Alan Robert's "The Beauty of Horror" Coloring Book reviews
Skelton Crew Studio, the sculpting house responsible for creating an array of high-end, limited edition replicas based on award-winning comics properties such as Locke &Key, Hellboy and CHEW, is excited to announce a new partnership with acclaimed comics creator Alan Robert to produce an exclusive line of collectables based on his hit comic Killogy (IDW Publishing).
The first products from the collection will make their debut at Boston Comic Con, July 31 - August 2, 2015. Two 16 oz. etched Killogy Pint Glasses will be available for purchase at Skelton Crew Studio's booth (D517), retailing at $10.99 each. One design features the voodoo artwork found in the comic, circled by an ominous warning of the impending apocalypse, and the other displays a bold Killogy skull logo. Each glass comes complete with a full-color, double-sided "Voodoo Brew" Drink Recipe Card, designed by Robert, using his signature artwork. So have a drink before the dead begin to rise from their graves — it just may be your last!

More products are already in the pipeline and are expected for an early 2016 release, including a plush severed head based on the sarcastic, wisecracking Killogy character One-Eye Tessio. Fans of the comic will not be surprised to discover that One-Eye comes packaged inside his trusty Italian Ices container, just like in the books.
“Killogy is such an original concept and an amazing read,” said Skelton Crew Studio head Israel Skelton. “Alan is a huge talent and clearly an idea machine. We couldn’t be more stoked to be working with him.”
Robert adds, "With a roster filled with comics greats like Mignola, Templesmith, Hill & Rodriguez, and Layman & Guillory, I am extremely humbled and flattered to be welcomed into the Skelton Crew family! They produce some of the best replicas I've seen around and they are completely dedicated to bringing each creator's vision to life."
Killogy received critical acclaim and was named one of Bloody Disgusting's Top 5 Best Mini-Series of 2013. It received two Ghastly Awards nominations and picked up a Horror Comic Award from The Horror News Network. The apocalyptic dark comedy is now in development to become an animated series starring Frank Vincent (Goodfellas, The Sopranos), Marky Ramone (the Ramones), Brea Grant (Heroes) and Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein (of the Misfits fame). The celebrities all appeared inside the pages of the comic as well. In May, Rolling Stone posted a six-minute animated teaser. The animation was produced by Robert's Wasted Talent Entertainment, in association with Squeeze Studio Animation and Rodney Barnes, the producer of The Boondocks.

It is a huge honor for Killogy to be Nominated for Best Mini Series of 2013 by The Ghastly Awards. The Ghastly Awards recognize outstanding achievements in Horror Comics over a range of 15 different categories. The nominees are chosen by other horror comic book professionals and winners are chosen by a panel of judges.
Goodfellas and The Sopranos actor Frank Vincent is world famous for delivering some of the best, wise-ass lines ever heard in mob films and on TV. His character Billy Batts gave new meaning to the word "shinebox." Most recently, Frank Vincent joined forces with Marky Ramone and Brea Grant to appear as Sally "Sno-Cones" in the hit comic book series Alan Robert's Killogy (IDW Publishing). Here's your chance to put some words in Frank's mouth! Enter the Killogy "What's Frank Vincent Gonna Say Next?!" Contest by simply posting what you think he should say in the comic panel.
