Acclaimed horror author R.L. Stine, perhaps best known for Goosebumps and Fear Street, has a signed a four-book original graphic novel (OGN) deal with BOOM! Studios.
“I'm so lucky to have been able to scare so many generations of kids,” Stine said in a statement. “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,” Bryce Carlson, VP of Editorial & Creative Strategy for BOOM! Studios added. “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…”
Stine's most recent work in the world of comics was Marvel Comics' Man-Thing series, which he worked on with several guest artists, including Daniel Warren Johnson and German Peralta.
The first of Stine's four middle-grade supernatural horror OGNs will be released through BOOM! Studios' KaBOOM! imprint in fall 2019.
