In preparation for Halloween, which is gonna be a few days from now, I will be reading Halloween related comics…
30 Days of Night: Return to Barrow is another sequel to the original series by Steve Niles and Ben Templesmith. Return to Barrow features Brian Kitka, the brother of a victim of the attack on Barrow in the original miniseries. Kitka becomes Barrow’s new sheriff after moving there with his son to investigate his brother’s demise. Kitka’s skepticism about the claims of a vampire attack disappears when he discovers his deceased brother’s journal, which includes a full account of the attack. He finds himself protecting the town along with John Ikos. This story features the return of several characters from the previous series, including Eben and Stella who save John’s son from the vampires. (wikipedia)
The Long Halloween continues the story of Batman: Year One. It also revolves around the transition of Batman’s rogues gallery from simple mob goons to full-fledged supervillains. It also tells the origin of Two-Face. (wikipedia)
The Nightmare Factory
This book was lent to me by my friend @boxescapee last year and I never really got around finishing reading it… it contains comicbook adaptations of Thomas Ligotti’s short stories, one of the masters of horror literature.
