Brand New ‘Pumpkinhead’ Comics Coming from Dynamite Entertainment

Keep away from Pumpkinhead. Unless you’re tired of living.

We’re still waiting for more news on the forthcoming reboot of the Pumpkinhead franchise, which was first reported last summer. Peter Block, one of the executive producers of the Saw franchise, obtained the rights and grabbed Nate Atkins to pen the script, though we have no way of knowing what’s going on with all that at the moment.

In related news, Dynamite Entertainment has just announced that they’re bringing Pumpkinhead back to life for a brand new comic series!

From what we gather, the original comics will tell brand new stories that expand upon the rich mythology present in Stan Winston’s directorial debut.

More as we learn it!

    Fucking boss.

    I wish they’d get their hands back in Friday The 13th. The demand seems to have certainly increased for comics based on movies compared to ten years ago. Give it another chance Dynamite!!!

    If they’re planning on a reboot I hope they’re going the way of practical. I love ‘Pumpkinhead’ and the fans deserve that much. That CGI ‘Pumpkinhead’ in either part 3 or 4 was terrible.

      Terrible…AND shriveled…and his head was misshapen…like an avocado.

      HORRIBLE!

    It’s about time! Dark Horse was releasing Pumpkinhead comics in the 90’s but something weird happen that they stop and honestly that sucks since they where going to show a Pumpkinhead with wings.

    Hopefully Dynamite does a good job but seriously, bring up a good artist to draw the creature since i have seen others doing a lousy job and hopefully someone buy the rights for John Carpenter’s The Thing since that’s also one that Dark Horse stop making

      totally agree! I’ve never understood how a property with so much potential has had a downward spiral since the first film.The surviving co-writer of the first film even took his idea for a TV series involving Pumpkinhead to sci-fi and instead we got the 2 less than stellar films over a decade ago. Oh and he had zero involvement in the films.Maybe he’ll be writing this new comic! that would be awesome!

    I hope that we get to see a completion to the unfinished RITES OF EXORCISM mini from ’93. Also pulling for Pumpkinhead co-creator Gary Gianni is involved in this series as well. We might finally get a chance to explore the Dark Pantheon of demons which Pumpkinhead is a part of.

  • Werewolf

    Study both the Stan Winston and K&B versions. His look doesn’t need another “update”.

    And NO CGI in the film!
