Preview: The Monster Apocalypse Is Nigh- ‘The Last Halloween Vol. 1: Children’

by Brendan M. Allen

In time for Halloween, Iron Circus Comics announced a 400+ page scare-fest by cartoonist Abby Howard, The Last Halloween Volume 1: Children. Aimed at the Young Adult crowd, The Last Halloween is full of grisly mayhem and dark humor. 

Kids (and adults) will especially relate to Mona, a reluctant tween, as she goes from stuck at home bored to potential savior of the human race. It’s a traditional hero’s journey that’s easy to follow, yet full of unexpected twists and turns through Abby’s wild imagination.

‘It’s Halloween night and 10-year-old Mona is stuck inside without so much as a scary movie to watch. She figures this Halloween couldn’t get any worse, but a giant monster appears in her living room to prove her very, very wrong. She is chased out into the night where she encounters some odd new friends and finds herself on a quest to save humanity from billions of monsters. Though Mona is the textbook definition of a reluctant hero, she and her friends will do their best to keep this from being… The Last Halloween.’
