Pumpkinhead: The Rites of Exorcism was a comic book series published by Dark Horse Comics in 1993. There were only two issues released, and a third issue was intended to include the appearance of a winged version of the Pumpkinhead demon, something not seen in any of the films.

The plot revolves around the town doctor's son named David, who is in love with a woman named Mariah, who was born in the backwoods. David and Mariah plan to run away together, however Mariah was supposed to replace the backwoods witch named Haggis after her death. A "tragic" fate would eventually meet Mariah that connected to a town newcomer named Angus Brenner and a troubled priest named Father Gibbon, which would eventually lead to Pumpkinhead being conjured again.

Geometric Designs released an unpainted model kit of the winged Pumpkinhead that would have appeared in the third issue called "Pumpkinhead: The Metamorphosis".
