R.L. STINE PARTNERS WITH BOOM! STUDIOS FOR NEW GRAPHIC NOVELS
In speaking to a ton of different horror comics creators on Funny Book Splatter, it’s amazing how an entire generation was influenced by R.L. Stine’s work, primarily in Goosebumps. Now he’s about to terrify an entirely new generation of readers as the author has signed a multi-book original graphic novel deal with BOOM! Studios. He’ll be producing a new series of four middle grade supernatural horror original graphic novels through the publisher’s KaBOOM! imprint, beginning in Fall 2019.
“I'm so lucky to have been able to scare so many generations of kids,” said R.L. Stine. “Now I feel lucky to be going just beyond Goosebumps to a whole new medium of fright and chilling laughs. I'm hoping that BOOM! is the sound of an explosion of fun in a whole new world for me."
“As a lifelong fan of R.L. Stine, I couldn’t be more excited to see him scare a whole new generation with a series of original horror graphic novels at BOOM! Studios,” said Bryce Carlson, VP of Editorial & Creative Strategy. “His work changed my life as a reader and I can’t wait for today’s young readers to share that experience as R.L. Stine takes the graphic novel format and sends everyone just beyond the limits of their imaginations…”
No other specifics have come out just yet. I’m curious as to what artists may be working on these projects. We’ll have more news on this as it comes through.
