Press Release – Halloween Man


Imagine a world filled where every piece of pulp fiction is true. Where superheroes fly through the sunlit sky and terrifying creatures go bump in the night. Where flying cars, robots and time travel are commonplace, and ancient evils plot to rise again. This is Solar City, Texas – home to a heroic monster and the brilliant woman by his side.

Halloween Man is a 21st Century Beauty and the Beast story that brings together the most amazing aspects of horror, superheroes, and science fiction. Come along for the ride, and meet our outlandish cast: There’s Dr. Lucy Chaplin, a sex kitten of a mad scientist, Man-Goat, a superhero with the power of a Man-Sized Goat, and Morlack, an aged wizard turned beatnik.

All of whom pale in comparison to Solomon Hitch, the Halloween Man himself. A misunderstood monster with the power of the horror movie sequel, this hero has a heart of gold, and a taste for living flesh. Still, with his friends at his side he might just beat back the bad guys – and everyone else in his way.

Halloween Man – Superdeformed includes brand new stories and some of the best loved tales from the popular webcomic. Written by Drew Edwards, featuring art by Nicola (Birds of Prey, Secret Six) Scott, Benjamin ([email protected]: Protectorate) Hall and David (Nomad: Girl Without A World, Blue Beetle) Baldeón. Cover by Nicola Scott with Terry Parr.

Available to order now from Indyplanet

Praise for Halloween Man:

Some of them are monsters and some of them are dead, but Drew Edwards never loses sight of his characters’ essential humanity. HALLOWEEN MAN is old school Gothic romance with a post-Kirby twist. A cauldron of cool – Drew Melbourne (Writer, Archenemies)

Quite possibly one of the coolest concepts in comics. Good bad fun for bad readers with good taste, Halloween Man is highly recommended! – Gail Simone (Writer, Birds of Prey, Wonder Woman, Simpsons Comics, Justice League Unlimited)

This stuff is so weird it’s almost as weird as certain Japanese webcomics I’ve come across. Edwards has distinct goals in mind. He wants the stories to FLY, and he wants the look – he employs several different artists – to all hearken back to old EC comics, which they do marvellously – Jason Henderson (Writer, Sword of Dracula, Psy-Comm)

‘Halloween Man’ remains one of the best of the web comic evolution. It’s savvy, self aware, and bends genres at a whim, resulting in the coolest “Silver Age Superhero meets 80’s Horror Sci-Fi Hooha Comic co -starring a Man Goat” that you will ever find – Tim Seeley (Writer Hack/Slash, Loaded Bible)
