Just Beyond: Monstrosity | Exclusive Preview

Cover of Just Beyond: Monstrosity

Today we have an exclusive preview of the latest spooky story from the fevered mind of Goosebumps creator R.L. Stine. His new graphic novel, Just Beyond: Monstrosity, is set in an old movie studio, which seems appropriate since Just Beyond is soon to be a show on Disney+. Here’s the executive summary:

Ruthie and Ezra Dillon’s dad and uncle just bought an old Hollywood movie studio. And while the family has plans for reviving it to make scary movies for a modern audience, the monsters hiding in the backlot have other ideas. Ruthie and Ezra are eager to star in their family’s films, but they’ll soon find themselves in a real horror show with Wolfenscreem, the Lagoonatics, and the Wasp-Keeper…who are all ready for their revival with a vengeance! 

In addition to Stine, the creative team for Just Beyond: Monstrosity includes artist Irene Flores (Heavy Vinyl) with additional inks by Lea Caballero, colorist Joana LaFuente, and letterer Mike Fiorentino. The graphic novel will be published by BOOM! Studios in October, but we have a first look at it today. Enjoy!
