Review: THE LOST BOYS #1

In Comic Books, DC Comics by Matthew Pionk2 Comments

Let’s venture back to Santa Carla, California, the back drop for the 1987 cult classic vampire flick, The Lost Boys! Vertigo Comics picks up right where the movie left off: Sam is working in a comic shop, Michael in an old folks home, Emerson is training the Frog Brothers and the quiet coastal town is blood sucker free.

The Lost Boys #1 brings readers up to speed with what has been happening since the vampire den of David was destroyed by Sam and the Frog Brothers, saving Michael from a lifetime of neck biting. We are also treated to a look into the Santa Carla Hunters Union(SCHU), the secret organization taxed with protecting the community from supernatural predators – which lately has turned to nothing more than a neighborhood watch. A few panels later, we meet up with the Frogs as they trick an unsuspecting Sam behind the comic shop. After some playful banter, a badly injured Emerson stubbles in, explaining how the meeting of the SCHU was ambushed…and we’re left with a panel of a very familiar foe: DAVID!

The Lost Boys is written by Tim Seely with the creative talents of Scott Godlewski, Tony Harris and Joelle Jones. Issue #1 is available today so make sure to pick it up from your local comic book shop and add it to your pull list! If you’re a fan of the 80s movie, this book is sure to delight.
