Horror Comic Review: Halloween Girl Vol 1: Promises To Keep

Released on Oct 1st, Halloween Girl Vol 1: Promises to Keep horror comic by Richard T. Wilson and Stephen Mullan is a treat for the fans of the movie as well as those who love Halloween season!

Synopsis & the idea behind the comic:

Based on characters that first appeared in ’The Halloween Girl’ film and its sister web series, ‘Under the Flowers’, Halloween Girl Vol 1: Promises to Keep sees angst-ridden teen ghost Charlotte Williams (played by Catherine Kustra in the film) return in this brand-new adventure to battle the diabolical secret society The Hollow. Alongside her supernatural ally, Poe, they battle The Hollow for the soul of Crystal Springs and their own salvation.

Official Book Synopsis
Death is a lot of damned work’, thinks 18-year-old ghost, Charlotte Williams, as she braves the unsettled world of the In-Between. It’s inside the In-Between that Charlotte finds the clues she desperately needs that will help turn the tide in her battle against diabolic, secret society, The Hollow (who took her life and just happen to be trying to end the world!).

Returning to the ‘Bone Yard’ (aka Crystal Springs Cemetery), Charlotte meets up with her supernatural gal pal Poe, an acerbic goth who works with her to decipher the latest clues. Following a series of confrontations that continue to escalate the danger, Charlotte’s world is further rocked when The Hollow kidnap her young son, Luke. To get him back, Charlotte and Poe are forced to separate, individually confront their own dark pasts and maybe, just maybe, save the world.

The idea for the Halloween Girl graphic novel series came to film director and series creator Richard T. Wilson, while wrapping up the last season of the supernatural series, ‘Under the Flowers.’ “I realized I had so many more of Charlotte’s stories to tell that I just couldn’t fit into the series,” says Richard. “Long story short, I had been envisioning a graphic novel adaptation of the characters featured in ‘The Halloween Girl’ and ‘Under the Flowers’ films for a while – and so, I finally dove in!” The stories have continued to develop between Vol 1, as Richard has already written Vol 2 of the series, Gods and Monsters, and is currently working on Vol 3.

Spoiler-Free Review:

Halloween Girl is a popular horror movie (IMDb) starring Catherine Kustra as Charlotte Williams which explored the life after death aspect in an interesting way. This horror comic by Richard T. Wilson in collaboration with Art by Stephen Mullan provides the same spectacular storytelling that fans love about the movie. Volume 1 starts in the Halloween season and thus, is a perfect read this month! We follow the protagonist, Charlotte as she tries to discover the truth behind the paranormal activity in a particular house..
Once we get acquainted with Charlotte and her special powers, we get to see that there’s an issue about a paranormal incident which needs to be resolved and Charlotte finds a young boy named Bobby in a spider costume that’s getting bullied by 2 other boys. Charlotte saves him and gets invited to Bobby’s house for some treats. She did feel that there’s more to it than meets the eye but still ventures to the house only to know about a dark secret that is a threat to her as well as the townsfolk! The story is satisfying and the ending makes you eager for the next issue, which explores more about creatures, and spirits!
The horror comic is beautifully illustrated and the storyline is amazingly detailed yet easy to follow! Characters are realistic and still feel like artwork. The style of this comic gives it a unique dark and fun feel to it. Lettering is perfect and makes sure that every dialogue is neat and not cluttered. The horror comic has horror but no mature content and thus, seems perfect for teens and above.
In conclusion, Halloween Girl Vol 1 Promises to Keep is an enjoyable, scary and often humorous horror comic that’s a treat you wouldn’t want to miss this Halloween season! Grab it today!
