Author Marieke Nijkamp Delivers Chills And Thrills In A First Look At IDW’s ‘Goosebumps: Secrets Of The Swamp’
by Olly MacNamee
R.L. Stine’s Goosebumps was a ’90s staple for many young readers of that decade. And it’s still going strong today judging by IDW Publishings ongoing comic books based on this fondly-remembered book franchise for middle grade/young adult readers. And next Wednesday sees the latest Goosebump comic book project with the publication of Goosebumps: Secrets of the Swamp; a middle grade graphic novel by New York Times bestselling author Marieke Nijkamp (This Is Where It Ends, Before I Let Go, The Oracle Code) and artist Yasmin Flores Montanez (Marvel Action: Captain Marvel, Tilly).
“Secrets of the Swamp introduces twelve-year-old Blake, an avid gamer who never lets anything—tough opponents, her prosthetic hand, nothing—slow her down. When she’s shipped away to her weird aunt’s home in Fever Swamp, Blake expects a summer of endless boredom…but stumbles upon a spooky turf war between wolf hunters and werewolves instead! With real-life monsters on all sides, she’s about to face danger and fear on a whole new level!”
Check out a first look at this all-new graphic novel below and look out for it on shelves in comic book stores new week. Wednesday May 5th from IDW:
