Halloween Comics

 

best955405I grabbed this at a convention an found myself wondering what it could be.

As slasher series go, I’ve always found Halloween to be much of the same. It did the masked stalker first and created a genre, but it’s sequels always felt like the same film made over and over again.

The comic has some good moments. It’s nice to see Loomis proper again, and being full of short stories it gives us several visions, set in that universe while never really trying to repeat the same old tales we’ve heard again and again.

It’s a pleasant surprise, but still new enough that you’re likely going to have to drop the full cover price to grab it, however if you’re a Halloween fan I recommend it. As good as any of the sequels, and better than a few of them.
