A unique calendar and art portfolio for those who love Halloween, marking time from October to October.



If you’ve ever had those post-Halloween blues on November 1st or find yourself wishing to keep the holiday in your heart year-round, then perhaps you’re already looking at the year in a unique way.

Nakatomi is proud to present Dan Brereton’s Nocturnals: October Epoch,  a  unique calendar, beginning in the month of October 2022,  ending 10/31/2023 ( with a bonus  two months added to complete 2023)!

Comics creator Dan Brereton  introduced The Nocturnals in 1994 with the unique vision for a saga combining a love of Gothic Horror, Crime Fiction and Sci-Fi with an equal love for Halloween.  An adventure series ensued, tinged with an autumnal feel with roots deep in classic pulp yarns, and the added joy of trick-or-treating.

Our Kickstarter project seeks to fund a unique, high-quality calendar,  an artisan edition portfolio of high-end prints-and much more- for the adventurous Halloween spirit in you!
