A wickedly fun comic for horror fans, The October Faction: Supernatural Dreams #2 (IDW Publishing) throws its quirky cast of characters into an action-packed plot. Writer Steve Niles and artist Damien Worm presents a terrifying antagonist in an amazing set of illustrations.
As we previously mentioned, the quiet town of Gristlewood is under attack from the most powerful being it has ever seen. Vivian and Geoff take the lead in fighting the evil. But can they even begin to match its power? Or will this be the end of the October Faction?
Here are 5 reasons why you should get October Faction: Supernatural Dreams #2:

In the first installment of Supernatural Dreams, the Allan family are struggling to adjust to the new status quo. With their father thinking of retiring, Dante and Vivian are next in line to continue their monster hunting business. Either that or get a real 9 to 5 job!
4) A Dysfunctional Undead Family!
Writer Steve Niles puts his antagonist, the mysterious Goatman, in the forefront. The Goatman has hellish power that the Allan family has never seen before. More than just sibling rivalry, Dante and Vivian either they have to accept they can do this job. Or they are in way over their heads!
3) The Artwork!
Artist Damien Worm has such a sketchy and surreal character design for The Goatman. With his black suit, the Goatman looks like a slick hit-man rather than a frightening creature from Hell. In a shocking one-pager, notice how Goatman stands at the center after attacking a nearby church.
2) The Colors!
I love Worm’s use of the purple tones in the climax. Notice how the green stands in the following pages when Vivian and Dante show up to do battle.
1) A Fun First Issue!
