    Casper the Friendly Ghost® returning to comic books

    NEW YORK, NY (March 8, 2011)—As part of its ever-expanding KiZoic line of all-ages titles, Ape Entertainment and Classic Media announced today that the publisher will be adding the Casper’s Scare School™ property to its roster, featuring the “Official Ambassador of Halloween,” Casper the Friendly Ghost®, and all of the characters from the CGI-animated Casper’s Scare School television series.
    Based on the film, Casper’s Scare School, released in 2006, the television series first premiered in the U.S. in 2009 on Cartoon Network. In Scare School, Casper has a new assignment: to get in touch with his spooky side—or else! The school was founded over 100 years ago to educate and prepare the creature youth of today for the difficult challenges they’ll face tomorrow. Its purpose… to turn the pupils into lean, mean, scaring machines! Well, all except for one.
    “Anyone who grew up on comic books is familiar with Casper the Friendly Ghost,” states Ape Entertainment founder and co-publisher Brent E. Erwin. “What Scare School does is reinvent the character for a new generation of fans, while never losing what appealed to the original readers who first fell in love with Casper decades ago.”
    Published under the company’s young reader imprint, KiZoic, Casper’s Scare School will reach stores in October 2011.
    “It’s classic Casper but with a slight contemporary spin,” continues Erwin. “And while a lot of the old material featured only Casper at its core, Scare School stars a cast of colorful characters that the entire family can enjoy.”
