    One thought on “The Halloween Legion”

    1. It's really hard to go far wrong with a book that's got a mummy, a zombie alligator, and flying shrunken heads all within the first two pages.The Halloween Legion is basically the Fantastic Four with a skeleton, a witch, a pyrokinetic girl in a devil costume, and a ghost with tennis shoes (and a black cat). In this inaugural volume, they're fighting off the titular "Great Goblin Invasion," which is adorable space goblins in 50s sci-fi movie standard flying saucers. The storytelling is incredibly [...]

    2. Fun graphic novel - these are definitely my type of superheroes! I love Halloween. Illustrations were pretty nice. I enjoyed the story and really hope for more volumes. The characters were awesome, but a bit underdeveloped. Hope that will be remedied if there are future volumes.Really enjoyed this.

    3. I'm not sure who this book is for, age-wise. Middle grade concepts, but maybe too scary? A little to baby for true YA. The plot is all over the place. I almost never feel this way, but but, this story could have had more words, more explanation about wtf is happening.

    4. Writer Martin Powell and artists Thomas Boatwright and Diana Leto all combine forces to create a memorable graphic novel about a group of misfits who come together to save the day against the titular goblin invasion. This is a moody mix of SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COMES era Bradbury with hints of INVADERS FROM MARS and some of Powell's own potent storytelling magic. To tell you too much more will take away from the experience, so suffice to say that if that sounds like something you would enjoy [...]

    5. The Halloween Legion is a novella introducing a team of super powered monster-like heroes. From a super strong giant man in a skeleton outfit, to a ghost in a white sheet, to a witch and her black cat familiar. Molly is about to discover that her small town, and she herself, are hiding great secrets within. For fans of Halloween and super heroes, this novella will entertain and inspire you. If the monsters don't get you first.

    6. Martin Powell has a very unique style of delivering a story. Had you told me how he did it, I'd say, "oh no! That will never work!" But it did and I enjoyed the story very much. As I said in an early comment, the book is definitely one for all ages, but NOT in a bad way! This volume deals with a lot of "origins," something else that normally bothers me, but Powell does it so smoothly, it just becomes a fun read. Highly recommended!

    7. Read for the Stan Lee Excelsior Award 2014 - excelsiorawardA lovely idea but didn't quite come off for me. There is something to be said for starting comic books in media res but, actually, I could have done with a bit more background/origin story for this one. The characters felt a little underdeveloped when, in fact, they are all very interesting and I would have enjoyed learning a bit more about them. Maybe this will be corrected in later volumes.

    8. So, if Tim Burton had made 'Monsters vs Aliens' it would have been a lot like this story.A witch, a friendly ghost, a guy that's kind of like Doc Savage in a skeleton suit and a teen girl with pyrotechnic powers and a devil costume protect a small town that tends to attract all kinds of monsters and menaces.Fun mix of pulp adventure and Halloween cartoon. Hope this made enough money to do a sequel or, even better, somebody buys the movie/animated series rights.

    9. All Hallows' Eve is without a doubt my favorite holiday of the year. I love its pagan roots but I also love how corny and gay it's become. And now someone has turned it into a superhero holiday. Watch out tricksters, the Halloween Legion knows where you live. Full review here: superheronovels/2012/04/01

    10. There's nothing really to recommend this generic superteam story with inconsistent art, but the ghost is cute and it's kind of neat how the witch becomes pretty when she loses her power and it is able to keep the momentum and action in high gear, though at the expense of any depth or staying power.Read in the Bronx.

    11. The adventures of the Halloween Legion continues! This time, in comic book form. The town of Woodland is under attack. This time from by goblins from space! It's up to the Halloween Legion to save the town. A beautifully drawn and entertaining adventure.

    12. A cool concept, and one that shows promise, but feels a bit half-formed. Seems like it needs a full series to really get going rather than a one-off trade paperback.

    13. An absolutely amazing read of epic proportions!! Such an original story! I've never read anything like it!!!! Bravo!!!!
