Some very exciting news was released by Marvel concerning a new comic. It appears that Goosebumps author R.L. Stine will be joining Marvel to write an all new Man-Thing comic. That's right! I loved R.L. Stine's books when I was younger so it is really exciting to see him teaming up with Marvel.
"“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.""However, after realizing that he was not the greatest artist he decided to just stick to writing. While writing the new Man-Thing comics, Stine was influenced by classic horror comics of the 1950s that he hi,self was a big fan of like Tales From the Crypt.
Stine was offered several characters to choose from but his love of swamp monsters persuaded him to choose Man-Thing. Stine also come TED on how he is going to be bringing some humor to the stories as well.
"“I’m going to do a lot of action and a lot of great violence and make it creepy, but I’m going to make it funny at the same time. It’s what I try to do in my books.”"Besides the humor fans of the character should be aware that there is one other notable change coming their way. The first story has Man-Thing heading to California and trying to figure out why he is not starring in a movie. Throughout this story, Man-Thing will be talking which is new for the usually mute character.
"“He can talk and he’s very sarcastic.”"Something very cool that was reveales is that every issue of the comic will include a short horror story that was written by R.L. Stine.
Are you excited for the return of Man-Thing? Are you excited to see what horror author R.L. Stine brings to the book and character?
