Stine, the award-winning, bestselling horror author and creator of Goosebumps and Fear Street, artists Kelly & Nichole Matthews and featuring a cover by Julian Totino Tedesco. This middle grade supernatural horror series takes young readers Just Beyond the reality they know…Just Beyond their normal lives…Just Beyond the real world to an always-surprising place of fantasy and fright.

In Just Beyond: The Scare School, the first original graphic novel in the series, something’s not quite right as we meet three 12-year-olds in strangely old-fashioned clothing creeping through the halls of Scare Middle School and trying to blend in with the present-day students while evading a menacing cyborg creature, the Drogg. Where did they come from? And why is this scary mechanical monster hunting them down? Thrust into the middle of this terrifying mystery are three modern day students, Josh, Jess, and Marco, who end up fighting for their lives while trying to escape the very nightmare that the three kids in old-fashioned dress were fleeing from, a school of horrors that exists JUST BEYOND their very own.

As magical monsters pour out of the fractured relic and run amok, Charlie, Janet, and Trevor must find a way to capture all of the creatures in order to save their family—and potentially the entire world—before it’s too late.

Writer Kara Leopard ([Super]Natural Attraction) and illustrators Kelly & Nichole Matthews (Jim Henson’s Power of the Dark Crystal) weave an otherworldly tale about finding help in the unlikeliest of places, learning the truth about your family history, and most importantly of all, talking cats.
