Michael Dougherty (X2, Superman Returns) announced at Fangoria’s Weekend of Horrors that WildStorm Comics would be releasing a graphic novel adaptation of Trick ‘R Treat on October 7th. Dougherty tells /Film:
I grew up on old horror comics, and they were a huge inspiration for Trick ‘r Treat, so it’s been great working with DC and WildStorm to keep the anthology genre alive while also giving people a sneak peek at some of the twisted fun they’ll see in the movie.
Written by Marc Andreyko (Manhunter, Torso), featuring art by Mike Huddleston (Man-Bat, Gen 13), Grant Bond, Christopher Gugliotti (Texas Chainsaw Massacre) and Fiona Staples (North 40), and a cover designed by Breehn Burns. We have an EXCLUSIVE first look at the cover (above) and first five pages (avaialble after the jump), art by Fiona Staples.
