A little bit different for Halloween

The GFT Halloween specials thus far have stayed pretty close to the formula from the early days of GFT. With this issue the Halloween story line takes a different approach and instead of relying on some spooky stories instead just puts three of the main heroes from the GFT Universe together for some heroics. Sela, Britney and Robyn are unwittingly led to a Halloween party but then soon find themselves trapped in a haunted house in another realm. It starts off a bit hokey, but the appearance of so many familiar faces makes a fun guessing game out of the story. Eventually the real villain is identified, but it is an unexpected one after all the new faces. At times this feels a little hackneyed and thrown together, but the end product is smart enough.

@wildvine: It was ok :) I stopped reading during the Unleashed storyline as I wanted to read it all at once. So I am several months behind on GFT. This is one of the first that I have read in a while
