R.L. Stine, the Horror Maestro from your Childhood
You’re not a millennial if you don’t remember RL Stine. Goosebumps. Welcome to Dead House. Night of the Living Mummy. The Curse of Camp Cold Lake. A Night in Terror Tower. All of these are unsung classics from the Maestro of 90s Tween Horror. That scared, mystified and enticed young readers throughout the 90s.
Continuing on in that tradition and, as part of a multi-book deal with BOOM! Studios, RL Stine will be releasing his brand new graphic novel Just Beyond: Welcome to Beast Island – via the KaBOOM! imprint.
RL Stine seeps his claws into the Graphic Novel Medium
The best-selling author of Goosebumps and Fear Street is teaming up with up with artists Kelly and Nichole Matthews (Pandora’s Legacy), letterer Mike Fiorentino and features a stunning cover from Julian Totino Tedesco (Life of Captain Marvel).
Just Beyond follows Karla and her little brother Benny, who accompany their Uncle Bill on a scientific expedition to study unidentified species on the remote island. But after a little “bad luck” they soon discover something terrifying and deadly living in the river swamp… With nowhere to run, will Karla, Benny, and Uncle Bill survive the unimaginable and harrowing horrors of the place aptly nicknamed BEAST ISLAND?
Out in October
“Swamp monsters are horrifying to me. They rise up from the murky depths, bringing nothing but terror. With this story, I hope readers will feel like they are watching one of those timeless old-fashioned horror movies that make everyone shudder and scream,”Author R.L. Stine
