LOS ANGELES, CA (October 9, 2020) – BOOM! Studios today revealed a first look at JUST BEYOND: WELCOME TO BEAST ISLAND, a brand new graphic novel in the highly acclaimed middle grade horror series from R.L. Stine, the award-winning, bestselling author of Goosebumps and Fear Street, artists Kelly & Nichole Matthews (Pandora’s Legacy), and letterer Mike Fiorentino, and featuring a cover by Julian Totino Tedesco (Life of Captain Marvel), in stores October 2020.

Trips to exotic islands can be more exhausting than relaxing sometimes, and on the island of Mala Suerte, they’re a real beast! Karla and her little brother Benny accompany their Uncle Bill on a scientific expedition to study unidentified species on the remote island, but after a little “bad luck” they soon discover something terrifying and deadly living in the river swamp… With nowhere to run, will Karla, Benny, and Uncle Bill survive the unimaginable and harrowing horrors of the place aptly nicknamed BEAST ISLAND?

JUST BEYOND will be published through the company’s award-winning KaBOOM! imprint, marking the first time R.L. Stine has originated new concepts in the comic book medium as part of his multi-book agreement with the publisher. With the release of his debut novel Blind Date in 1981, R.L. Stine established himself as one of the most important voices in horror for a new generation. This was followed up with the release of Fear Street in 1989, which remains the best-selling YA series in history with more than 100 books published thus far, and Goosebumps in 1992, which transformed Stine into a worldwide celebrity. The series was soon adapted as a hit TV series and recently returned as a blockbuster film starring Jack Black in 2015 from Sony/Columbia Pictures, with a sequel hitting theaters October 12, 2018. Stine has continued to create exciting new horror concepts for younger audiences each year, in turn becoming one of the most successful American novelists of all time.

Print copies of JUST BEYOND: WELCOME TO BEAST ISLAND will be available for sale on October 21, 2020 at local comic book shops (use comicshoplocator.com to find the nearest one), on October 27, 2020 at bookstores or at the BOOM! Studios webstore. Digital copies can be purchased from content providers, including comiXology, iBooks, Google Play, and Madefire.
