Exclusive: The Halloween Kid

I'm super thrilled to feature the U.S. premiere of the trailer for Rhode Montijo's The Halloween Kid Animated Special.  As a huge fan of Rhode's artwork and incredible Haunt, I couldn't be more excited to see his work become part of the Halloween TV Special canon.

From Rhode's Facebook page:
The Halloween Kid Animated Special is about a mysterious masked boy who goes beyond his limits to defend Halloween. The special is being animated by Japan's Sanzigen (Black Rock Shooter, Cyborg 009) which is a part of Ultra Super Pictures, and produced in collaboration with Crooked Smile (David Choe and Good Smile Company). The screenplay is written by my good friend and storyboard artist extraordinaire, Jamie Baker.

The half hour special based on Rhode's successful children's book will be released this fall, and I can't wait.

This is very exciting! When was the last time there was a new Halloween animated show? Decades ago? Man, a Halloween tradition in Montijo's style is too good to be true.
