Dynamite Entertainment has sent over an exclusive first look at their new comic series based on the classic horror movie Pumpkinhead. The series is being written by Cullen Bunn and drawn by Blacky Shepherd and Kyle Strahm. There will be covers by Kelley Jones, Ken Haeser and a photo cover as well as retailer incentive covers. Pumpkinhead was a 1988 horror film starring Lance Henriksen and marked the directorial debut of special effects master Stan Winston. There have been three sequels over the years and talk about a reboot. There was also a four-part comic series done by Dark Horse in 1993, but only two of the issues were published.

“For each of Man’s evils, a special demon exists.” For thirty years, the demon of vengeance has been still, its corpse buried in a pumpkin patch graveyard in the hills. But when a reckless driver accidentally kills a pair of children, the creature is called up once more. This time, though, the monster’s intended target is protected by a cruel backwoods crime family. They hatch their own supernatural plans for dealing with Pumpkinhead. For each of man’s sins, a special demon exists, and when seven infernal creatures roam the hills and the hollows, no one–guilty or otherwise–is safe.
