Lost Boys – Reign of Frogs

by Ghastly McNasty

On visiting my comic book shop, I discovered a comic book that came out recently. It’s called ‘Lost Boys: Reign of Frogs’. This was a spin off from The Lost Boys, the cult classic vampire movie.

Being a sucker (no pun intended) for The Lost Boys, I picked it up. And I liked it. There are cheesy moments, but I think it is more tongue in cheek than bad writing. This comic follows the Frogs brothers well known from the movie. Set in the present day, a teenager wants to become a vampire hunter and seeks out Edgar Frog. From there, there are a couple of flashbacks as Edgar explains his background as a vampire hunter. Plenty of action and blood letting. It also gave an interesting spin on American history.

The art is good but I’m not a fan of thick black outlines surrounding the characters. I find them a bit distracting. This is a limited series lasting 4 issues. I’m going to pick up another issue then I will if it’s worth sticking with it.

I also found out that there is a sequel to the Lost Boys. It’s due out this summer, straight to DVD. Straight to DVD, I ask? Does that mean it’s crap? I have no idea but I’m apprehensive seeing how most horror sequels can fail to impress. I’ll reserve my opinion until it comes out. Meanwhile, check out the trailer.
