Legendary Comics is taking the twisted stories from the mind of Michael Dougherty from his films to the printed page. They will be publishing two graphic novels based on Trick 'r Treat and Krampus. Both comics directly tie to the horror films about Halloween and Christmas.
"I've been having way too much fun working with Legendary and the rest of my team bringing the ancient legend of Krampus to the big screen, and I look forward to expanding the film's dark Christmas mythology onto the comic page. And hopefully the fans who've been patiently waiting for TRICK 'R TREAT 2 will enjoy this deeper peek into Sam's world until he finally rises from the pumpkin patch once more. Happy Holidays." -Michael Dougherty
To make this happen they've pulled in comic writers Mark Andreyko and Brandon Seifert along with artists Fiona Staples, Zid, Stuart Sayger, Stephen Byrne, Michael Montenant, Maan House and Christian DiBari. Look for these titles in October and November.
