Earlier this year, Stefan Hutchinson’s comic mini-series Halloween: Nightdance brought back the classic Michael Myers in a big way. It not only proved better than all the sequels combined, it nearly erased every bad memory from Rob Zombie’s romp in trailer park land.
We’ve been eagerly anticipating Hutchinson’s follow-up and today he dropped us a line with some news regarding his next stab at The Shape:
“The big news is the second series, which has been designed as a jumping point for new readers. It’s set in 1979, and is entitled ‘Halloween: The First Death Of Laurie Strode’.
It’s illustrated by Jeff Zornow (who is known in the horror community for his ‘Fright Rags’ t-shirt designs). I’m on-board for the writing duties, and the story is about what happened to Laurie Strode following the events of ‘Halloween’ and ‘Halloween II’, so it also fills in a lot of back-story for fans of the films.”
The new series debuts this September, but in the meantime you can (and should) check out the graphic novel version of Halloween: Nightdance (pre-order from EvilShop here) which hits shelves on August 16th.
