Pumpkinhead: Cullen Bunn Brings the Horror Franchise to Comics

Halloween is just around the corner, but things will get truly frightening when Dynamite Entertainment’s all-new Pumpkinhead comic arrives in early 2018.

Revealed as part of the publishers slate of New York Comic Con announcements, the new series based on the mythology of the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures horror franchise will be scripted by Cullen Bunn. The announcement was accompanied by cover art by comic book horror legend Kelley Jones.

“I watched Pumpkinhead on opening night in a little two-screen movie theater outside Berkeley Mall in Goldsboro, North Carolina,” Bunn said, explaining how deep his love for the franchise runs. “To say it helped cement my love of horror (and, in particular, ‘rural horror’, which I write a lot of these days) would be an understatement. I can recite the poem from memory. I even play the soundtrack while writing my own stories. The pacing, the eeriness of the setting, the interplay of weird light and shadow. These are all elements I hope to capture in the comic. As a longtime fan of horror, I hold this movie in high regard, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to be contributing to the backwoods mythos of Haggis and Bunt Wallace and the Demon of Vengeance his own self.”
