Sneak Peek: THE LAST HALLOWEEN from Iron Circus Comics

Summer’s been going on for so long we nearly forgot that fall is creeping up on us, and Iron Circus Comics is taking that “creep” to heart with their big October release, Abby Howard’s YA horror graphic novel, The Last Halloween!

The book is a 400+ page scare-fest in which an interdimensional monster invasion takes place on Halloween night, leaving a reluctant little human and her ragtag band of friendly monsters to fight them back. Though it’s very funny and on the younger side of YA it’s got a lot of seriously grisly mayhem that isn’t for the faint of heart; it will be a huge hit with precocious tweens and all horror-loving young ones, especially in this Halloween season with its mix of classic cartoony monsters, actual horrific monsters, and trick-or-treat themes.

Kids (and adults!) will especially relate to Mona, the reluctant tween mentioned above, as she goes from bored and stuck at home to scared out of her wits to potential savior of the human race. It’s a traditional hero’s journey that’s “catchy” and a breeze to follow, yet full of unexpected twists and turns through Abby’s wild imagination. As the dangers mount, Mona rises to her calling despite how unfair it is, and her band of outcasts learn to believe in themselves and work as a team. It’s an exhilarating read that’s about something beyond the terrifically fun Halloween coating. 

Look for The Last Halloween to be released on October 20th.
