Abby Howard Invites Her Readers to 'The Last Halloween'
Abby Howard's The Last Halloween is a distinctively-drawn webcomic; one that seems childlike, but has this increasing undercurrent of creepy tension and unpredictable weirdness flowing through each extended sequence. Through stark inks and bold panel layouts, Howard is able to convey silliness as powerfully as she can convey real horror, and the result is a singular piece of work that resonates in genuinely unnerving ways. It's certainly found an audience --- having just launched a Kickstarter to bring the first volume of her series to print, Howard has already sailed beyond the initial funding target.
