Legendary Releases Festive Motion Trailer for New 'Trick 'r Treat' Graphic Novel Collection


Last month, Legendary Comics kicked off the Halloween season early with their omnibus of the Trick 'r Treat comic book collection from the deliciously dark imagination of the film’s creator Michael Dougherty (writer and director of Godzilla: King of the Monsters, and the holiday horror hit, Krampus), and they've now released a fun motion trailer for the graphic novel that's sure to delight fans of the now-classic Halloween anthology.


The celebratory edition, which unites the past two previously released graphic novels for the first time ever and features a new special introduction from Dougherty, new cover art and other cool extras.


"Even if we can’t have Halloween parties or go trick or treating this year, I hope this compilation will help readers conjure Sam and that special spooky season magic he brings," said Dougherty. "Because as much as the holiday has become about costumes and candy, Halloween was always meant to be a celebration of those who’ve passed, so I can’t think of a better time to gather around a glowing jack-o’-lantern sharing stories that honor the best night of the year."


The full compendium of twisted Halloween tales was brought to life by a top-notch team of creators, including: writers Zach Shields (Godzilla: King of the Monsters, Krampus) and Todd Casey (Krampus); Eisner Award-winning writer Marc Andreyko (Batwoman); Eisner Award-winning artist Fiona Staples (SAGA); ZID (Skull Island: Birth of Kong; Lost in Space: Countdown To Danger); Stuart Sayger (Bram Stoker’s Death Ship); Stephen Byrne (Green Arrow); Grant Bond (Supernatural); Mike Huddleston (Man Bat); and Christopher Gugliotti (Texas Chainsaw Massacre).


First up, Trick ‘r Treat, the graphic novel adaptation of the film, reveals four evocatively illustrated tales of horror interwoven into one unforgettable Halloween night as the unsettling figure known as Sam pays a visit to an unsuspecting community, wreaking havoc during the scariest night of the year.


And then, in Trick ‘r Treat: Days of the Dead, franchise icon Sam takes readers on a journey back through Halloween history with four chilling tales. Discover old-world lovers whose romance takes a chilling turn and Western pioneers who discover the dark side of the frontier. Travel to 1950s Los Angeles for a tale of pure horror noir and into the heart of small-town America to see some pranksters taught a lesson they’ll never forget. Across centuries of Halloween horror, wherever fear lies, Sam will be waiting…
