Acclaimed horror writer R.L. Stine teased that his mystery series for Marvel Comics would be revealed “in a few days.” In a twist fitting of a “Goosebumps” final page, the reveal actually came just a day later via the New York Times. Stine is writing a new “Man-Thing” limited series for Marvel Comics.
The horror writer, known for the young adult novel series “Goosebumps,” will make his comic-writing debut with the new “Man-Thing” series. The comic, which will be heavily inspired by the “Tales From the Crypt” comics of the 1950s, will feature covers by Tyler Crook and interior art by German Peralta. True to the 1950s horror anthology style, each issue will also include a short horror story written by Stine and drawn by a guest artist, the first of which is Daniel Warren Johnson.
