Cullen Bunn to Carve Out a New ‘Pumpkinhead’ Comic

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.”

Bunn also went on to say, As a longtime fan of horror, I hold this movie in high regard, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to be contributing to the backwoods mythos of Haggis and Bunt Wallace and the Demon of Vengeance his own self.”

Based on the 1988 Stan Winston classic film, Pumpkinhead remains a cult horror favorite to this day.  While no artist has been announced for the project yet, the teaser image is from Kelley Jones (see below).

Horror comic fiends can expect to see Cullen Bunn’s Pumpkinhead adaptation hit the streets in February 2018.
