Bela Lugosi's Tales From The Grave #2
Publisher: Monsterverse LLC
Seven-time Academy Award-winning make-up legend Rick Baker creates his first comic book cover and only for Monsterverse's second issue of Bela Lugosi's Tales From The Grave. Baker has been responsible for cinema history with work like that with Dick Smith when he was only 18 for The Exorcist. He won the first Academy Award for Make-up as a category with American Werewolf In London. He created the make-up designs for Michael Jackson's Thriller, the most successful music video in history. He's created apes for Gorillas In The Mist, and turned Jack Nicholson into a werewolf in Wolf. And for Monsterverse's money he won another Oscar for turning Martin Landau into Bela Lugosi (who also won an Oscar for the role!). The list of Oscars goes on and on right up to the recent The Wolfman. Now, he's bringing Hollywood to modern horror comics!
A strange, pop-eyed sailor is released from a sunken ship after over 70 years; all who look into the eye have their souls sucked out! A masked Mexican wrestler battles a chupacabra to rescue a lady in distress. Travelers from Earth land on a planet inhabited by teenage vampires. A film historian sets out to find a lost horror film and discovers the secret of why it has never been seen by the public. Dr. Vornoff builds a mechanical man to help him conquer the world. And huge bats thought to be destroyed have apparently returned to wreak havoc on a small town once again!
