Vertigo Comics has announced a new Lost Boys comic series that will serve as a sequel to Joel Schumacher’s cult-favorite ’80s horror-comedy.
Hack/Slash creator and Grayson scribe Tim Seeley will write the series, with The Dark & the Bloody’s Scott Godlewski and Patricia Mulvihill on interior art duties, and Tony Moore (Shade) providing covers. The creative team is set to offer a sequel to the original film that delivers all the bloody, big hair fun of the 1987 classic.
“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,” Seeley told Variety. “‘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.”

Santa Carla, California is on edge. The eccentric coastal town and haven for the undead was finally returning to “normal” after its last supernatural scuffle left the local coven’s head vampire dead and gave newcomers Michael and Sam Emerson a housewarming both violent and bizarre. Now the brothers must once again team up with militant vampire hunters Edgar and Allan Frog when a new gang of ruthless, stunning, life-sucking nightcrawlers known as the Blood Belles emerges from the aftermath to collect Michael’s love interest and their lost sister, Star.
Lost Boys #1 hits stands on October 12.
