“The Beauty of Horror” Coloring Book from Alan Robert
With the adult coloring book trend in full effect, leave it to Horror Comic Award Winner Alan Robert to deliver art therapy for horror fans. This October be on the lookout for “The Beauty of Horror” coloring book. See press release below:
Rock-star-turned-comics-creator Alan Robert (Life of Agony) has inked a deal with premier publisher IDW Publishing to create a unique, horror-themed adult coloring book, titled The Beauty of Horror, scheduled for a 2016 Halloween release. The Beauty of Horror is filled with intricate, hand drawn, pen and ink illustrations by Robert that take the color enthusiast on a twisted journey through bizarre carnivals, the zombie apocalypse, serial killer lairs, and haunted burial grounds. Horror fans and newcomers alike will welcome this GORE-geous and creative blood-soaked alternative into their coloring library.
“The coloring book craze took hold of my wife and daughter a few months ago and I wanted to get in on the fun, but as I flipped through the endless pages of nature patterns, it dawned on me that someone left out all of the damn corpses,” Robert laughs. “As a proud member of the horror community, I took it upon myself to stand up for the rights of monster-lovers everywhere. Why should we be excluded from the coloring phenomenon?! Needless to say, my take on the whole thing is completely warped, but I know I’m not alone… there’s a lot of us horror-fiends out there looking to color in some morbid stuff.”
The Beauty of Horror features 80 pages of original artwork depicting a variety of increasingly terrifying scenes and patterns. Featuring a beautifully chilling red foiled cover and high-quality paper that will ensure the pools of blood you color don’t leak through the pages, Robert and IDW have come together to present a deluxe coloring experience.
“From the first image he sent over, it was clear that this was going to be a hit,” says IDW VP of New Product Development, Jerry Bennington. “Alan (Robert) has such an eye for creating these coloring pages that are gruesome and gory, but still something you can’t help but want to color. It’s really like The Walking Dead have burst into The Secret Garden, and we love it.”
The Beauty of Horror will be in stores this October, and this horror fan can’t wait to get started on the creepy clowns to hang on the Horror News Network fridge!
