Today in a press release from BOOM!, it was announced that Goosebumps creator R.L. Stine will be working with the company to create a new Graphic Novel series.
Titled Just Beyond, the project looks to be in the vein of Mr. Stine’s Goosebumps oeuvre as the stories in the series have children as the protagonists. The series launches September 2019 with the first GN, Just Beyond: The Scare School. It will be released by BOOM! Studios through their KaBOOM! imprint.
The press release provides a summary for the first Graphic Novel: “…three 12-year-olds in strangely old fashioned clothing have appeared in modern times, creeping through the empty halls of Scare Middle School, trying to escape a cyborg creature called a Drogg before they are dragged back to somewhere Just Beyond. Now, three modern day students, Josh, Jess, and Marco, are drawn into this terrifying mystery about why their school doesn’t just feel like the worst place ever—it might literally be the worst place imaginable in this world…or any other!”
