram Stoker’s Death Ship) and Zid (Son of Merlin) comes this 4-part collection that paves the way for the Trick ‘r Treat film sequel.
Days of the Dead takes readers on a journey through Halloween history with 4 chilling new Trick ‘r Treat tales. Discover old-world lovers whose romance takes a chilling turn and Western pioneers who discover the dark side of the frontier. Travel to 1950s Los Angeles for a tale of pure horror noir and into the heart of small-town America to see some pranksters taught a lesson they’ll never forget.
Across centuries of Halloween horror, wherever fear lies, Sam will be waiting.
