Three of Goosebumps' creepiest creature books ever!*
Now in a cool, new GB Graphix anthology adapted and illustrated by acclaimed comic artists Scott Morse, Greg Ruth, and Gabriel Hernandez.
Creepy creatures are howling, growling, and stalking through the artwork of the first Goosebumps Graphix anthology when three hot, talented comic artists adapt these bestselling Goosebumps books into a cool, new graphic novel format:
SCOTT MORSE, creator of the popular comic, "The Magic Pickle," brings his quirky sense of humor and madcap illustrations to "The Abominable Snowman of Pasadena," where two kids encounter an unlikely monster in sunny California.
Gr 5 UpThese selections from the Goosebumps” series have been abridged and put in a graphic-novel format, and the fast pace and horror elements make them perfect for this format. The black-and-white illustrations for each one are very different but fit each story well. In The Werewolf of Fever Swamp,” the artwork bristles much like the hackles on a werewolf's neck. The smooth, realistic style of The Scarecrow Walks at Midnight” makes the scarecrow chilling and haunting. The bolder, cartoon style of The Abominable Snowman of Pasadena” perfectly fits this more humorous tale. This is a great option for younger readers interested in graphic novels, and the nostalgia is there for the older set.Melissa T. Jenvey, New York Public Library
