Who says scary coloring books are only for Halloween? Certainly not IDW and Alan Robert, bassist for the 90s metal band Life of Agony, that’s for sure! That’s why they waited until a week after Halloween was over before announcing the third installment in Robert’s horror coloring book, and also why they set its release date for bright and sunny (presuming war with North Korea doesn’t create a permanent nuclear winter) July 2018. Another thing Alan Robert and IDW do not believe in is brevity in coloring book titles, as the book is called The Beauty of Horror 3: Haunted Playgrounds, Another GOREgeous Coloring Book.
“Fans of this series continue to blow my mind on a daily basis with their amazing coloring work!” shouted Robert in a press release. “It is because of them and their passion to bring my creepy artwork to life that I’ve decided to dive into volume three. With Haunted Playgrounds, I get to expand Ghouliana’s world even more and introduce a slew of new twisted characters for her to interact with in a bunch of bizarre settings. I’m in a great groove right now, with two of these books under my belt, so this one will be some serious fun draw!”
In addition to appealing to fans of horror and fans of Life of Agony, the book has the added bonus of appealing to utilitarians who like to keep as few varieties of crayon on hand at any given time. At most, you need a red and a black for this. Maybe a dark red as well, if you like to live on the edge.
Look for this in stores in July, 2018.
You never know what’s lurking behind the next corner, so keep your eyes peeled for all the hidden pieces of the monster Ghouliana is trying to reanimate.
