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 Last Halloween, Book 2 follows several groups of survivors as they try to navigate a strange new world full of monsters, humans, and the undead, all trying to make the world a better place in their own ways.


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.


The Creator


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 as a full time cartoonist, producing her two webcomics The Last Halloween and Junior Scientist Power Hour as well as an educational graphic novel series for kids all about ancient life, Earth Before Us. She just finished the third book in the series and will be working on a book of short horror comics, The Crossroads At Midnight, to be released in 2020.

 She likes cats and doesn't get out much. She has seen every horror movie.
