31 Days Of Horror 2016 Finds “The Lost Boys #1” On The Wednesday Run

the-lost-boys-1-cover“One thing about living in Santa Carla I never could stomach…all the damned vampires.”

Oh, yeah!

With that one, end-of-film revelation, the 1987’s The Lost Boys cemented itself as a fan favourite, vampire-flavoured, horror-comedy. Grandpa knew the town was rife with the undead – all along! For a fervent fan base, that meant story-line speculation, insinuation and a broadening of in-film lore.

As a teenage kid coming out of that movie, my friends and I would endlessly debate: was Grandpa a vampire? How many other vampire clans were there in Santa Clara? Was David really dead? How many head vampires might there be? Wouldn’t werewolves make for a great sequel?

And therein lay the excitement…sequels!

Today, just in time for Biff Bam Pop’s continuation of 31 Days of Horror, Vertigo Comics releases a sequel miniseries to the film, affectingly and simply titled: The Lost Boys!

 

The Lost Boys: #1

Written by: Tim Seeley

Illustrated by: Scott Godlewski

Published by: Vertigo Comics

 

Sure, there have been two, direct-to-video sequels to the original The Lost Boys, namely: The Lost Boys: The Tribe and The Lost Boys: The Thirst, but there are a lot out there that never saw them – and even more who don’t count them as ever having happened.

The Lost Boys has also seen its world expand into comic books via the publication of the Lost Boys: Reign of Frogs four-issue miniseries via Wildstorm in 2008.

Vertigo’s new series, written by Tim Seeley (Grayson, Nightwing, Hack/Slash) and illustrated by Scott Godlewski (The Dark & Bloody), returns to the main cast that everyone loves: brothers, Michael and Sam, Star, and, of course, the famed vampire-hunting Frog brothers.

This series details a Santa Carla only returning from the vampire-stricken edge it once found itself on. But there’s a new gang of undead in town – and they want their own back!

The Blood Belles have emerged from an undead hole – beautiful, ruthless and blood-sucking, death-breath corpses bent on reclaiming their sister Star back into their night-crawling fold! Only Michael, Sam, the Frog Brothers and the mysterious vamp-hunter known as The Believer can rid the town of this new and evil threat!

Last week saw this Wednesday Run column bring you Deadman: Dark Mansion of Forbidden Love as our 31 Days of Horror pick.

Make the run to your local comic book shop today and continue the October comic book horror show and pick up The Lost Boys #1! This one is sure to have 1980’s action, excitement and thrills on every blood-dripping page!
