Once a month, when the full moon rises, it’s time for the young son of a barber to get to work. His customers are mostly regulars, but they are a very unusual bunch.

He’ll need more than just scissors to tackle the monstrous task ahead–some rotting tonic, horn polish, and stink wax should do the trick. Being a midnight barber isn’t easy, but even monsters need haircuts!
