Comic biz news briefs - - - Monsterverse April 04, 2011
Last year was a better than normal year for horror comics, and one new entry that excited me with it’s debut issue and the promise of even better things to come was BELA LUGOSI’S TALES FROM THE GRAVE #1 from Monsterverse Entertainment.
I’m happy to learn that new issues of this title are coming in 2011. Issue #2 is set for a July release and will be featured in the MAY PREVIEWS from Diamond. Cover art was completed by famed make-up artist Rick Baker and it is stunning. The L.A. TIMES previewed the art on its online page, which you can access here . . . . . . . .
A re-listing of Issue #1 will also be solicited in the MAY PREVIEWS. Another new issue is planned for Halloween 2011, a special holiday editon of BELA LUGOSI'S TALES FROM THE GRAVE, as well as publication of the highly anticipated horror graphic novel, FLESH AND BLOOD, from creators Robert Tinnell and Neil Vokes. (Neil Vokes is also making a local appearance at Captain Blue Hen Comics in Newark ,Delaware on Free Comic Book Day – Saturday, May 7th.)
