Toss your jack-o’-lanterns in the trunk and buckle up, because we’re going for a rowdy road trip this Halloween, and it's not just any old highway odyssey.

The first issue of Spell on Wheels debuts today from Dark Horse Comics, conjured from the creative minds of writer Kate Leth (Patsy Walker, A.K.A. Hellcat), artist Megan Levens (Buffy Season 10) and colorist Marissa Louise (Semiautomagic).  It's a spellcasting road trip unlike any other, because this one is all about a trio of wily witches. And they’re not just tooling around for fun, they're in hot pursuit of someone who was crazy enough to break in to their home and steal some of their precious witchy stuff!

Here's the official cover, followed by Dark Horse's solicitation for the debut title:


Kate Leth and Megan Levens team up for a magical new series!

Three young witches are robbed of their magical items, and they’ll have to hit the road to track down the mysterious thief before he does any damage to—or with—their possessions.

Supernatural meets Buffy and The Craft!

Who dared enter into their house? What did they steal? And where are they going? You’ll have to read the comic to find out the answer to those enticing questions, starting with some preview pages of the first issue below!

I can't wait to read this book. It has a top-notch creative team, a great concept, and looks like a perfect Halloween read by the flickering glow of a freshly carved pumpkin. As always, let us know what you think about the comic -- or your spookiest road trip -- in the comments below.
