Marvel Comics is bringing legendary author R.L. Stine of Goosebumps and Fear Street fame to helm one of Marvel’s most monstrous creations, Man-Thing.
Stine will team up with artist German Peralta to bring to life the new Man-Thing series. It will be colored by Rachelle Rosenberg and Matt Lopes.
“R.L. Stine in the Marvel Universe – that’s an event in and of itself,” says Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso. “And is there a Marvel character more perfectly suited to his sensibilities than the monstrous Man-Thing? Stine and artist German Peralta are spinning a tale full of action, horror, humor and heart – one that’s sure to please R.L. Stine fans, Man-Thing fans, and new fans.”
Attempting to recreate the formula that produced Captain America, biochemist Ted Sallis was transformed into the shambling creature known only as MAN-THING! Now, having recently regained his ability to speak, Man-Thing sets out on a journey to leave the swamps once and for all. But when an ancient and mysterious danger threatens reality, he will have to choose between his new life and the place he once called home!
Each issue of Man-Thing will also feature a unique, bone-chilling horror short written by R.L. Stine and illustrated by a rotating group of artists. Daniel Warren Johnson will illustrate some terror on the high seas in the back-up tale for the first issue.
Man-Thing #1 will feature a cover by Tyler Crook.
