Halloween is Coming
This Friday, you can read a brand-new holiday special on Marvel Unlimited… and naturally, given that its the end of October, the holiday in question is Halloween! The cover of the Holiday Special features a Spider-Man Hallween bucket filled with candy. Do they have Milky Way bars on Earth-616, Marvel Blog True Believers?
The comic is by Ryan North, Tom Reilly, and Chris O’Halloran. You probably know North’s name from his work on The Unbeatable Squirrel-Girl, the more recent Darkhold: Iron Man, or from our conspiracy theories about how he’s the one writing the upcoming Star Trek: Lower Decks comics (Section 31 told us).
It seems like the Holiday Special in question will take the form of a comedic PSA, with one of the panels included in the announcement Tweet featuring Iron Man himself directly addressing the reader about an important topic: Halloween!
But don’t worry, Marvel Blog True Believers: this is a more conventional and intact version of Iron Man, not the melty-monster version from the currently ongoing Darkhold series.
In addition to Iron Man, there is also a depiction of Spider-Man asleep in a recliner after a long night of trick-or-treating (you can tell from his more conventional pumpkin bucket, which is filled with candies).
What other Marvel superheroes will appear in this online comic? Only time will tell, Marvel Blog True Believers! But if you’re trying to kill time while you wait for the arrival, there’s another Halloween comic you can read on Marvel Unlimited in the meantime: 2014’s Hawkeye Vs. Deadpool by Gerry Duggan, Matteo Lolli, Cristiane Peter, and Cory Petit, with main covers by James Harren and Jordie Bellaire.
