Chicago, IL – July 23, 2007 – Compass International Pictures, Inc. and Devil’s Due Publishing, Inc. join forces to launch a bone chilling comic book series based on the original Halloween movie!
With the 30th Anniversary of the Halloween franchise fast approaching, the property has enjoyed a long and healthy success, and Devil’s Due Publishing is proud to be telling the new horrific tales of slasher Michael Myers. “We’ve done a number of horror titles in the past, and I love them all, but there’s something extra special about bringing the original to the comic page,” said Josh Blaylock, president of DDP. “He’s the big daddy of hard-to-kill slashers.”
Compass’ Malek Akkad has been working closely on the new Halloween film to be released in 2008, but despite his busy schedule was personally involved in selecting Devil’s Due for the property’s new comic home. “Devil’s Due has a track record for quality horror comics perfect for Halloween and we are working closely with them, said Akkad. “ It is important to us to
bring a sense of the original Michael Myers film to this series.”
