The Horror! The Horror!: Nosferatu, Frankenstein, & 30 Days Of Night
Jun 05, 2018
Finally! An ongoing monthly article that makes you face the monsters in the closet. You can run, but you can't hide from our selected ghoulish items in PREVIEWS that will make you flee and scream bloody murder. Horror fiends: let the madness begin! This is the run-down on what ghastly items can be found in this month's PREVIEWS catalog, and if you can't take the chills, TOO BAD! This is where the children of the night gather, and howl at the moon without apology.
30 Days Of Night TP
Writer Steve Niles broke the mold when he first delivered his infamous vampire tale of bloodsuckers in Alaska. Vampires were typically the undead which resided in their coffins, and were limited to a feeding cycle hampered by daylight. But then came Steve Niles' breakout story that featured art by Ben Templesmith, and vampire stories were taken to the next level. Now that bar has been raised again as artist Piotr Kowalkski takes over art chores to reimagine this story for a new generation of comic readers with IDW's 30 Days of Night TP (JUN180721). Featuring new artwork and a new cover by Aurore Folny, this book that depicts pure evil which lurks in the shadows can be found in the Premier Comics section of the June PREVIEWS catalog!
Frankenstein Alive, Alive! HC
Many called him the master of the macabre. Others just called him "Bernie." But the comic industry knew him officially as a legend when he unveiled his masterpiece Frankenstein, which offered glorious black-and-white drawings to illustrate the words of writer Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley. Bernie Wrightson's Frankenstein is when the artist showed comic fans that he was years beyond his contemporaries. Now, with IDW Publishing's Frankenstein Alive, Alive! The Complete Collection (JUN180751), the artist shows that his vision for the Frankenstein monster will live longer than any other book in your graphic novel library. Written by Steve Niles, this hardcover collects the four-issue series along with an extended gallery section of never-before-seen layouts and pencils by Wrightson. You can find it in the Premier Comics section of the June PREVIEWS catalog!
Dollman Kills The Full Moon Universe #1
A miniature maniac versus a toy box of evil in what could be the beginning of the end for the Full Moon Universe! Sound like Pixar's Toy Story on LSD? Well, yeah, that would be one way of putting it. But if you know anything about movies from Full Moon Universe, you know that they excel in embracing the "gonzo" factor whenever they tell a story. Now that they're in the business of making comics, did you expect them to do things differently? In Dollman Kills The Full Moon Universe #1 (JUN181779) the fear factor gets turned up to "11" because the overflow of evil creatures that inhabit Dollman's galaxy are about to be pursued with extreme prejudice. Epic destruction will now follow! Look for this twisted tale from Full Moon Features in the Comics/Graphic Novels/Print section of the June PREVIEWS!
Nosferatu Grayscale Reaction Figure
Count Orlok is one of those doomed souls cursed to walk the Earth as a hideous reflection of humanity. Such a creature should only be found in the bowels of Hell, yet he walks among us serching for human blood to quench his immortal thirst. Sounds creepy, eh? Truth is, Count Orlok is the main antagonist and title character portrayed by German actor Max Schreck in the classic 1922 silent film Nosferatu, and this Reaction figure helps you immortalize the timeless undead character! This 3/4" figure comes in eerie grayscale with matching grayscale cardback. Look for it in the Toys/Statues/Models section of the June PREVIEWS catalog!
