Halloween Eve (One-Shot)
Story by: Brandon Montclare Art By: Amy Reeder
Eve has an imagination that’s more than active – it can be downright dangerous! Working late at the costume super-store Halloween Land, she gets lost in her own thoughts until something goes bump in the night. The rubber masks and plastic novelties are coming to life, and Eve must face ghosts, goblins, and gorilla suits made real.
High fantasy and heartbreak in an oversized holiday one-shot by BRANDON MONTCLARE (FEAR ITSELF: FEARSOME FOUR) and Eisner Award nominee AMY REEDER (BATWOMAN, MADAME XANADU).
Working late at the Halloween Land super-store can get pretty soul-numbing, so Eve thought she was pretty lucky to have such a great imagination. But it turns out that her imagination isn’t just active — it’s dangerous! In the new one-shot comic Halloween Eve by Brandon Montclare and Amy Reeder, to be published in October by Image Comics, Eve gets a bump in the night that could turn her dead-end job deadly. Surrounded by masks, costumes, and novelties that her that have come to life, Eve will have to fight her way through a horde of horror or she’ll never make it to Halloween!
Conceived and drawn by Reeder and written by Montclare, Halloween Eve isn’t just a spooky scamper; it’s also the story of Eve — an expert costumer who loves to dress up, snarky and able to mercilessly size up others, but not so great at seeing herself for who she really is. The Halloween items that come to life have one goal: to find out who Eve is beneath her masks.
After running a successful Kickstarter campaign that met its goal just six days after being launched, Reeder and Montclare announced that Halloween Eve was coming to Image Comics.
Halloween Eve is a 40-page (32 story pages plus other content) full-color comic, due out in October 2012 to celebrate Halloween. It’s a stand-alone, self-contained tale of magic and adventure geared toward teen and adult audiences. It will be available for pre-order in the August issue of Previews.
