Goosebumps Author R. L. Stine Writing Marvel's New Man-Thing Comic Series
Thor: Ragnarok movie news, trailers and cast

Thor: Ragnarok November 3rd, 2017

You may know him as the author of the 400+ million selling Goosebumps series and as the author of the 80+ million selling Fear Street series, but R. L. Stine has now made his first foray into the world of comic books with a new five issue mini-series focusing on Marvel's infamous swamp monster, Man-Thing.

German Peralta will provide the artwork for Stine's series, which finds the former scientist-turned-swamp monster finally recovers his ability to speak and sets out the leave the swamp and start a new life as a Hollywood celebrity. But because this is the Marvel Universe, thing's don't go according to plan, and soon Man-Thing finds himself having to stop an ancient danger that threatens all of humanity.

Man-Thing first appeared in Savage Tales #1 back in 1971, before becoming a staple of the Marvel Universe and showing up in other series including Marvel Team-Up, The Defenders, The Punisher, X-Men and Spider-Man. He was also given his own R-rated live-action film back in 2005 and appeared in last year's animated feature Hulk: Where Monsters Dwell.

You can enjoy some of the covers for R. L. Stine's Man-Thing series below. The first two issues have already been released, so be sure to order them over on ComiXology.

Those covers are amazing!!! Stine's use of Horror combined with Man Thing is a great move.
