IDW Publishing has announced a new entry in the Goosebumps series today with an upcoming comic called Goosebumps: Secrets of the Swamp. The five-issue series will be written by New York Times bestselling author Marieke Nijkamp and will feature artwork by Yasmin Flores Montanez.
Secrets of the Swamp introduces Blake, a twelve-year-old girl who is shipped away to her weird aunt’s home in Fever Swamp for the summer. Expecting her weeks to be filled with video games, mosquito bites, and a whole lot of nothing, she instead finds herself in a spooky turf war between wolf hunters and werewolves. With monsters on both sides, it’s up to Blake to use all of her gaming skills to escape alive.
“I have fond memories of Goosebumps terrifying me as a kid, and I’m thrilled to get to play around in Fever Swamp now. Secret is a story all about finding your place in a new town, figuring out who your friends are, and dealing with the deadly monsters that lurk in the shadows. With Yasmin bringing the characters to life in such a wonderful way, I hope you’ll get caught in its snare too. Of course, in Fever Swamp, all secrets have sharp teeth, so best be careful you don’t get bitten,” says Nijkamp.
Set to debut in September, the first issue of the series will be available with multiple cover variants. Stay tuned to Horror News Network for more on the Goosebumps: Secrets of the Swamp comic book.
