Press Release

Welcome to another installment of 31 Days of Halloween! This is our chance to set the mood for the spookiest and scariest month of the year as we focus our attention on horror and Halloween fun. For the month of October we’ll be sharing various pieces of underappreciated scary books, comics, movies, and television to help keep you terrified and entertained all the way up to Halloween.

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

Courtesy of BOOM! Studios, AIPT can exclusively reveal a preview for the new supernatural horror series Specs #1, out November 9th. Written by David M. Booher with art by Chris Shehan, colors by Roman Stevens, and letters by Jim Campbell, the series is about a group of misfit teens who mail-order a pair of novelty glasses but get more than they bargained for. It was first announced in August.

So what’s Specs about?

All that high school students Kenny and Ted want is to not feel like outcasts in their small town in Ohio. But their world is turned upside down when the Magic Specs they ordered unlock a world of unforeseen possibilities. . . and consequences. Their fun starts out innocent enough, but when they wish that their bully would disappear, things take a cursed turn, with far darker results than they thought possible…

The variant covers are by Skylar Patridge (Trial of the Amazons), and variant covers by fan-favorite illustrators Kevin Wada (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Chris Shehan (House of Slaughter), and David Talaski (Nightwing). Check those out below!
