We’ve been waiting years for a follow-up to the Halloween classic Trick ‘r Treat. The film is now celebrating its 15th anniversary with its first major theatrical rollout. As for how a movie can be 15 years old and just get a theatrical release? Well, for that story, we suggest clicking here. And while more of the story is uncertain, Michael Dougherty’s Trick ‘r Treat has had several comic book prequels and sequels over the years. And now, thanks to Kickstarter, they’re hoping collect them all in a new omnibus just in time for Halloween. You can watch the video for the new Kickstarter campaign below.
The Trick ‘r Treat comics omnibus official description says:
The Trick ‘r Treat 15th Anniversary Omnibus Collection is an oversized, 7.5″x11″ graphic novel featuring over 260 pages of content. Legendary Comics brings fans the full compendium of twisted Halloween tales, brought to life by a top-notch team of creators. These include writers Zach Shields (Godzilla: KOTM, Krampus) and Todd Casey (Krampus), writer Marc Andreyko (Batwoman), artist Fiona Staples (SAGA), Zid (Skull Island: Birth of Kong), Stuart Sayger (Bram Stoker’s Death Ship), Stephen Byrne(Green Arrow),Grant Bond(Supernatural), Mike Huddleston (Man Bat), and Christopher Gugliotti (Texas Chainsaw Massacre).
This new collected edition showcases the original Trick ‘r Treat graphic novel adaptation of the film. It also contains four tales of horror interwoven into one unforgettable Halloween night. They all feature the spirit of Halloween night himself, Sam, paying a visit to the unsuspecting participants of All Hallows Eve. This occurs in Trick ‘r Treat: Days of the Dead, the sequel story featuring Sam on a journey through Halloween history. These stories feature Western pioneers discovering the dark side of the frontier, and a tale set in 1950s Los Angeles. Not to mention a horrifying night in small-town America, where some pranksters are taught a lesson they’ll never forget.
