I Luv Halloween, Vol. 1by Keith Giffen and Ben Roman
Synopses & Reviews
Halloween has always been and always will be about one thing: CANDY.
However, some fiendish friends excel at the tricks if they don't get the right treats. When these gremlins receive a boring apple at their first house followed by a poor selection of candy, they plan deadly revenge on the offending fruit-flavoring old-timer.
Join the misadventures of a group of particularly disturbing trick-or-treaters as they go about their macabre business on Halloween night.
"Finch and his sister, Moochie, are all ready for Halloween, and they look adorable. Finch is dressed as a zombie, while Moochie is the Tooth Fairy. By the time we realize that Moochie is stealing teeth from a house full of dead bodies, and Finch knows more about zombies than any child has a right to, we've already been drawn into their cute but gruesome world. Giffen (Formerly Known as the Justice League) and Roman (The Lonely Tombstone) have concocted a black comedy that reads as if Quentin Tarantino and Tim Burton had collaborated on a Halloween heist story. As the story progresses, a mysterious kid dressed as a devil who might just be one, razor blades in apples, a boy named Mr. Kitty with a breast fetish, a dead dog, a missing bra and much more mix together for a lively and inventive tale. Giffen's darkly humored script draws laughs from such things as evisceration while capturing the childlike glee at dressing up and walking by a scary graveyard. He also leaves plenty of mysteries for the next two volumes to solve. Cocreator Roman's art is occasionally too detailed for the small pages, but he excels at unique character designs and macabre details. Full of ghoulish tricks, I Luv Halloween is a seasonal treat that the not easily offended will thoroughly enjoy." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
"I Luv Halloween isn't the best original manga to hit the shelves...but there's a wickedly perverse sense of humor at play here... (Rating: Must Read)" IGN
Believing that the apples they received at their first house of the night are the cause of the bad candy they've been getting, the kids plot deadly revenge on the old lady who handed out the cursed fruit.
