Adult Coloring Books are all the rage right now, but there hasn’t been enough horror-themed ones. Yes, we are getting a Walking Dead-themed one later this year; but we need something else that focuses on the serial killers, the creepy carnivals, and haunted burial grounds. Luckily Alan Robert has created The Beauty of Horror and IDW Publishing will be releasing it this October. Read more about it below!
Get that red crayon ready!
“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 TheWalking Dead have burst into The Secret Garden, and we love it.”
The Beauty of Horror will be in stores this October.
