If you happened to be bobbing around on this planet between the years 1992-1997, then you may remember the Goosebumps series.
Goosebumps was a series of children’s horror fiction novels written by the one and only R.L. Stine depicting everything from possessed dummies, monsters made of green slime, demonic lawn gnomes, haunted masks, and more. They were fun, they were spooky, and they held a pretty important part in defining a generation. But, how could they not? There were sixty-two books released in a span of just five years, along with four seasons of an accompanying series. Goosebumps was everywhere! And everyone watched along, hiding under the covers, ready to be scared! Not to mention that fact that celebrities such as Ryan Gosling, Jack Black, Hayden Christensen, and more starred in leading roles within the Goosebumps world.

Watching Goosebumps was an integral part of growing up for many of us and now, in the ripe year of 2018, while those of us who may have enjoyed the Goosebumps franchise during it’s 1990’s heyday are now fumbling our way through adulthood, an entirely new R.L. Stine series is in the works for an entirely new generation to feast upon, cower from, and devour.
The series is all part of a four-book original graphic novel deal R.L. Stine has just made with BOOM! Studios. When asked about the new deal, Stine was quoted saying:
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.
Oh wow, that statement alone may have just warmed my cold, millennial heart. I can’t wait for this new series, and to see all of the new thrills and haunts R.L. Stine will surely bring about to the world!
The series will be released through BOOM! Studios KaBOOM! imprint in the fall of 2019.
