IDW Publishing's Goosebumps series have continued the tradition of kid-friendly scares that R.L. Stine started years ago. Those novels got an entire generation interested in horror and now we've got some great comics to keep that going. The publisher has announced the next one, due out in September with Goosebumps: Secrets of the Swamp, a five-issue mini-series written by Marieke Nijkamp, illustrated by Yasmine Flores Montanez, and lettered by Rebecca Nalty.

Secrets of the Swamp follows Blake, a twelve-year-old girl who is shipped away to her weird aunt's place in Fever Swamp for the summer. Instead of weeks filled with video games, mosquito bites, and a whole lot of nothing, she finds herself in a spooky turf war between wolf hunters and werewolves. Surrounded by monsters, Blake must 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.

“I’ve wanted to work with Marieke for a long time, and I’m absolutely thrilled that we’re doing a Goosebumps book together. Secrets of the Swamp captures the same magic of the stories that terrified and delighted me as a kid, and I think everyone’s going to love the book that she, Yasmin, and Rebecca are creating,” says editor Chase Marotz, who is co-editing the book with Elizabeth Brei.

Goosebumps: Secrets of the Swamp #1 will feature a main cover by Bill Underwood and a retailer incentive cover by Clara Meath. It's set for release in September 2020.
