Dark Horse Comics releases a mystery story about a mystery book called Bedtime Games on its first issue.

Before they made The Boogeyman, then Slenderman, but then there’s this comic where the children find an abandoned house that actually turned into a haunted house on children’s nightmares. Well, it’s much more of a bedtime story, but bedtime games just only want you to believe that there is a monster in the closet or something.

So, where do I begin…. Well the story starts is when the three kids are hanging out together, but then one of them got curious about the mystery tunnel with a mysterious doorway, but somehow he actually kept the key for the doorway from some professor at the school. Have you ever seen a strange doorway and tried to open it in such curiosity? But then again, how come the kids discovered the door before getting the key? It’s a mystery that led you to your worst nightmares, however, the story goes more than watching the movie Friday the 13th where Jason follows you everywhere until he wanted you dead. So basically the story continues to give some glances of a person at night, but something actually appeared in a child’s room, which is making you feel like you’ve experienced playing the Boogeyman jump scare game. But suddenly Mr. Bedtime appeared in his room and who knows what he’ll do next?

Don’t know about you guys, but this story is most likely a horror genre book, which involves The Boogeyman that is actually portrayed by this story where the children hide their darkest secrets and reveal it by holding some note that says “The Nightmare, Mr. Bedtime is here for you.” Would all of this makes any sense when the children saw Mr. Bedtime during the night. Well, anyway, the story is more complex than reading any murder mystery comics, but this time it only takes you back by watching Goosebumps. However, the story about Bedtime Games almost seemed to be intimidating, because all this time, Mr. Bedtime is like the Boogeyman who comes in the room and murders children at night time. The art is slightly giving some details of the characters, specifically Mr. Bedtime, I mean does he seem to be a good guy or not? If you’re expecting to read any other scary stories like this one, then this is for you.
