& ‘Goosebumps’ Author in October 2022
LOS ANGELES, CA (September 20, 2022) – BOOM! Studios revealed today that STUFF OF NIGHTMARES #1 has sold out at the distributor level before release! This premiere issue of a brand new four-issue limited comic book series from R.L Stine, the legendary author of Fear Street and Goosebumps, who’s back with a chilling new take on iconic creatures from horror legend in his first creator-owned comic book series, with chilling art by A.L. Kaplan (Maw, Jim Henson’s The Storyteller), colors by Roman Titov (Eat the Rich), and letters by Jim Campbell (Black Badge).
In the premiere of Stine’s reanimated reimagining, the monster you encounter isn’t the one you thought it’d be—you might be familiar with the classic tale of a mad scientist hell-bent on creating life, but what these two demented brothers have created is something else entirely! Get ready for a darker, more gruesome, and even more terrifying series for horror fans who are ready to face their fears in … STUFF OF NIGHTMARES!
