SLG Publishing has announced that Pinocchio, the Vampire Slayer is headed back to comic book stores with a new graphic novel titled “Pinocchio: The Great Puppet Theater”.
Now with an undead Master Cherry and the addition of his long lost marionette family in tow, Pinocchio might just be closer to getting his greatest wish granted than he ever thought possible. But, WHICH wish? And will Pinocchio’s life ever be the same afterwards?
“Collodi’s story is so rich that, if we wanted, we could fill dozens of books up with adventures spinning from his world,” says writer Van Jensen. “The challenge then really is in choosing the right pieces of his story to incorporate into ours without going overboard. While our story certainly spins off into totally different directions, I like to think it keeps up the tone of Collodi’s Pinocchio.”
Van Jensen is writing the followup graphic novel, while Dustin Higgins provides the art. The 176-page book arrives in October, and features a cover price of $14.95.
