LOST BOYS SEQUEL COMIC COMING IN OCTOBER
When you think of classic vampire movies, The Lost Boys is right up there. Maybe not so much that direct-to-DVD sequel. In any case, Vertigo has announced a follow up to the movie, coming to comic shops this October. Written by Tim Seeley, illustrated by Scott Godlewski and Patricia Mulvihill, the book does not contradict anything from the films or the previous comic book mini-series. Seeley also confirmed via Twitter that it's not based on a previous script or film treatment although it does superficially share some elements from the Lost Girls idea. It also takes place not long after the original film. Here's the write-up from the publisher:
Santa Carla, California, is on edge. The eccentric coastal town and haven for the undead was finally returning to “normal” after its last supernatural scuffle left the local vampire coven’s leader dead and gave newcomers Michael and Sam Emerson a housewarming both violent and bizarre. Now the brothers must once again team up with militant vampire hunters Edgar and Allan Frog as a new gang of ruthless, stunning, life-sucking nightcrawlers known as the Blood Belles emerges from the aftermath to collect Michael’s love interest and their lost sister, Star.

"I saw The Lost Boys at a formative time in my life, when a VHS, a VCR and a summer afternoon were a perfect escape into a crazy world of biker vampires with mullets and monster-fighting hippy grandpas,” explains writer Tim Seeley. “The Lost Boys was one of my entry points into the horror genre, and I've been fascinated ever since. Getting the chance to write a sequel to the film, featuring the original characters, and getting to work with Scott, Patricia and Tony is truly a high point in my comic book-making career."
"I hadn’t revisited the film until after becoming involved with this project and totally understood the fascination and the reason for the devoted cult following," explains artist Scott Godlewski. "My artistic approach to the series is all about keeping the lighter moments light so that when the blood and guts show up they hit you like a hammer."
The Lost Boys mini-series will also feature covers by Tony Harris. The first issue is set for release on October 12th, 2016.
