OUR FINAL HALLOWEEN
By Mike Garley and Michael Lee-Graham
"Five kids wake up in an abandoned house. They don’t know why they're there, how they got there, or whose blood they’re covered in..."
And so starts OUR FINAL HALLOWEEN, a new 0ne-shot digital horror comic from Mike Garley (Adventure Time, Wallace and Gromit) and Michael Lee-Graham (Shortlist Magazine, Dead Roots).
I was lucky enough to get a early look at the completed project and I am thoroughly impressed by the truly frightening tale they were able to create in just 35 pages. This supernatural tale has a heavy Lovecraftian feel to it, with a bit of Amityville Horror and The Gate to round it out.
Hopefully you as a reader are not shy about blood! There is blood shed on almost every page. Not just a little, we are talking buckets and buckets. The blood is really important to the art style. A basic pallet of colors is used throughout the story. Heavy outlines and solid colors prevail and the blood red really makes the pages pop.
The art style and coloring match the feel of the story. The story itself is tight and well paced. We start right in the middle of the action and the story barrels along at a break-neck pace to a finale that will leave you guessing.
The comic is being produced as a digital release that will be delivered on October 31st, just in time for a great Halloween night read.
The Kickstarter campaign is now live and will end on October 30th. You can pledge to receive the comic for $4 and a Director's Cut for $7 that includes an alternate cover, a very in depth horror essay by Shaun Kimber, a collection of guest artist pin-ups and an original 6 track soundtrack by Ian Alex-Mac to listen to as you read the story.
