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.
