Acclaimed writer R.L. Stine has been tapped to write a new Man-Thing limited series for Marvel.
The horror writer, known for the young adult series Goosebumps, will pen the new tale, which will be heavily inspired by the Tales From the Crypt comics of the 1950s. Tyler Crook will provide covers and German Peralta will handle the interior art.
Each issue will also include a short story from Stine, each drawn by a guest artist.
Man-Thing first debuted in 1971, and Stine's version will feature a very unique ability.
“He can talk and he’s very sarcastic,” said Stine. “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."
Sounds really good to us!
In the first story from the 73-year-old Stine, Man-Thing heads to Burbank, California wondering why he is not starring in a major motion picture.
Come to think of it, we're wondering the same thing!
Look for Man-Thing #1 to arrive on newsstands in March of 2017.
