Upcoming Halloween Comics From Devil's Due

Artist Jeff Zornow got in touch to share some artwork and info about the upcoming Halloween comics from Devil’s Due. If you never picked up the recently released Halloween: Nightdance mini (or trade paperback collection), shame on you – it was the Halloween sequel most faithful to John Carpenter’s original but that you’ll never see on screen as it’s not high-concept enough (no webcams or wrestlers!). Anyway, maybe you ain’t a comics person, but try and expand your boundaries a little for these Halloweens because they’re filling in alot of stories we’d never get to see otherwise. Think of them simply as fiction with illustrations.

HALLOWEEN: 30 YEARS OF TERROR – One-Shot, August 27th

A one-shot comic anthology, celebrating the 30th anniversary of John Carpenter’s original Halloween, dealing with characters from the original movie, with stories written by Stefan Hutchinson (the producer and director of the Halloween documentary Halloween: 25 years of Terror) with various artists.

HALLOWEEN: THE FIRST DEATH OF LAURIE STRODE – 3-Issue Mini-Series, September

This is essentially Halloween 3. It takes place just after the events from Halloween/Halloween 2 and deals with the town of Haddonfield trying to cope with the night The Shape came home and riddled their town with death and murder. Though Laurie Strode is still convinced that Michael Myers is still alive, and causing more deaths and mayhem, no one believes her. Is Michael really still alive? Or is Laurie simply sinking into depths of insanity? Only one other person knows for sure, Dr. Sam Loomis! Although he is one person the town of Haddonfield does not want to see ever again! Written by Stef Hutchinson and pencilled and inked Jeff.
