Halloween is the perfect time to read spooky reads, one of the reasons this is one of my favorite times of the year. But, are you ready to read creepy reads…in comic book format? Reading a haunting story through pictures can make the story more compelling and exciting for a book lover looking for a good Halloween read. And these following comics will definitely keep you reading into the night. Read them…if you dare…
Besides the scary costumes and huge amounts of candy, Halloween is not complete without curling up and reading a spooky story. And you can’t go wrong with these selections, especially since they are free. Enjoy a good scare with these haunting classics:
The Legend of Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving

“For a moment she remained trembling and reeling to and fro upon the threshold, then, with a low moaning cry, fell heavily inward upon the person of her brother, and in her violent and now final death-agonies, bore him to the floor a corpse, and a victim to the terrors he had anticipated.”
—Edgar Allan Poe, The Fall of the House of Usher
