The beloved Goosebumps Series by R.L. Stein is getting it’s own Comic Book series! The first issue is slated to be released this October, just in time for everyone’s favorite holiday Halloween.
Here’s a look at the cover art for the first Issue. (Now, if only the illustrator for Scary Stories to tell in the dark, Stephen Gammel, were to be chosen to illustrate! That’d be the cherry!)
We all remember checking out these books from our nearest library, or buying them from book fairs and reading them to either ourselves at night or with friends for a good, humble scare. (Some of my favorites are The Haunted mask, Night of the Living Dummy and Say Cheese and Die.) Now, IDW is publishing the comic book. Though, R.L. Stein will not be writing for the comic books he looks back at his first introduction to thrill from reading Comics Tales form the crypt and The Vault Horror and is stated as saying, “Now, Many years later, I have the thrill of seeing my stories and characters come to life in their own comic book series.” They will be written by Jeremy Lambert and Illustrated by Chris Fenoglio. The first issue is set to be release on Oct. 25th, 2017
I’ll be heading to my local comic book shop, how about you?
