Goosebumps 2020

Illustrations by Jack Stephens


R.L. Stine’s Goosebumps inspired a generation of spooky campfire stories and late-night horrors that haunt children’s nightmares. However, these terrifying tales were always just make-believe, not real. Yet nearly 30 years after the first published novel, Goosebumps now seems more real than ever. The year 2020 has teased us with World War 3, recognized the legitimacy of extraterrestrial life, and seen the spread of a dangerous virus pandemic which has effectively changed the way we live— oh and we still have 7 months to go! We may just be living in a Goosebumps novel after all. So, let’s take a peek at what our new reality looks like through a reimagining of classic Goosebumps book covers updated for 2020…
