    This is a really cute book that's a load of fun to read. It certainly gives the term "hero" a new meaning. If you're into Halloween, good storytelling, fun artwork, and generally good books, this is a must-read. Read Full Review

    What we have here is a sweet read for all ages. The violence isn't going to be too much for the kiddies and the action and art is cool enough to keep the adults entertained. I never thought we'd need a superhero team to take on supernatural menaces that doesn't contain Ghost Rider, but it looks like we do. By book's end you'll wish The Halloween Legion was an ongoing series. Read Full Review

    Hopefully it's not too early for a Fall graphic novel review. Part of me feels like this is the shelf of a department store lined with Christmas decorations in the summer. Early or not, when The Halloween Legion is released on September 11th, I urge fans of All Hallows Eve of all ages to get it. Read Full Review

    Overall, The Halloween Legion is an unexpectedly fun graphic novel that will remind its readers about why we love the spooky characters we dress up as for Halloween. Well worth checking out. Read Full Review

    Fangoria - Svetlana Fedotov Sep 11, 2013

    Boatwright's art is perfect for THE HALLOWEEN LEGION graphic novel. It has an energetic, cartoony vibe reflecting the subdued "scary" artwork of kids' movies like PARANORMAN and CORALINE"beautiful small town backgrounds with an eternal twilight theme and dotting the work with a signature scratchy ink style and a soft color mix. Unfortunately, the shorter, accompanying tale at the end of the comic "Once upon a Halloween," while still written by Martin Powell, is illustrated by a different artist and suffers for it. An attempt at children's illustration with no regard to traditional form or structure, it does not transfer well into sequential art. Read Full Review
