Today Dynamite Comics announced it will be bringing horror classic Pumpkinhead to the comic world. The series will be penned by one of the hardest working man in comics at the moment, Cullen Bunn, known for his work on fan favorites Harrow County, Regression, Hellheim, and Deadpool. On his website earlier today, Bunn wrote: “I’ll admit, when I heard that Dynamite had acquired the rights to do this book, I immediately contacted them asking to pitch for the series. Good ol’ Pumpkinhead may be my favorite movie monster, and I’ve always had the urge to add my own spin to his story.”

Romero’s friend, and fellow legend, Malcolm McDowell appears in a short video on the page via Generosity. read more read more
