Return of the Gremlins (2008) comic books 2008
MIKE RICHARDSON (W), DEAN YEAGLE (A), and DAN JACKSON (C) Our story opens on Gus, a man visiting England from the States. His grandfather's house is part of his inheritance, and he plans to sell it as soon as he can. Even though the locals think the house is haunted-something Gus immediately dismisses-a slick man named Mr. Snide promptly appears with his 'associates' and makes an offer. But when Gus declines to sign over the house right then and there, Snide reveals that his arrangement with the mayor will seal the deal soon enough! Left to explore the place, Gus experiences a series of very odd events. How did his folded clothes end up in knots? Who on earth would drill a hole in a coffee cup? Certainly not ghosts, but for a former fighter pilot's abandoned old home, it sure is clean . . . When the house's tiny residents decide to take extreme measures, Gus will meet the gremlins up close and personal-just like his grandfather, who first discovered them sixty years ago! ? Based on the classic Disney characters created by world-renowned author Roald Dahl! ? Gremlins was the first children's book from author Roald Dahl. Written by Mike Richardson!

THE RETURN OF THE GREMLINS #2 (of 3) Mike Richardson (W) and Dean Yeagle (A) The gremlins face a forced eviction, and they aren't going to go without a fight. And when gremlins fight, cars end up disassembled, front porches disappear, and grown men end up trussed in tiny ropes like overgrown turkeys-which is exactly how the house's owner, Gus, found himself last issue! But this issue finds him in just as sticky a situation: the gremlins are convinced that Gus is here to save their home, not sell it! Meanwhile, Mr. Snide and his accomplices plan to scare the living daylights out of Gus in order to convince him to sell the 'haunted' house . . . and they're about to get more than they bargained for. ?

But since then he's been beset by mysterious hauntings, accosted by real-estate thugs, tied up, roped into saving gremlin creatures from eviction, and literally knocked off his feet by Molly, a lovely young librarian with a black belt. To top it all off he's landed in jail, and his house is about to be bulldozed! What he needs now is a brilliant plan . . . and hundreds of tiny friends up for uncontrollable mischief.
