Let's Talk: The Lost Boys Sequel

Hello, all!

Better call the Frog Brothers because it seems like Santa Carla is once again becoming a haven for the undead. Thanks to Vertigo Comics, we're thrown back into the 80's cult favorite, The Lost Boys, in all its bloody, big-haired vampire glory.

The monthly miniseries, first published on October 12th, is backed by some serious veteran horror writers as well; you've got Tim Seeley writing, artists Scott Godlewski and Patricia Mulvihill and covers by Tony Harris, and all are excited to pay homage to the gruesomely stylish film.

The series centers around brothers, Michael and Sam Emerson, who, with the help of militant vampire hunters Edgar and Allan Frog, have to rid their town of another gang of ruthless nightcrawlers. This time though, instead of being Kiefer Sutherland, it's a gaggle of ladies called the Blood Belles, who have come to collect their sister (and Michael's love interest), Star. You can just imagine all the trouble that's gonna cause.

I'm actually pretty interested to see how this series develops and if it'll hold up to the original. The Lost Boys was one of my first introductions into horror (I know, it's not horror horror, but you get my drift. Also, it had the Corey's!), so I have a special place for this movie in my heart and I hope that the comics will do it justice.

Is anyone else interested in this series? Or has anyone picked it up? Lemme know!
