In this follow-up to the 1987 cult classic film, horror masters Tim Seeley and Scott Godlewski wade into the bloody, badass world of California vampires for an all-new tale of thrills, chills, and good old-fashioned heart-staking action in THE LOST BOYS VOL. 1!
Welcome to scenic Santa Carla, California. Great beaches. Colorful characters. Killer nightlife. And, of course, all the damn vampires.
The Emerson brothers (Sam and Michael) and the Frog brothers (Edgar and Alan) learned that last part the hard way—these underage slayers took on the vampire master Max and his pack of punked-out minions, and drove a stake right through their plans to suck Santa Carla dry. After scraping the undead goo off their shoes, they figured everything was back to normal.
But now there are new vamps in town.
A coven of female undead called the Blood Belles has moved in, and they’ve targeted Sam, Michael, the Frog Brothers, and every other vampire hunter in Santa Carla for bloody vengeance.
It’ll take every trick in the brothers’ monster-killing book to stop these bloodsuckers from unleashing an entire army of the damned. And they’ll need help from an unexpected source—a certain shirtless sax-playing savior known only as the Believer!

I love a good graphic novel and vampires are kind of my thing, so when I saw that they were going to continue the Lost Boys story line with a book, I got all kinds of excited. I was given an ARC, but unfortunately, I forgot it would expire and it was no longer available when I went to read it. So, I broke down and bought this one and I’m happy to have it in my collection. The story follows the Frog brothers and the Emerson brothers as they once again do battle to destroy a vampire clutch from taking hold in Santa Carla, California – the murder capital of the world. They’ve destroyed Max and his minions, but a new female gang of bloodsuckers, called the Blood Belles, has moved in to take their place. With the help of an eccentric hunter known only as ‘The Believer,’ can our boys dispel the Belle’s evil plans and save the city? This novel had a great ‘80s nostalgia feel to it. The story is just as silly and scary as the original film, so if you were a fan then, you should enjoy this book. There’s a lot of great jokes to make you groan and of course the blood and gore you expect to find in a vampire story. Remember, the film was rated R and you’ll find the same language thrown into the graphic novel, so this is not a comic for kids. I, for one, love that there seem to be more and more comics being marketed to adults these days. Anyone who enjoys a good story can find a graphic series that speaks to them. The characters in this book really stick to the personalities they had in the film. The Frog brothers are still slightly ridiculous, Sam is still a scaredy cat, and Michael still has it bad for Star. Watching them all team up again was a lot of fun. Even the lesser characters are still there – grandpa Emerson, Lucy and Laddie, and the book leaves the story open for a lot more action to come. I will be watching for the next novel. If you’re a fan of ‘80s vampire flicks or vampire comics with sass, you’ll find yourself enjoying this one. 4.5 out of 5 stars
This is the sequel everyone was hoping for when the second and third movies came out. Any fan of the first movie will love this!
Movie is good. This was okay but interesting.
