R.L. Stine comic book Stuff of Nightmares: Red Murder coming in September

R.L. Stine’s Boom Studios comic book series Stuff of Nightmares continues this September with a story called Red Murder

Last year, Goosebumps and Fear Street creator R.L. Stine teamed up with Boom Studios for a four-issue limited comic book series called Stuff of Nightmares: The Monster Makers – and the TPB collection of those issues can be purchased at THIS LINK. This year, Stine and Boom are bringing the horror again with a self-contained comic book called Stuff of Nightmares: Red Murder, which is set to reach store shelves on September 27th. Fangoria got the first look at the covers for Red Murder, and you can check them out at the bottom of this article.

Adam Gorham provided the artwork for Stuff of Nightmares: Red Murder, which has the following synopsis: Comic creator Alex Oxaca has been out of the spotlight for decades, and he’ll wish he’d remained in obscurity soon enough. A real ax murderer, cosplaying as the titular hatchet-wielding killer in his early 2000’s smash hit series, Red Murder, starts chopping down equally real victims at a horror convention!

Gorham provided the following statement: “The works of R.L. Stine and illustrations of Goosebumps cover artist Tim Jacobus formed pillars of my pop culture DNA while growing up in 1990s Canada. Their novels were staples of any school book fair or library and coveted by many fifth graders, myself especially. The Goosebumps television show (filmed in Canada) was appointment viewing for me, and I have fond memories of drawing any spooky thing I could imagine while watching that program. If you told me then that nearly 30 years later, I would be working with the legendary author on a comic book of our own… actually, that is exactly the kind of opportunity I’d have hoped for as a kid, which makes this project all the more exciting.

Editor Sophie Philips-Roberts said, “Stuff of Nightmares is something R.L. Stine and I love to come back to. It is such a vast sandbox to tell stories in, and with Red Murder we found the perfect collaborator in Adam.

The covers that artists Francesco Francavilla and Miguel Mercado created for Stuff of Nightmares: Red Murder can be seen below. There will also be variant covers that were created by Gorham, A.L. Kaplan, Becca Carey, and Reiko Murakami.
