Dec 11, 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 the December 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.
Cold Spots TP
Writer Cullen Bunn has made a career out of scaring his readers, and his latest work with artist Mark Torres is no exception. His Cold Spots TP (DEC180074) from Image Comics reminds us that true horror should be unsettling. The kind of story that makes you yearn for a night light in the room. The story is about a man named Dan Kerr and he only wants to see his family whole again. But that may prove extremely difficult because ghosts stir whenever Dan's estranged daughter is near, and as the dead grow restless, Dan's options seem to dwindle. Look for this new book from Image Comics in the Premier Comics section of the PREVIEWS catalog!
Aliens: Dead Orbit HC
Very few space creatures have gone down in comic book and cinema history as both a headache and heartburn all in the same panic attack. Yet, that's what your facing when it comes to staring down a xenomorph. Things usually end the way of a punctured skull or an embryo buried in your chest. Creator James Stokoe reminds us how unpleasent life can be when faced with an attack from the deadliest creature known to man. His book Aliens: Dead Orbit (DEC180378) from Dark Horse Comics comes with bonus process material, and high res scans of original art collected in a deluxe oversized hardcover format. Check it out in the December PREVIEWS catalog!
Universal Monsters Wolfman Reaction Figure
All career monsters at some point have to think about what happens when the bloom is off the rose. Do they just accept that fame is a fleeting moment, find a good agent, and book themselves on the nearest Con circuit? Or do they try to reinvent themselves for a new generation? In the case of the Wolfman, it would be to reinvent onself. The character has had many incarnations since Lon Chaney first created the character for Universal. But if we were to trace things back to when the feral monster first appeared as a plastic icon, the best point of reference would be the retro Universal Monsters Wolfman Reaction Figure (SEP188589) which features 5 points of articulation. Look for it in the December issue of the PREVIEWS comic shop catalog!
Stranger Things Demogorgon Figure Ornament
There's always that one family member that wants to spruce up the Christmas tree. You know who we mean. Traditional decor is not at the top of his or her list because tradition is arguably...well...static. They'll even argue...boring? So what do you do for that grumbly grump in the room that thinks the yearly Evergreen in the house is in need of a makeover? Well, nothing says holiday cheer than the Stranger Things Demogorgon Figure Ornament (AUG189123). First, who doesn't love Stranger Things, and second, no one could give you a better kiss under the mistletoe than a Demogorgon! Look for it in the Collectibles and Novelties section of the December PREVIEWS catalog!
Halloween Michael Myers 6-Inch Deluxe Stylized Roto Figure
The grandfather of all slasher serial killers is now a household name. No doubting that fact. When Jamie Lee Curtis comes back to the silver screen as a grey-haired shotgun-toting grandmother to blow away "The Shape" decades later, you know that the reason is the public can't get enough of masked madman Mike. So stand up and show your support for one of the longest-standing titans of horror with this Halloween Michael Myers 6-Inch Deluxe Stylized Roto Figure (SEP188715) that features 10 points of articulation and Michael's signature knife! Check out this new take on the 1978 Shape which is found in the Toys/Statues/Models section of the December PREVIEWS catalog!
