BLOODSHOT #1 SCALES THE SEPTEMBER SALES CHART10/22/19 @ 6:10 pm EST
BOOM! Studios today announced JUST BEYOND: THE HORROR AT HAPPY LANDINGS
, a brand new graphic novel in the highly anticipated 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 featuring a cover by Julian Totino Tedesco (Life of Captain Marvel
), in stores May 2020. This new original graphic novel takes readers to the supposedly serene camping grounds of the forest preserve at Happy Landings where things take a decidedly terrifying turn when the Walden family encounters a pair of body-snatching aliens.
ENJOY YOUR VISIT TO HAPPY LANDINGS!
Family camping trips are supposed to be fun, but for the Walden family, they’re an absolute nightmare! After a creepy, unidentified bird attacks their mom in the forest, Parker and Annie find themselves face to face with two strange creatures that suddenly enter the kids’ brains and take control of their bodies. Can Parker and Annie break loose of this horrific control and convince their family of what’s happening, or will the creatures take over their lives for good?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.
“I'm not an outdoors person. When I'm in the woods or out in the country, I think of all the creatures who live there, and I instantly begin to think of horrifying encounters.” said writer R.L. Stine. “This story goes JUST BEYOND
my normal imagining: What if you were camping out--and you were invaded by creatures from another planet?”
Kelly and Nichole Matthews are twin sisters from Seattle who work as freelance comic book artists and illustrators. They were the artists on Jim Henson’s Dark Crystal: Power of the Dark Crystal, Toil and Trouble,
and Pandora’s Legacy
from BOOM! Studios. They currently have an original webcomic, Maskless
, available on Hiveworks.
“"It's exciting to return to the world of Just Beyond
with a new, out-of-this-world experience.” said artists Kelly & Nichole Matthews. “We hope you enjoy the Horror at Happy Landings!”

VAULT ANNOUNCES 'VAGRANT QUEEN: A PLANET CALLED DOOM' SERIES10/22/19 @ 5:55 pm EST
It's an amazing time to be a Bloodshot fan, isn't it?
As the thrilling trailer for Vin Diesel's Bloodshot introduces the world to the stellar superhero, Valiant Entertainment is incredibly proud to announce that BLOODSHOT #1 made the top 40 comics in September! The action-packed debut issue earned the 38th spot and is the only comic from a non-premier publisher to make the top 50 sales in September.
This achievement would not have been possible without Valiant's phenomenal retailer partners, the incredibly passionate Valiant fans, coverage from the hardworking comics press, and, of course, the brilliant creators behind BLOODSHOT #1: Writer Tim Seeley, artist Brett Booth, colorist Andrew Dalhouse, inker Adelso Corona, letterer Dave Sharpe, and cover artists Declan Shalvey, Dave Johnson, Hannah Templer, Jonboy Meyers, and Tim Sale with Brennan Wagner. None of this would be possible without the supersoldier's spectacular co-creators: Kevin VanHook, Don Perlin and Bob Layton.
The explosive BLOODSHOT #2 goes on sale October 30th.

Vault Comics is thrilled to announce VAGRANT QUEEN: A PLANET CALLED DOOM, a brand new VAGRANT QUEEN mini-series that will hit store shelves in January 2020. MARVEL TV TOPPER JEPH LOEB TO EXIT10/22/19 @ 5:49 pm EST
Written by Eisner and GLAAD award-nominated Mags Visaggio, drawn by Jason Smith, colored by Harry Saxon, lettered by Zakk Samm, and designed by Tim Daniel, VAGRANT QUEEN: A PLANET CALLED DOOM picks up where the first series concluded; however, it serves as a perfect jumping on point for new readers who want to hop on board this epic sci-fi journey.
VAGRANT QUEEN is the story of former child queen Elida who was driven from her throne at age ten and forced to wander the galaxy, evading the revolutionary forces that wanted her dead. When an old frenemy claims to know the whereabouts of Elida’s long-lost mother, she is forced to return to her former kingdom and stage a rescue.
In 2020, VAGRANT QUEEN will debut as a TV show from SYFY, produced by Blue Ice Pictures, staring Adriyan Rae, Tom Rozon and Paul du Toit. The TV show was created and developed by Jem Garrard, and based on the VAGRANT QUEEN comic by Visaggio and Smith.
VAGRANT QUEEN: A PLANET CALLED DOOM #1 hits stores in January 2020, and will have a B cover variant drawn by Nathan Gooden and Tim Daniel.

THR'BLACK LIGHTNING': "THE BOOK OF OCCUPATION: CHAPTER FOUR" PROMO10/22/19 @ 5:43 pm EST
reports that Marvel Television head Jeph Loeb is out at the comic book powerhouse after a nearly decade-long run.
The site reports Loeb has been working on a transition plan to exit the company and is expected to formally announce his departure by Thanksgiving. THR notes that Loeb — who steered Marvel into live-action scripted TV originals with ABC's Agents of SHIELD
— had been prepping to leave well before the Oct. 15 news that Kevin Feige had been elevated to Marvel's chief creative officer.
Marvel declined to comment.
With his promotion, Feige — who has overseen Marvel's multibillion-dollar box office dominance — now oversees the creative direction of the company's content creation, including publishing, film, TV and animation. As part of the consolidation, Loeb's Marvel TV and the animation-focused Marvel Family Entertainment have also moved under Feige's Marvel Studios banner. That officially knocks down the wall that had existed between Marvel's film and TV units.
