The Lost Boys Vol.1
by Tim Seeley
Blurb: 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!

As soon as I saw this, I had to pick it up. I went straight to Amazon and bought it. Being a child of the 80s, “The Lost Boys” was one of my favorite movies. I couldn’t wait to read this.
The story starts out right after the end of the first movie with a little short recap and David had just been defeated along with Max and the rest of the clan. Sam is working at Fantasy World Comics and having a discussion with a customer.
All is good in Santa Carla, or is it?
The Frog brothers are still practicing their vampire hunting skills along with Grandpa Emerson. Now, there’s a whole new breed of female vampires called the Blood Belles on the loose and they’re looking to kill every vampire hunter in sight.
Can the Frog brothers stop the bloodsuckers before they take over Santa Carla for good?
All the main characters are present in this graphic novel including Sam, Michael, Lucy, Grandpa Emerson, The Frog Brothers, Star, Laddie and a few other surprise characters as well. I thought the graphics were pretty good, my only complaint was that they don’t look as real as the true movie characters like they do on the cover.
My favorite character is the awesome Tim Cappello! I’m sure all you fans remember this beefy sax player from the movie, right? He has a significant part in the story. I was pleased with his addition. You can see the original music video for “I Still Believe” from “The Lost Boys” movie below to refresh your memory.
Overall, I’m glad I read it and even had a few laughs. It was nostalgic and I enjoyed revisiting all of my favorite characters from the original movie. The story kept me interested and the graphics were pleasing. This is a good sequel to the movie. It does contain some harsh language and it’s probably best for older teens+
I’ll rate this one 4****
