Remember the classic Goosebumps covers that terrified you as a kid? Dynamite Entertainment is collecting those covers in a new art book that celebrates the books from R. L. Stine.

The Art of Goosebumps“This book is a big ‘Thanks!’ to the Goosebumps fans for their never ending support for my art,” said artist Tim Jacobus said in a press release from Dynamite Entertainment. “I’m honored to hold a spot in your collective memories that brings a smile. And of course, thank you Bob Stine, for taking me along on this epic ride. Cheers!”

Just as important as the thrills and scares inside the books, the captivating covers from artist Tim Jacobus caught readers’ attention and helped them visualize the stories. The imagery provided by Jacobus established the visual brand for the series, carrying forward to influence all the numerous adaptations and merchandise. Every 90’s kid is intimately familiar with these shocking paintings.

Tim Jacobus, R.L. Stine, writer Sarah Rodriguez, and designer Mark McNabb come together for a walkthrough of all the books and covers in the Goosebumps tapestry. Fans new and old can see how initial pencil sketches evolve into the final piece, as well as countless unused versions.

The Art of Goosebumps is 200 pages in length, and is scheduled to arrive in April 2021.
