The-Lost-Boys-1-2-600x923Besides all of the things that I have said that I love, horror films and the 1980’s is definitely something else I love. In the world of vampires, there was nothing more iconic in the 1980’s than the 1987 classic The Lost Boys which starred Corey Feldman and Corey Haim and many others. When I saw that Vertigo decided to adapt The Lost Boys into a comic book, I had to find out what they were up to so I picked up issue one. The comic book as far as the timeline is concerned is right after the events of the film where Sam is working at a comic book store, Michael works with old people and is still dating Star, The Frog Brothers are still training for any situation, while Grandpa runs a vampire hunters society club. All things look normal for once in Santa Carla until something new and sinister decides to show up and disturb the peace. To read more about the issue or anything else that Vertigo, an imprint of DC Comics produces, you can do so by going here.

TLBOYS_1_1Think of this comic book miniseries as the unofficial sequel to the film The Lost Boys instead of those films that came out later on. The comic book shows us what life is like in the town of Santa Carla and how everyone has adjusted to the events that took place. I love the story because it sets you up perfectly and leaves you wanting to know more about what happens next which is what any great book should do. I realized coming into this paragraph that this is the first Vertigo release that I have covered for this challenge and they may have their sh** together as far as comic books are concerned, but DC is doing a really good job now with Rebirth. The artwork in the book is pretty cool as it takes a little bit more of a horror look to it which I definitely like and it’s very easy to read and follow along as far as the panels are concerned. This is a great comic for fans of nostalgia and horror and vampires too. Check out my grades below:
