There are many horror fans who consider Michael Dougherty’s Trick ‘r’ Treat to be one of the finest examples of a horror anthology, and the sequel cannot come soon enough. Dougherty also has the Christmas themed horror Krampus in development, and while we will have to wait a while for both, Legendary have come up with something to keep fans occupied.
Both Trick ‘r’ Treat and Krampus will be getting graphic novel versions based on the films, but telling new stories.
The Press Release:
Halloween and Christmas will never be the same again as Sam is back and Krampus has arrived… Legendary Comics is taking the twisted stories from the mind of Michael Dougherty from the screen to the printed page with the announcement of two graphic novels based on Trick ‘r Treat and Krampus. Hitting stores later this year, the all-new books are tied into the world of Dougherty’s highly-anticipated big screen releases.
“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
More information on each title will be released at a later date. Read on for what we have thus far.
