R.L. Stine signs multi-book graphic novel agreement with Boom! Studios

Looks like R.L. Stine has just signed a multi-book original graphic novel agreement with the powers that be over at BOOM! Studios. The award-winning, bestselling horror author and creator of GOOSEBUMPS and FEAR STREET will be debuting new stories beginning in 2019. Under this historic agreement, which sees the author bring new concepts to the comic book medium for the first time, Stine will produce a brand new series of four middle-grade supernatural horror original graphic novels for BOOM! Studios. 

R.L. Stine:

I'm so lucky to have been able to scare so many generations of kids. 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.

Bryce Carlson, VP of Editorial & Creative Strategy:

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. 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…

Personally, I'm REALLY looking forward to finding out what these new stories will be. I was a massive fan (and still am) of Stine's GOOSEBUMPS and FEAR STREET novel series - and I even dug the hell out of the recent GOOSEBUMPS film starring Jack Black. Basically, if Stine's name is on it, I'll still give it a go to this day!

The first original graphic novel in this series from R.L. Stine and BOOM! Studios, released through the company’s middle-grade imprint KaBOOM!, will be available everywhere books are sold in Fall 2019.
