R. L. Stine Is Writing Comics For Marvel


After writing hundreds of horror novels for young adults and kids, R.L. Stine is set to unleash his specific talents on the world of comics. While specific details remain shrouded in mystery, Stine revealed during an Reddit AMA session that he has a series of comics in the works at Marvel Comics.

"I'm writing a series of comic books for Marvel-- my first comics ever," said Stine when asked if he'd ever considered working in the medium. "But I'm not allowed to talk about them yet." Marvel has not yet made an official announcement regarding a project with Stine. Marvel did not comment when reached by CBR.


The 73-year-old writer is most known for his line of "Goosebumps" novels, which originally ran from 1992 to 1997, lasting 62 installments. The line has since been revived and continues today. Stine's work has inspired a number of live-action projects as well, including a television series as well as a 2015 feature film starring Jack Black. In the film, Black played a fictionalized version of Stine; the author himself played a teacher named "Mr. Black." Stine is also known for the teen-oriented "Fear Street" young adult series, which launched in 1989, and the more recent "Mostly Ghostly" novel series.
