by Hannah Means Shannon

Boom! Studios is debuting a very special First Look here on Comicon.com for one of our favorite series, The Backstagers!

The only thing that could make that announcement better is that it’s a First Look at The Backstagers Halloween Intermission #1. Arriving in shops in October 2018 from series creators James Tynion IV and Rian Sygh, along with special guests Sam Johns (The Backstagers: Valentine’s Intermission), Shan Murphy (Bouquet), Abby Howard (Junior Scientist Power Hour), and Savanna Ganucheau (Bloom).

Boom! sets the stage:

With the days getting shorter and the nights getting spookier, the Backstagers are back for the Halloween season with all-new tales of terrors and creepy creatures. When Sasha accidentally falls asleep backstage, he ends up locked in the theater overnight! What lurks in the shadows, what terrors will he discover, and what the heck are the stage managers chanting? With back-up stories spotlighting your favorite Backstagers, this spine-tingling tale of the stage will leave you with goosebumps you can see from the back row!

The Backstagers: Halloween Intermission #1 features a main cover by Sygh and a variant cover by Veronica Fish (SLAM!).

Shannon Watters, Senior Editor at Boom! Studios. says:

Tricks and treats are nice, but isn’t candy tastier when eaten with theater pals on the spookiest day of the year? James, Rian, Sam and some special guests are packing THE BACKSTAGERS HALLOWEEN INTERMISSION with haunting hijinks and all of the friendship you’ve come to expect from this series.
