R.L. Stine terrified children in the '90s with his Goosebumps books. IDW Publishing locked down the Goosebumps comics license last year, so BOOM! Studios went and got the next best thing, Stine himself.
The author has signed a multi-title deal with BOOM! to create four middle grade supernatural horror original graphic novels, with the first set to arrive this Fall.
"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."
Stay tuned for more news on R.L. Stine's "not-Goosebumps" horror comics.
