Feats your eyes on the image gallery below for a “first look” at what awaits readers in Just Beyond: The Scare School!
In Just Beyond: The Scare School, the first original graphic novel in the series, something’s not quite right as we meet three 12-year-olds in strangely old-fashioned clothing creeping through the halls of Scare Middle School and trying to blend in with the present-day students while evading a menacing cyborg creature, the Drogg. Where did they come from? And why is this scary mechanical monster hunting them down? Thrust into the middle of this terrifying mystery are three modern day students, Josh, Jess, and Marco, who end up fighting for their lives while trying to escape the very nightmare that the three kids in old-fashioned dress were fleeing from, a school of horrors that exists Just Beyond their very own.
“Middle school is terrifying enough as it is but R.L. Stine takes that fear to a whole new level,” said Bryce Carlson, Vice President, Editorial & Creative Strategy, BOOM! Studios. “I honestly couldn’t imagine a better way to kick off a series of middle grade horror graphic novels. This book is every kid’s nightmare come to life with chilling art by phenomenal illustrators Kelly and Nichole Matthews and a frightening story that only a modern master like Stine could tell.”
