Vertigo Comics have just announced details of a brand new LOST BOYS series from writer Tim Seeley (Grayson) and artist Scott Godlewski (The Dark & Bloody).
The series, which will serve as a sequel the cult classic 80s film, returns us to Santa Carla, California as the town tries to recover from its recent shocking, vampire-fuelled events.
However, when a new band of ruthless, stunning, life-sucking nightcrawlers known as the Blood Belles emerge from the aftermath, Michael and Sam Emerson must once again team up with militant vampire hunters Edgar and Allan Frog to do battle with the forces of darkness.
Speaking about the announcement, Seeley told Variety “I saw ‘The Lost Boys’ at a formative time in my life, when a VHS, a VCR and a summer afternoon were a perfect escape into a crazy world of biker vampires with mullets and monster-fighting hippy grandpas.’The Lost Boys’ was one of my entry points into the horror genre, and I’ve been fascinated ever since. Getting the chance to write a sequel to the film, featuring the original characters, and getting to work with Scott, Patricia and Tony is truly a high point in my comic book-making career.”
Godlewski added “I hadn’t revisited the film until after becoming involved with this project and totally understood the fascination and the reason for the devoted cult following. My artistic approach to the series is all about keeping the lighter moments light so that when the blood and guts show up they hit you like a hammer.”
You can feast your eyes on some of Godlweski’s early art for the series, set to hit shelves October 12th, below;
