Bart Simpson's annual tour de force of tricks and treats turns up a pleasingly putrid and asphxiatingly amusing anthology of Halloween humor. Ty Templeton (Stig's Inferno, Batman: Gotham Adventures, and Justice League Adventures) tells a tale of the Simpsons from beyond the grave, as Grampa accidentally causes the death of his loved ones, and a surprising number of grieving and greedy heirs come to claim the Simpson home. In a tip of the hat to Stephen King and Big Daddy Roth, Scott Shaw! (Captain Carrot and the Final Ark, Sonic the Hedgehog) takes you behind the wheel of a clown car gone mad in "Krustine." Hilary Barta (Creepy, Spongebob Comics) teaches you the ABCs of Halloween, and Jill Thompson (Scary Godmother, Beasts of Burden), and Gail Simone (Birds of Prey, Wonder Woman, Batgirl) deliver a ghastly goody that will leave you deliciously delirious.
