Author RL Stine, known for his work on the Goosebumps series and other chilling tales for kids, is making a return to graphic novels, Gizmodo reported. 

In a deal announced earlier this week, Stine, who worked on Man-Thing for Marvel Comics last year, is teaming up with Boom Studios to release a line of four original graphic novels aimed at young teens.

True to form, the graphic novels will focus on supernatural horror, though on what exactly has not been announced. All four issues will be released through Boom’s kid-focused imprint KaBoom, and the first is scheduled to arrive later this year. 

Stine has revealed in the past that he has always been passionate about comics, telling the New York Times that “My first ambition was to be a comic book artist. I started doing these little comic books in the fourth grade: Super Stooge, the dumbest hero on earth.” (sul/wng)
