R.L. Stine Is Writing Marvel Comic Books


Guess who's flying into the Marvel universe? It's R.L. Stine. That's right: the Goosebumps author revealed on Monday that he's penning a series of comics for the company—his very first.

"I’m not allowed to talk about them yet," he said in a Reddit AMA, where he delivered the news. As of this writing, Marvel has yet to make an official announcement.

In the AMA, Stine also revealed that he read mostly comics while growing up, including, Tales from the Crypt, The Vault of Horror and MAD. His favorite author of all time made an entrance into his life fairly early: "When I was nine, I discovered Ray Bradbury. Changed my life."

In 2015, Stine's 62 Goosebumps books, which were published from 1992 to 1997, were put onto the big screen when Jack Black played the author in the Goosebumps movie. And, well, given Marvel's affinity for turning their comics into films, we wouldn't be surprised if Stine got another shot at the silver screen, too. But enough speculation; let's sit patiently for those Stine comics.
