From the twisted imagination of creator Michael Dougherty (director of the upcoming Krampus and Trick ‘r Treat, screenwriter of X-Men 2 and Superman Returns) and a top-notch team of artists including 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 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.
Trick ‘r Treat: Days of the Dead will be released on October 6.
