Books Original ‘Goosebumps’ Illustrator Tim Jacobus Teases New Collaboration With R.L. Stine!



Like the horror movies of the ’80s, the Goosebumps books are as fondly remembered for their stories as they are the artwork that convinced us to read them in the first place. Of course, R.L. Stine has penned every single Goosebumps story to date, but artist Tim Jacobus‘ contributions are just as important. Jacobus illustrated every Goosebumps book in the original run, bringing Stine’s stories to life with attention-grabbing illustrations that are downright iconic.

It’s been many years since Stine and Jacobus have worked together, but in a new chat with Ghoulish Cast, the artist teases that a brand new collaboration is in the works!

“R.L. and I haven’t done anything together in about 15 years, and I can’t tell you too much about it, but we are working together again,” Jacobus told the podcast.

He continued, “There’s gonna be something he wrote with some of my artwork on the cover. I just recently finished it up. My part is done. My guess is, we’re looking at the usual six month turnaround. It’ll be probably the Fall. There’ll be something there for you to see.”

We’ll keep you updated as we learn more!
