The Last Halloween, Book 1 is the story of Mona and her unusual friends, who must work together to defend humanity from countless horrific monstrosities! Perhaps they will succeed, and humanity will prevail as it always has. Or perhaps this will be... The Last Halloween.
The Tale Of The Last Halloween
The Last Halloween had already spent several years being pieced together in Abby Howard's mind before she was tasked with pitching a new comic idea as part of the final round of Strip Search, a reality show for webcartoonists hosted by Penny Arcade. It was not chosen as the winner, but Abby went ahead and started posting it anyway, and thanks to the generosity of her incredible fans, it is going strong to this day.
Abby Howard grew up in North Carolina and has been drawing comics since age 13, spending her summers locked away in her room working on one project or another, convinced this would be the one to get her to the Big Time. She went to McGill University to study Evolutionary Biology, but after being a contestant on the web reality show Strip Search, she was able to follow her dreams of becoming a cartoonist, and ditched all that book learnin'.
She now works full time between The Last Halloween, Junior Scientist Power Hour, and various side projects-- including her two podcasts, The Sistertime Podcast (a show about forgotten children's shows and movies, co-hosted by her sister Maddie) and Scared Yet (a discussion of the horror genre co-hosted by fellow webcartoonist, Kris Straub). She likes cats and doesn't get out much. She has seen every horror movie.
