Writer Jen Vaughn and Artist Michelle Wong scare up a new Goosebumps comic series this February
San Diego (October 5, 2017) â€“ IDW Publishing, in association with Scholastic, is releasing the second three-issue arc inÂ R.L Stineâ€™sÂ GoosebumpsÂ comic series. â€œDOWNLOAD AND DIE!â€ is a brand-new self-contained story set in theÂ GoosebumpsÂ universe from the talented duo of writerÂ Jen VaughnÂ (Adventure Time) and artistÂ Michelle WongÂ (Tomboy).
In the tradition of the classic â€œSay Cheese and Die!â€ story, this spiritual successor takes that concept and puts a digital spin on it for the iPhone generation. Todayâ€™s kids will now have to contend with a smartphone app that snaps filtered pictures which depict nightmarish outcomes. In trueÂ GoosebumpsÂ fashion, the danger is real!
“This Goosebumps tale is going to delve into what makes friends tick and what can drive them apart,â€ said Vaughn. â€œWhat’s that saying, ‘you can always make new friends?’ Well, not when people find out what you did to your last ones. Michelle brought my characters to life so well…too well. They laugh, they cry, they dream, and bleed through the power of her lines. I’m terrified to read the comic now.â€
“Creepy stories are my favorite, and Jen is making this one so much fun to work with,â€ said Wong. â€œI love drawing cute characters, and I love drawing monsters – it’s a dream come true.”
â€œDOWNLOAD AND DIE!â€ will follow on the horrifying heels of the highly anticipated debut series,Â Goosebumps: Monsters atÂ Midnight, from writerÂ Jeremy LambertÂ and artistÂ Chris Fenoglio, launching on 10/25, just in time for Halloween!
Comic readers, beware, you’re in for a scare when â€œDOWNLOAD AND DIE!â€ launches in February.
