The 1987 vampire horror/comedy film The Lost Boys has seen two direct-to-video sequels and Corey Feldman, who played Edgar Frog in the franchise, recently spoke about his distaste for The Lost Girls, which isn’t anywhere near being a confirmed thing. However, his comments rekindled interest in seeing a return to Santa Carla, a venture that Vertigo Comics has announced they will be undertaking.
The comic publisher has announced that they are releasing a sequel to the film in comic book form later this year (the first issue drops October 12th, to be exact) with writing from Tim Heeley and art from Scott Godlewski and Patricia Mulvihill. The covers will be done by Tony Harris.
Santa Carla, California, is on edge. The eccentric coastal town and haven for the undead was finally returning to “normal” after its last supernatural scuffle left the local vampire coven’s leader dead and gave newcomers Michael and Sam Emerson a housewarming both violent and bizarre. Now the brothers must once again team up with militant vampire hunters Edgar and Allan Frog as a new gang of ruthless, stunning, life-sucking nightcrawlers known as the Blood Belles emerges from the aftermath to collect Michael’s love interest and their lost sister, Star.
Below are some pages from the comic, although they don’t have text.
