    Even though I've had Nightdance since last October, I just got around to reading Charlie this past week. Overall, it was a fun story that added a little extra bonus to an already good book. However, I wasn't too into all of the Michael involvement, it just came off as very fan fiction-ish. Had the story just cut off when he killed his family instead of continuing at Smith's Grove, I wouldn't have had any complaints. I did like the whole commentary where Charlie is listening to the grounds keeper telling Loomis about himself.

    The reason for the Michael material is mainly so that it works as a companion piece to 'Nightdance', and reinforces the 'fate as design' themes that run through the comics. There's a flattening of time in the story, so that the relationship between events is spatial.

    Also, Charlie got a 'sense' of evil as a force, and this gives some indication to the abstraction of The Shape - he's had fifteen years to focus and grow.

    A lot of the themes and images covered in Charlie will pay off later. They're not just there to include Michael just for the sake of it (which would be TRULY fan-fic!)

    Just a shame they printed my rough draft!!!

    Oh, you're the writer of it?

    I understand the whole duel similar relationship between Charlie and Michael. However, I think it was enough talking about the building of the cabin that played such a prominent role in Nightdance. With Michael assumely living in the cabin, it also draws comparisons to the cabin being the source of evil.

    However, if what they printed was just a rough draft, maybe it would of seemed more natural instead of having a forced connection at Smith's Grove.

    I take it the Charlie story will come into play with future comics?

    The only thing that was rough draft about it was the hard to read font and some grammar mistakes. The story is still exactly the same.

    Well, it's the story about Charlie Bowles, the murderer that was referred to in the original Halloween, in the graveyard scene. It's the story about him going on a rampage of his own and his premonitions, including a few run-ins with Michael Myers himself. You should really check out the comic, it has this story plus Nightdance which is a masterpiece all its own.
