Vertigo has announced that, this October they will be putting out a comic sequel to the 1987 cult classic film, The Lost Boys. This new miniseries from Vertigo and Warner Bros. Consumer Products will feature the work of horror veterans writer Tim Seeley (GRAYSON, NIGHTWING, Hack/Slash) and artists Scott Godlewski (THE DARK & BLOODY, Copperhead) and Patricia Mulvihill (THE DARK & BLOODY, HELLBLAZER), with covers by Tony Harris.
Heading back to the town of Santa Carla, California, the haven for the undead was finally returning to “normal” after the events of the film which left the local vampire coven’s leader dead. Now, brothers Michael and Sam Emerson must once again team up with militant vampire hunters Edgar and Allan Frog as a new gang of ruthless vampires known as the Blood Belles emerges to collect Michael’s love interest and their lost sister, Star.
“I saw The Lost Boys at a formative time in my life, when a VHS, a VCR and a summer afternoon were a perfect escape into a crazy world of biker vampires with mullets and monster-fighting hippy grandpas,” explains writer Tim Seeley. “The Lost Boys was one of my entry points into the horror genre, and I’ve been fascinated ever since. Getting the chance to write a sequel to the film, featuring the original characters, and getting to work with Scott, Patricia and Tony is truly a high point in my comic book-making career.”
“I hadn’t revisited the film until after becoming involved with this project and totally understood the fascination and the reason for the devoted cult following,” explains artist Scott Godlewski. “My artistic approach to the series is all about keeping the lighter moments light so that when the blood and guts show up they hit you like a hammer.”
The Lost Boys #1, the new monthly miniseries by Tim Seeley, Scott Godlewski, and Patricia Mulvihill, hits shelves – both online and local – on October 12.
