Marvel’s current Avengers book will be getting a spooky spinoff this fall. Get ready for an all-new horror themed Halloween Special.
As “Halloween specials” go, I have to say I’ve never pictured the Avengers getting one. And yet here we are, and it actually sounds kind of neat. That might be just that I’m a sucker for anything with jack-o-lanterns on it though, so keep that in mind.
This Halloween, the Avengers will shock readers with their spookiest stories and the most fearful tales! Iron Man and Captain America take on a journey for one of Howard Stark’s abandoned weapons…but what they find is different than any kind of horror that they’ve encountered…
With bonus stories featuring your favorite Marvel heroes, including Daredevil, Punisher, and the X-Men, AVENGERS HALLOWEEN SPECIAL brings together an epic team writers and artists to take your favorite characters on all-new frightful journeys, including acclaimed creators Gerry Duggan (Despicable Deadpool, Infinity Countdown, Infinity Wars), Robbie Thompson (Doctor Strange and the Sorcerer’s Supreme, Spider-Man/Deadpool), and Canadian horror producers and screenwriters Jen Soska and Sylvia Soska (The Soska Sisters) (American Mary, See No Evil 2)! Plus, superstar writer Jay Baruchel (The Goon, This is the End) make their Marvel Comics debut!
“It’s going to be a horror anthology with five frightful tales full of chills and thrills,” teased editor Jake Thomas. “The stories will showcase your favorite Marvel heroes through a funhouse mirror of the macabre, twisting their stories into terrifying tales sure to send shivers up your spine! The only thing scarier than reading this issue would be missing it!”
Don’t miss all the horror and thrills this October, when AVENGERS HALLOWEEN SPECIAL hits comic shops!
The Avengers Halloween Special hits stores (when else?) on October 31st.
