Coming this October from Image Comics is The Perhapanauts Halloween Spooktacular. The comic contains three terrifying Halloween tales to thrill, chill, and amuse! A great one-shot jumping-on point for new readers to get everyone in the spooky Halloween spirit!

We spoke with writer, Todd Dezago, about The Perhapanauts Halloween Spooktacular.

The Big Bad Wolf: Can you give our readers a synopsis of each of the stories featured in The Perhapanauts Halloween Spooktacular?

Perhapanauts HalloweenTodd Dezago: Our first story features "Big" as he heads to Brazil on Halloween to track down the legendary Mapinguary, a bigfoot-like creature that is said to roam the amazon! Then "Choopie", overwhelmed by the idea of people giving away free candy, realizes that he too could celebrate Halloween if he just had the right costume...and finally, a story from The Perhapanauts case files as the team heads over to the Bavarian Alps to investigate reports of the elusive Tatzelwurm! You don't want to miss a moment of the action, suspense, and excitement!

The Big Bad Wolf: What kind of creatures of the night will we see The Perhapanauts take on in this book?

Todd Dezago: The Mapinguary is the Brazilian answer to our own Sasquatch, although theirs tends to have features that are reported to be a bit more sloth-like...and a few other qualities that you'll just have to see to believe. The Tatzelwurm is cryptid that has been seen in the alpine region for centuries. Described as a serpent with the body of a snake but the head and forelegs of a feral cat. In Choopie's Halloween, Choopie comes face-to-goggles with a nasty green monster that lives in a garbage dumpster...sound familiar?

The Big Bad Wolf: With a team like The Perhapanauts, there is no doubt that a Halloween special is a natural fit. What makes this one shot such a good jumping-on point for new readers?

Todd Dezago: All the stories are fun, done-in-one, and give new readers a flavor as to what The Perhapanauts are all about! Who WOULDN'T want monsters on Halloween?!

The Big Bad Wolf: Craig seems to get some help on the art in this book. Other artists include Rich Woodall and Fred Hembeck. In addition to the interior artists, cover artists include Matt Pott, Francesco Francavilla and the legendary, Mike Ploog! As a creator, how does it feel to see your creations drawn by some other amazing artists?

Todd Dezago: We LOVE seeing the 'haps under the pencils and brush of other artists, different styles, different takes...it's very exciting! To have them rendered by up-and-comers like Matt and Rich and industry legends like Fred, Francesco, and Mike Ploog...well, what more could any creator ask...?

The Big Bad Wolf: When is the release date of this Halloween issue? Perhapanauts Halloween comic
