Finally, at long last, the fancy collected hardcover book of The Last Halloween that y'all (and especially I, Abby Howard, its creator) have always wanted! Even if you have never heard of this fun and good webcomic, you have always wanted this book, deep in your heart.
The Last Halloween: Book 1 will be a 432 page, 11x7.5 inch black and white hardcover tome chock full of not only the pages you may have already read, but extra illustrations and even a bonus comic!
It will be such a beautiful book, and will bring tremendous joy to this poor artist's heart.
Wait, What Are You Talking About
Ah yes, some of you may not be familiar with my awesome webcomic, The Last Halloween. In this tale, each human on Earth has a monster counterpart, hidden away in a shadow dimension that lies nearly parallel to our own. They spend their lives envying humanity and the lives we lead, but are unable to pass into our world due to the constant vigilance of the Phagocyte.
The Phagocyte is tasked with keeping the monsters in the shadows where they belong, but on this particular Halloween, he is...
... otherwise occupied. Thus, the monsters are free to spill over into the world of humans, and all heck breaks loose!
It's up to a ten-year-old girl named Mona and her squadron of strange friends to find the next Phagocyte and set the world straight again--
And though there are monsters aplenty...
... through bravery and perseverance, our small heroes are sure to complete their quest and save humanity from certain destruction!
... Hopefully!! For if they fail, this may very well be.... The Last Halloween.
The Last Halloween started two and a half years ago, when wonderful people backed my first Kickstarter and brought this comic into existence. Now, at the end of Book 1, there are well over 400 pages of beautiful full-bleed black and white lineart just dying to be printed and bound in a book!
And, of course, the entirety of Book 1 is available to read for free online, and I encourage you to do so! I want many people to read my good comic. And, course, not only will the current pages be included in this book, but some lovely special features, such as extra artwork, sketches, and process drawings, as well as a small bonus epilogue comic.
Dang That's Rad, But What Do I Get?
The satisfaction of having helped a creator make her ~dreams~ come true! And also, a great book! And if that still isn't enough, you can pledge a li'l extra to get bookplates, drawings, and even original pages. Check out your options in this nice graphic I have made:

You could own your very own cute little wooded cottage for a mere $575!
Gee whiz, those go quick!~~
Sweet! Anything Else, Though? I'm A Greedy Boy
Well hey, if I get more money than I need, I can spend it on even more stuff for YOU cool guys! For starters, when the project is fully funded, the first update of The Last Halloween: Book 2 will be released online, which I could not be more excited about. But after that, there's even more stuff to be unlocked that'll guarantee the incredible beauty of this book:
So hey! Back my Kickstarter, it seems like a pretty good idea. But if you don't have the money, remember that you can always read the comic anyway! I hope you enjoy it, and have a lovely day <3
Risks and challenges
I have run two successful Kickstarters thus far, one to help launch The Last Halloween and one to release a collected edition of my other comic Junior Scientist Power Hour, and I'm only getting better at it as time goes on! So don't worry, you are safe here with me.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
