Master of mirthful mayhem, Matt Groening, meets the monsters of rock (Alice Cooper, Gene Simmons, and Rob Zombie) in a heavy metal, Halloween-inspired rock 'n' roll odyssey of head-banging, tongue-wagging, dead-raising fright and frivolity. Ever "Mr. Nice Guy" Pat Boone gets in a "metal mood" with a twisted tale of dastardly demons and righteous redemption. From donut batter to ghoulish splatter, you'll be tricked and treated to a chaotic comic collection chock-full of thunder-clapping hell spawn, chainsaw-toting monkeys, televisions run amuck, bible camp ghost stories, lime-flavored squishee monsters, toilets of the damned, vampire tombs, the evil eye, and a very special tribute to EC Comics, the forebears of witty horror and suspense comic storytelling. It's the Halloween jam of the century that'll blow your mind and rock your soul!

Get your grave on with Matt Groening's gigglishly gruesome and hellaciously hilarious comic collection of Halloween humor.

The great thing about this series of titles, is that there are no restrictions. Alice Cooper went to summer camp with Homer Simpson, who knew! Homer isn't Barts biological father? Plus the artists also took their turn in inking the characters in a different form, but ultimately recognizable. Kudos to all involved.
