About this item
It's Halloween night, and it's up to Scary Godmother to show one little girl just how much fun spooky can be! Meet Hannah Marie, who, with the help of Scary Godmother, stands up to her mean-spirited cousin Jimmy and her fear of monsters on her first Halloween adventure with the big kids. Later, Hannah joins forces with Orson, the vampire boy, to unravel a mystery near and dear to their hearts. Some of Scary Godmother's closest (and most frightful) pals get in on the fun too, including Bug-A-Boo, the Boozle, and Skully Pettibone.• Four of Thompson's Eisner Award-winning, fully painted children's books are collected here, in their entirety, for the first time (Scary Godmother,The Revenge of Jimmy, The Mystery Date, and The Boo Flu). This deluxe edition also features some of the earliest concept designs for this haunting and imaginative series.• Thompson's Scary Godmother series resulted in a successful stage show and two animated specials shown on Cartoon Network,Scary Godmother: Halloween Spooktakular and Scary Godmother: The Revenge of Jimmy.• "Jill Thompson's Scary Godmother is another of this comics maestro's knockout punches. Thompson delivers a series that shrugs off the censors like the dead weight they are and writes and draws directly at readers of all ages, all experience. Her work is always a delight, and much more: her craft, her precision, her delicious whimsy, all serve as a goad to the rest of us cartoonists to have as much fun as she's obviously enjoying, and to work our butts off as hard as she does. She only makes it look easy. That's the sign of a master."—Frank Miller• "A beautiful and ambitious piece of work."—Alex Ross• Eisner Award-winning series!
While trick-or-treating on Halloween night, Hannah Marie meets her Scary Godmother and a host of creepy creatures who make her welcome on the Fright Side on later Halloweens as well.

A graphic novel for even the youngest trick or treaters. Jill Thompson is brilliant! This book, and the tv specials based on it, is, in my opinion, as integral to Halloween as a Charlie Brown special...and twice as charming! The book itself is beautifully constructed and rather large, so it's best k...see moreof the reviewer's review
