Michael Dougherty’s Trick ‘R Treat quickly became a Halloween staple after releasing in 2007—and it’s central figure Sam is one of horror’s cutest icons. Now, just in time for Halloween, Legendary Comics has released Trick ‘R Treat Omnibus: Sam’s 10th Anniversary Collection, bringing the two previously released Trick ‘R Treat graphic novels together for the first time.
The collection, which is available online and in stores now, also features a special new introduction from Dougherty, new cover art, and other cool extras. Here’s the official synopsis:
“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. Then, in Trick ‘r Treat: Days of the Dead, 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…”
