In early October of last year, Dynamite Entertainment announced that they’re partnering with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures, and recruiting Cullen Bunn (Deadpool, Venom, and The Damned) and artist Blacky Shepherd (Voltron: From the Ashes) to develop a series of original comic book projects based off of Stan Winston’s 1988 Pumpkinhead.
While sales distribution of issue #1 (of 5) began a little over a week ago, Dynamite Entertainment has just uploaded a plethora of preview images of issues #1-4, including variant covers of each issue and the first 5 pages of issue #1.
The first issue’s synopsis is detailed on Dynamite‘s website as:
“For each of Man’s evils, a special demon exists.”
For thirty years, the demon of vengeance has been still, its corpse buried in a pumpkin patch graveyard in the hills. But when a reckless driver accidentally kills a pair of children, the creature is called up once more. This time, though, the monster’s intended target is protected by a cruel backwoods crime family. They hatch their own supernatural plans for dealing with Pumpkinhead. For each of man’s sins, a special demon exists, and when seven infernal creatures roam the hills and the hollows, no one–guilty or otherwise–is safe.
The next issue in the series will be on sale March 14th of this year, but the first issue is available as a digital copy on Comixology and Dynamite Entertainment for physical and digital copies, or venture to your local comic book distributor and pick it up (or request it).
In the mean time, we implore readers to go and check the gallery, because the cover variants (especially issue #1) are AMAZING.
