Finch and his sister, Moochie, are all ready for Halloween, and they look adorable. Finch is dressed as a zombie, while Moochie is the Tooth Fairy. By the time we realize that Moochie is stealing teeth from a house full of dead bodies, and Finch knows more about zombies than any child has a right to, we've already been drawn into their cute but gruesome world. Giffen (Formerly Known as the Justice League) and Roman (The Lonely Tombstone) have concocted a black comedy that reads as if Quentin Tarantino and Tim Burton had collaborated on a Halloween heist story. As the story progresses, a mysterious kid dressed as a devil who might just be one, razor blades in apples, a boy named Mr. Kitty with a breast fetish, a dead dog, a missing bra and much more mix together for a lively and inventive tale. Giffen's darkly humored script draws laughs from such things as evisceration while capturing the childlike glee at dressing up and walking by a scary graveyard. He also leaves plenty of mysteries for the next two volumes to solve. Cocreator Roman's art is occasionally too detailed for the small pages, but he excels at unique character designs and macabre details. Full of ghoulish tricks, I Luv Halloween is a seasonal treat that the not easily offended will thoroughly enjoy. (Oct.) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
KLIATT
This horror-comedy manga follows the exploits of a group of trick-or-treaters on Halloween night. We soon learn that there's something wrong with these youngsters—the little girl in the Tooth Fairy outfit keeps pliers handy to yank out teeth; the boy in the Skull Mask gives a cop an apple stuffed with razor blades; and when the kid in the Cat Costume sees Mrs. Jablonski's nips, his head explodes. I Luv Halloween is pretty tasteless. There's lots of gore, and the level of humor we're talking about is of the dead-baby-joke type. If you have a large horror section, this may be worth a shot. I'm sure that many teens would find this manga hysterical; however, I'm not sure any of them would be caught dead in a library. Contains violence, extreme gore, vulgarity, and semi-nudity (the outline of Mrs. Jablonski's nips). For older readers only. You've been warned. KLIATT Codes: SA—Recommended for senior high school students, advanced students, and adults. 2005, Tokyopop, 192p. illus., Ages 15 to adult.

The art style reminds me of Invader Zim. This was a dark, twisted, creepy, sick and just very random book.
