Stine will team with artists Kelly and Nichole Matthews on “The Scare School,” due out next year.
R.L. Stine’s Goosebumps have already made the jump to comics, but now the creator is going all in with a new line of original graphic novels from BOOM! Studios.
The first Just Beyond OGN, subtitled “The Scare School,” will debut in September 2019 with artwork by Kelly and Nichole Matthews (Pandora’s Legacy) and featuring a cover by Julian Totino Tedesco (Life of Captain Marvel).

Jen Vaughn and Michelle Wong offer a modern take on the classic Goosebumps book ‘Say Cheese and Die!’
IDW announced back in July that they will publish a comic series based on R.L. Stine’s popular Goosebumps books by a rotating series of creators. With the first miniseries kicking off later this month, IDW has announced a second one that will follow in February.

Now all these years later, I have another thrill–seeing my stories and characters come to life in a comic book series of their own.”
