BELA LUGOSIS Tales from the Grave

Bela Lugosi comic

Monsterverse has released the image of the Basil Gogos cover for issue one of “BELA LUGOSI’S TALES FROM THE GRAVE.” It was commissioned by Rob Zombie and published only in the Gogos art book by our publisher Kerry Gammill and never used before as a cover. A version of this image on cards will be passed out at events and conventions. You can find MONSTERVERSE ENTERTAINMENT giving a preview of the Lugosi horror comic book at the top monster movie fan event, MONSTERPALOOZA, in Burbank, CA at the Airport Marriott from April 6-11, 2010.

No other publication can offer a “new” pristine example of Basil Gogos’s artwork at his very finest. “BELA LUGOSI’S TALES FROM THE GRAVE” will go on sell at comic shops and online in late September, 2010, in time for the October month of Halloween. A major publicity campaign will promote the book across the mainstream press when Lugosi interest is at its most popular in every media.

Where to start: The Goon

Goon comic

Staff writer, David Pinckney, has submitted his latest article, Where to start: The Goon.

We all have heard from people who want to get into comics but don’t know where to start. Some series are just too obscure and feel to distant from a new reader’s realm of comfort while others have issues in the hundreds and there doesn’t seem to be a good jumping on point. So where do we start and how do we know what’s good to read or if it’s even easy enough to get into. Personally, I believe trades are the easiest way to get into a series that may have been going on for a few years. With that in mind I began reading the Goon by Eric Powell, with the intent of explaining if this comic is easy enough to get into and who’d like it.

Devil #2 review

Devil Dark Horse

Could there ever be such thing as a vampire virus? Sounds like the stuff of sci-fi and horror all wrapped up in one, and that’s what makes Devil such an interesting story. Answers unfold about the government program that created this nasty disease of superhuman power and hunger for blood in the second frantic issue. Who is this Mariko creature? Is she a victim, or is she proud of her new, superevolved existence? And can the government really contain the beautiful monster they’ve created?
