Comic books
Between November 2000 and November 2001, Chaos Comics produced three one-shot Halloween comic series, using characters from the film franchise. The three comic books were written by Phil Nutman and were named Halloween, Halloween II: The Blackest Eyes and Halloween III: The Devil's Eyes. The comic books even attempted to bridge continuity between Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers and Halloween H20: 20 Years Later but in doing so made the plot of Halloween: Resurrection (unreleased at the time) impossible.
