Jill Thompson’s Scary Godnmother has become something of a Halloween classic, with two animated specials that are still shown on Caqrtoon Network, and a DVD. However, the original Eisner Award winning graphic novels have long been out of print — a series of graphic novels and several stand alone comics starting in 1998 — as they were published by long gone Sirius.
Luckily, Dark Horse is coming to rectify this sad omission with a collection coming this October — just in time for Halloween. The 192-page hardcover collection will reprint Scary Godmother, The Revenge of Jimmy, The Mystery Date and The Boo Flu from the original comics, and Thompson will provide a new cover.
