Official press release:
Bestselling author & artist Alan Robert is once again expanding his ever-growing Beauty of Horror collection. This August, fans of the hit series will be treated to an all-new coloring book that pays tribute to some of Robert’s favorite pop culture icons. The Beauty of Horror 5: Haunt of Fame highlights an array of famous faces from the past, mixing a unique blend of horror and humor into over 80 pages of stunning original illustrations to color. Pre-order it here.
Later this year, Robert is teaming up with top toy manufacturer NECA, best known for their Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Alien, and Predator figures, to release the very first Beauty of Horror action figure. Based on series’ fan-favorite Ghouliana, the 5” articulated figure is featured wearing her signature bat-wing dress as part of NECA’s Toony Terrors line. Creator Alan Robert explains:
“To see Ghouliana smiling her piranha-like grin alongside gruesome greats like The Nun, Scream’s Ghost Face, and Michael Myers is a huge honor for me. I feel like my little undead girl is all grown up!”
NECA VP and creative director Randy Falk says:
“Bringing Ghouliana to life in toy form with her very first action figure has been a terrifying treat. Collaborating with Alan to translate his artwork into sculpted form has unearthed a plethora of possibilities for Ghouliana’s future. The imagery just lends itself so well to figures, dolls, masks, costumes and more.”
Last month, the highly-anticipated Beauty of Horror Tarot Decks were released, allowing fans and curious newcomers to glimpse into the future with two terrifyingly tempting variations: Fear Your Future and Color Your Destiny. Both sets contain 22 major and 56 minor arcana cards, all illustrated by Alan Robert. Fear Your Future is a more traditional tarot set featuring fully-colored standard-sized tarot cards (colored by Locke And Key’s Jay Fotos), while Color Your Destiny has black-and-white oversized tarot cards that are uncoated and ready to color! Each Tarot Deck comes packaged inside a collectable keepsake Guidebook with ribbon lift, ready to add to any discerning tarot card collection.
