Praise For…


"Classic Niles, morbid, yet smart and filled with creative new twists on the horror tropes that have burrowed deep down and taken over his brains. Damien's art is a pitch-perfect pairing. Clean and fluid storytelling topped off with a healthy serving of muddy hues, expressive inking, and horrifying ghouls." –Rick Remender, Writer (Black Science, Deadly Class)

"The pages look like relics, the frames like long-lost pictures of a scarier time. Blood-soaked, worn by time and weather, they are as monstrous as the story being told." –Big Comic Page

"Steve Niles isn't just the king of horror in our comic book world, I really think he's the best big-concept guy. I'm in awe of this book. He's done it again." -Mark Millar, Writer (Marvel Knights Spider-Man, Ultimate Fantastic Four, Kingsman: The Secret Service)

"Steve Niles tells a terrific story about the horrors of family, and Damien Worm's artwork is goregous." -Brian K. Vaughan, Writer (Saga, Ex Machina)

"Intelligent, intricate, and downright creepy. In other words, typical Steve Niles." -Max Brooks, Writer (World War Z, The Zombie Survival Guide)

"The perfect book to start the fall. The October Faction by Steve Niles & Damien Worm (is) fantastic." -Matt Fraction, Writer (The Invincible Iron Man)

"Check out my buddy Steve Niles' macabre new series - it's the spirit of Halloween year round!" -Slash, Musician & Songwriter (Guns N' Roses)
