Based on Nickelodeon’s hit horror franchise Are You Afraid of the Dark?, TheWitch’s Wings and Other Terrifying Tales is the first in an all-new horror graphic novel series with three original stories based on Hispanic urban legends and cultural lore from bestselling and award-winning author Tehlor Kay Mejia, which are beautifully and hauntingly brought to life by artists Junyi Wu, Justin and Alexis Hernandez, and Kaylee Rowena.

A new Midnight Society gathers around the campfire to share urban legends, folklores, and all manner of spooky stories. These three terrifying tales feature haunted buses, monstrous creatures, and spine-chilling mysteries guaranteed to have you reaching for the light switch!

In “The Tale of the Witch’s Wings,” a young boy with a habit of bullying meets his match when an ancient witch sets her eyes on him. In “The Tale of the Haunting of Bus #13,” a young girl finds herself potentially trapped on a bus haunted by more than just ghosts! And in “The Tale of the Stray Comet,” two siblings bring home a stray dog that is much more monstrous than they could ever imagine!

Are you afraid of the dark? You will be…
