DC Comics Happy Halloween Reading List Announced!

DC Comics announced their Halloween reading list for spooky season! I’ll admit, I haven’t read a graphic novel yet. But that is going to change this month. These have piqued my interest! Let’s get right to it and see what DC Comics has to offer this year!

This October, DC has horror fans covered with a spooky selection of new comic books and classic stories meant to thrill and chill readers.

In October, fans will be treated to exciting new stories including two tales from the new DC Horror imprint: the conclusion of the terrifying series, The Conjuring: The Lover, and the first issue of the hilarious yet horrifying Soul Plumber series from the Last Podcast on the Left Team, in addition to a new noir tale in Batman: The Long Halloween Special.

New from DC Horror, it’s Soul Plumber #1 From Marcus Parks, Henry Zebrowski and Ben Kissel, the hosts of The Last Podcast on the Left, with gorgeous  creepy art by John McCrea.

This six-issue series that dives deep into the sewers of the human soul—and dredges up some demons. Edgar Wiggins, a disgraced former seminary student, is desperate to find a way to answer what he believes is his higher calling. He thinks he’s found it in a seminar hosted in a hotel conference room by the Soul Plumbers, who have a machine that could be the secret to delivering souls from Satan. Edgar’s too broke to buy in, but that’s not enough to stop this true devotee: he steals the blueprints and builds a pirated version with what components he can afford on his gas station attendant salary. Then he goes after a demon, misses… and ends up pulling out something much worse.

The first issue of this new horror-comedy series is available October 5th.

And more horror awaits in the DC Universe, with two new titles hitting shelves on October 21.

A quarter century has passed since the release of the Eisner Award winning Batman: The Long Halloween Special from writer Jeph Loeb and artist Tim Sale. A classic of the Bat-canon, Loeb and Sale return to continue their story and show that some secrets never stay buried in Batman: The Long Halloween Special with a mystery that could destroy Batman, Commissioner Gordon, Two-Face, and…well, that would be telling, wouldn’t it? Releasing just in time for Halloween, Batman: The Long Halloween Special #1 will be available on October 26.

Fans can also enjoy the full, original 13-issue limited series of Batman: The Long Halloween Special currently available on DC Universe Infinite.

And of course, DC Horror, DC’s new spine-tingling 17+ imprint, is here with the chills and thrills.

DC Horror Presents: The Conjuring: The Lover #5the last issue of the mini-series prequel to The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It will hit shelves on October 5th, with a gut-punch finish from writers David L. Johnson-McGoldrick and Rex Ogle, with art from Garry Brown and covers by Bill Sienkiewicz.

Something terrifying has been happening to Jessica. She’s returned to her freshman year of college after winter break, bringing with her the anxieties of last semester’s poor grades, the awkwardness of facing a boy she wishes she’d never slept with, and an undeniably unnerving feeling of being watched. She soon comes to realize that something evil made her its target, driving her down into a spiral of paranoia and isolation, centered around a terrifying act of violence she can’t remember.

The must-read series includes back-ups diving into the Warrens’ Haunted Artifact room, expanding The Conjuring universe for fans.

This is just a taste of what DC Comics is offering this season.

I definitely will be looking for Soul Plumber. Will you be checking out any of them? Let us know in the comments! Stay tuned to PopHorror for all your news, reviews and much more!
