James Tynion IV & Rian Sygh Return with Tricks, Treats & Theater in October 2018
BOOM! Studios today unveiled a first look at THE BACKSTAGERS HALLOWEEN INTERMISSION #1, a new special in October 2018 from series creators James Tynion IV and Rian Sygh, along with special guests Sam Johns (The Backstagers: Valentine’s Intermission), Shan Murphy (Bouquet), Abby Howard (Junior Scientist Power Hour), and Savanna Ganucheau (Bloom).
With the days getting shorter and the nights getting spookier, the Backstagers are back for the Halloween season with all-new tales of terrors and creepy creatures. When Sasha accidentally falls asleep backstage, he ends up locked in the theater overnight! What lurks in the shadows, what terrors will he discover, and what the heck are the stage managers chanting? With back-up stories spotlighting your favorite Backstagers, this spine-tingling tale of the stage will leave you with goosebumps you can see from the back row!
THE BACKSTAGERS HALLOWEEN INTERMISSION #1 features a main cover by Sygh and a variant cover by Veronica Fish (SLAM!).
“Tricks and treats are nice, but isn’t candy tastier when eaten with theater pals on the spookiest day of the year?” said Shannon Watters, Senior Editor, BOOM!
