Grade 10 Up–Four boys–cool Finch, girl-obsessed Mr. Kitty, slovenly Pig Pig, and enigmatic Devil Lad–set out in search of candy one All Hallow's Eve. Along the way, mishaps and misadventures ensue involving revenge on an elderly woman who doles out apples as treats and a bloody pursuit that revolves around a piece of stolen lingerie. What follows is a feeble plot overshadowed by off-color sexual humor and gratuitous violence. At first glance, this book appears to have a Nightmare before Christmas meets South Park feel, though it is clearly not meant for those with a weak stomach. Placing itself in the comedy-horror genre, it offers more gore than laughs and even fewer scares. A stronger buy in this category would be Ted Naifeh's Courtney Crumrin series (Oni Pr.) or Matsuri Akino's Pet Shop of Horrors (Tokyopop). Instead of delivering trick-or-treat fun, I Luv Halloween presents little more than a meager blood-spattered romp.– Jennifer Feigelman, Plattekill Public Library, Modena, NY
