Still wishing he got a figure:

From The Nocturnals: Troll Bridge, story and art by Dan Brereton; with art from Stephen Destefano, Kieron Dwyer, Steve Purcell, Stan Sakai, Adam Warren, Jill Thompson, and more, including the page above from Bruce Timm.

Halloween Girl and the Gunwitch seemed to steal the Nocturnals' book away from the rest of the cast; and this issue is mainly them: less than an hour after sunset on Halloween, young Eve has hit every house in town for candy. Fishing on a bridge and grumping, she meets a troll, who asks Eve to watch his treasure while he goes for burgers; and while pawing through it, she finds the Devil Lantern. Who offers, in gratitude, a wish...

I remember seeing it in ToyFare, but can't remember what company they were trying to go through for Doc Horror and Gunwitch figures. Still a shame they fell through, they're great designs.

Yeah, you got a point with these characters. Even if you weren't familiar with them, the toy versions based off either or both Brereton and Timm art would be pretty damn cool.

So speaking of Halloween, what are you doing? Trick-or-treating w/the kids?
