What is Our Final Halloween?
Our Final Halloween is a horror comic inspired by the likes of HP Lovecraft and John Carpenter. Set in 1984 a group of teens find themselves covered in blood, disorientated, and with no short-term memory. In our first issue the gang started to uncover the horrors of what happened on that fateful Halloween, but despite their best efforts they only just scratched the surface. In Our Final Halloween #2 we're going to go beneath the surface. Deep beneath the surface...
(Below is the Kickstarter video for our PREVIOUS campaign).
After a highly successful first campaign (over 300 backers!) for a digital only copy of the comic, we're looking to Kickstart a print run for issues one and two! And if you backed our first campaign then you can get both comics at a discounted rate.
You've hit your target already?
Yes we have! And thanks to a lot of incredible support we're now on to stretch goals. You can see more details about each of the stretch goals in the updates section. But here's a rough run down.
The FINAL STRETCH GOAL - Samurai Slasher Late Fees - Details HERE - For all backers at £10 and up.
Can you see any of it?
Yes you can. The comic is all finished so as well as being able to show off some completed pages we can also share with you some pull quotes for the issue!
Whereas issue one was a claustrophobic affair, in issue two we get to explore more of the - not so sleepy - village of Hallows' Gate.
What about issue one?
This campaign is designed for new or existing readers - so If you want to see more about our first comic then you can check out our previous campaign here.
What's up with the Kickstarter image? That art looks different to the interior pages.
We've commissioned brand-new wrap-around covers from the incredible Jess Taylor. You can check them out below. We ABSOLUTELY adore them!
What are the pledge levels?
We've tried to create tiers perfect for any budget. Below is a detailed breakdown. If you'd like to know more - or have any suggestions of what else you'd like - then please just let us know.

Our Final Halloween #2 PDF - a digital copy of the comic delivered August.
Digital Extras - Director's Cut, and the Behind the Scenes PDF - This is all bonus content for Our Final Halloween #1. Guest artist pin ups, a horror essay, and an additional alternative cover, as well as a 30+ page digital collection of concept work, character sketches, unused and unfinished artwork, as well as development notes.
Our Final Halloween #1 - the comic itself (a UK format over-sized 38 page comic) delivered in August, with P&P included for the UK. Comes with a PDF copy.
Our Final Halloween #2 - the comic itself (a UK format 28 page comic) delivered in August, with P&P included for the UK. Comes with a PDF copy.

Original sketch - artist MLG will do a five-minute illustration of our newest character Girl the dog (yes, her name is Girl) in the front of issue #2. You can add £10 to get a monster sketch in the front of issue #1 too!
Digital likeness - the class of '84. Get your high school picture (any picture of you) illustrated by MLG, and add your own high school quote to it. This is a digital only reward that will be completed by September (although you will get the rest of your rewards in August). We'll also update our digital copy of the comic and include this in there too!
Cameo - Have your face (or the face of a loved one) illustrated into the next issue of Our Final Halloween! We will need images of you delivered within three weeks of the Kickstarter finishing.
What will you spend the money on if you make your target?
We've already paid our letterer and cover artist out of our own pocket, and both issues have been finished for a little while now, so we're just looking for help to pay for the initial print-run.
What if you backed the last Our Final Halloween campaign?
To thank you for your support we've added a few reward tiers aimed at you. The £6 and £10 tier include both issues at a reduced rate. And if you'd like any of the additional extras:
- You can get the three art prints by adding £10 to the £10 tier.
- To get the original sketch and the prints add £20 to the £10 tier.
- To get the original sketch, the prints and the digital likeness, add £35 to the £10 tier.

Risks and challenges
Obviously things do sometimes come up from time to time, and if they do we'll keep you fully informed, but we are expecting a hassle-free campaign and fulfilment period. Both comics are finished, and now we're just looking for help getting them printed.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
