Dark Horse Readies Fans For a ‘Fun, Creepy, and Iconic’ Ride

Editor Megan Walker statd a Halloween anthology is something she and Dark Horse Comics have wanted for a while.

“We were able to assemble a fantastic crew of creators to help carry out that vision,” she continued. “The book is full of fun, creepy, and iconic stories that will scare and delight readers, I can’t wait for everyone to get their hands on it!”

“Being able to write Horror House with David was such a gift to my spooky heart and seeing Tyler’s beautiful artwork bring it all to life was something truly special.” said Kilpatrick. “It’s such a treat to be able to be a part of an anthology series and when that series is about Halloween what more can you want!”

Dastmalchian added, “There is a controlled kind of magic in one-shot, anthological storytelling that follows a tradition of EC Comics, short films and even well-crafted jokes. Getting to collaborate with the amazing Leah Kilpatrick and one of my favorite artists, Tyler Crook, under Megan Walker’s guidance has been the perfect laboratory to cook up a twisted Halloween tale!”

Featuring cover art by Ketner and variant cover art by Mike Mignola, Dave Stewart, and Mark Spears, Headless Horseman Halloween Anthology releases on Oct. 23, 2023, from Dark Horse Comics.
