Dark Horse to Release a Deluxe Hardcover Edition of Jill Thompson’s Scary Godmother


Dark Horse Comics have announced that they are preparing to release a deluxe hardcover edition of Jill Thompson’s Award winning series of childen’s books, Scary Godmother.

The beautiful looking collection is set to hit stores in October, and will collect all four of the Scary Godmother books: Scary Godmother, Revenge of Jimmy, The Mystery Date, and The Boo Flu.

I’ve already pre-ordered my copy, and at this price, you’d be silly not to pick up a copy! It’s great fun for kids, adults, and monsters of all ages!

Check out the solicitation below:


Jill Thompson (W/A)
On sale Oct 20
FC, 192 pages
HC, 8 3/4″ x 11 1/4″

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 Bugaboo, 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, 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 an animated special shown on Cartoon Network, Scary Godmother: Halloween Spooktacular and Scary Godmother: The Revenge of Jimmy.

“A beautiful and ambitious piece of work . . . “ —Alex Ross

Eisner Award-winning series!
