R.L. Stine continues to scare children with his work thanks to BOOM! Studios. The publisher has announced Welcome to Beast Island, the next in the Just Beyond series of middle grade graphic novels written by Stine, illustrated by Kelly & Nichole Matthews and lettered by Mike Fiorentino, set for release in 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?

“Swamp monsters are horrifying to me. They rise up from the murky depths, bringing nothing but terror. With this story, I hope readers will feel like they are watching one of those timeless old-fashioned horror movies that make everyone shudder and scream,” said author R.L. Stine. 

“R.L. Stine and Kelly & Nichole Matthews have already taken us Just Beyond with a twisted trip to a sinister school, and a camping trip turned ‘trying to survive alien body snatching.’ Now they’re leading the way to the deepest, darkest island swamp filled with beastly, unimaginable new horrors,” said Bryce Carlson, VP, Editorial & Creative Strategy, BOOM! Studios.“If readers think the first two books were scary, they are not prepared for what lies ahead in Welcome to Beast Island.”

Just Beyond: Welcome to Beast Island features a cover by Totino Tedesco. It's set for release in October 2020.
