[This Article Contains Paranormal Activity SPOILERS]

Man, I can’t wait to see the heads of those of you who HATED Paranormal Activity (about 50% of the audience) explode!

Paranormal Activity has inspired an online comic book from IDW Publishing, written by comic book industry veteran Scott Lobdell (Uncanny X-Men, Fantastic Four, Wild C.A.T.S.), which has appeared in shiny polished digital format over at iTunes.

Update: If you want to preview the first 5 pgs of the comic book, go HERE.

If you thought that Paranormal Activity was a boring-as-hell movie about nothing, then you’re probably wondering to yourself how that premise – a young couple haunted by a demonic spirit – ever translated to the comic book page.

Entitled The Search for Katie, the online comic follows [SPOILER ALERT] the demonologist mentioned but never seen in the film, as he searches for Paranormal Activity main character Katie, following her possession by the demon. Here’s the official synopsis, courtesy of Shock Til You Drop:

Katie has gone missing. And Dr. Johann Averys, an internationally renowned demonologist, is determined to find her! PARANORMAL ACTIVITY didn’t stop on the final frame of the movieā€”in fact, the story is just beginning!

Writer: Scott Lobdell
Artist: Mark Badger
Letterer: Chris Mowry
Editor: Chris Ryall

You can pick up the comic for .99 cents over at iTunes by going HERE. Or, as stated above, you can preview the first 5 pgs by going HERE.

Paranormal Activity had multiple endings that were screened for audiences . However, the premise of this comic confirms the “body-at-the-camera” theatrical ending as the official winner. I always thought that ending would make for a good lead-in to the forthcoming Paranormal Activity sequel, but I guess the studio isn’t going to wait that long. Will the misadventures of Dr. Johann Averys serve as the prologue to the sequel? We’ll see.

If you liked Paranormal Activity, please check out the comic and then let us know what you think.

Side Note: How did they ever get Scott Lobdell to do this???

Paranormal Activity will be on DVD/Blu-ray on December 29th.

  1. Worst movie i’ve seen in about 10 years. While the rest of the cinema audience was gasping and scared, my girlfriend, I & my mate were sitting there WAITING for something to happen.

    Even for a low budget indie this was really lame.

  2. I thought that the movie was excellent, but the comic book is way too much. And while we’re at it, no sequel please, remember Blair Witch 2?

  3. I bought the comic. It really was nothing great.

    I’ll sum it up for you guys and save ya a buck…

    The demonologist and the ghost guy from the first movie are talking about how bad they feel about the Micah dying and Katie missing. He’s in the house when they talk and a cop woman shows up and tells him he needs to have police supervision to be here.

    He shows her the photo that got smashed and said something about how the picture was smashed or scratched from the inside.

    They go to where Micah’s body is and his face was cut (looked like Wolverine sliced him face) the same way it was on the picture.

    Someone dressed as a cop comes in when the demonologist is alone and tells him he shouldn’t be doing what he’s doing and the guy thinks he is some demon worshiper. The guy then leaves the room really quick (he said too quick to be human) and then the cop and the demonologist are out and she gives him the wigi board and wants him to find out who killed Katie (she doesn’t believe the demons). He’s in the car with the wigi board and it goes on fire to end the comic.

  4. Damn, sounds like you just lost out on a buck… Could have bought a bag of really unhealthy, but tasty, chips from a vending machine… Oh well, thanks for sharing to maybe save some others from wasting their money…

  5. i want to see it.. i hope it is as good as everybody says it is!!!

  6. i like the movie
