New Series of Goosebumps Comics Announced Ahead of San Diego Comic-Con
San Diego Comic-Con 2017 is only a matter of days away and while the convention now caters to a variety of media enthusiasts, comics still have a large presence at the convention. The art form is still a big draw for convention goers and comics outside of the superhero stories are perhaps more present than ever. The horror genre is very much included in this camp, such as the recent Man-Thing miniseries by famed author R.L. Stine. Now, Stine’s most popular creation is hitting the shelves again this year with a newly announced series of Goosebumps comics.
The new Goosebumps comics were announced exclusively on The Hollywood Reporter, ahead of San Diego Comic Con, will boast a variety of writers and illustrators from IDW Publishing. Stine himself has approved of the project, saying:
My first reading thrill when I was a kid were the EC horror comics Tales From the Crypt and The Vault of Horror. They introduced me to the excitement of reading. Now all these years later, I have another thrill — seeing my stories and characters come to life in a comic book series of their own. Thanks to my new friends at IDW!”
IDW is beginning the series with a three issue arc titled “Goosebumps: Monsters at Midnight” written by Jeremy Lambert and illustrated by Chris Fenoglio. As the cover art reveals, it will feature the classic villain Slappy the Dummy. The first issue will be available in print and digital retailers on October 25th, 2017.
