Oni Press and Double Fine have announced that Costume Quest: Invasion Of The Candy Snatchers — a comic book based on the Costume Quest games — will be released this October. Which, not coincidentally, happens to be when the second game, Costume Quest 2, is also coming out.
Costume Quest: Invasion Of The Candy Snatchers is being made by Zac Gorman, who does the video game comic Magic Game Time, and will be published by Oni as a “lush, deluxe, oversized hardcover.”
In the announcement, it says that “[Costume Quest:] Invasion Of The Candy Snatchers tells the story of Klem, a misunderstood misfit member of the menacing Grubbins from the first game. While his fellow Grubbins live to snatch trick-or-treaters from our world, Klem is an adorable outcast who only cares about one thing: CANDY! Will Klem be able to make his way amongst the Grubbins while staying true to his sugar-loving soul? There’s only one way to find out!”
