‘Pumpkinhead’ is Set to Make a Return in a New Dynamite Comic Book Series




Are you ready for the return of the legendary Pumpkinhead?

Last year, it was reported that a new film would be going into production in 2017. While we all wait to see if it ever gets the green light, we can look forward to a brand new comic book series based on one of our favourite horror monsters.

Dynamite Entertainment will be releasing their Pumpkinhead comic series in early 2018, which is based on the mythology of the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures horror franchise scripted by Cullen Bunn.

I watched Pumpkinhead on opening night in a little two-screen movie theater outside Berkeley Mall in Goldsboro, North Carolina. To say it helped cement my love of horror (and, in particular, ‘rural horror’, which I write a lot of these days) would be an understatement. I can recite the poem from memory. I even play the soundtrack while writing my own stories. The pacing, the eeriness of the setting, the interplay of weird light and shadow. These are all elements I hope to capture in the comic. As a longtime fan of horror, I hold this movie in high regard, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to be contributing to the backwoods mythos of Haggis and Bunt Wallace and the Demon of Vengeance his own self.
