Here are five reasons why you should get The Beauty of Horror 5: Haunt of Fame:
5) The Alex Trebek Tribute!
Like many Jeopardy! fans out there, I was saddened by the sad news of Alex Trebek’s death. In an interview with Freeman Promotions, the Life of Agony bassist explains why he has a page in Haunt of Fame dedicated to the Jeopardy! host, “As a kid, my Dad watched Jeopardy religiously. Seeing Alex Trebek on our television every night was a big part of my life growing up. And with this latest coloring book, I wanted to tap into that very personal nostalgia.”
4) The Action Figure!
According to the outlet, Robert has teamed up with top toy manufacturer NECA. The very first Beauty of Horror action figure will be released as part of NECA’s Toony Terrors line. Ghouliana, the 5” articulated figure, will be wearing her signature bat-wing dress
3) It’s A Big Deal!
Robert added: “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.”
2) The Colors!
Colorists will have more than 80 pages of detailed, hand-drawn designs, There are also easter eggs hidden throughout the fifth installment. Make sure to spot them all! Plus is that an undead David Bowie!?!
1) Art Therapy!
What’s great about coloring this Haunt of Fame edition is that it can be fun, twisted, and cathartic at the same time. Find the “happy little accidents” like Bob Ross used to say.
