The press release follows:
Media Release — Great works of art have survived the test of time, but will they survive Ghouliana’s wrath? The latest edition of IDW’s hit coloring book series The Beauty of Horror aims to answer that very question. Bestselling creator Alan Robert of the popular rock band Life of Agony returns to let his undead superstar loose upon the halls of the art museum. The result is a GORE-geous reimagining of the world’s most famous masterpieces. The Beauty of Horror 6: Famous Monsterpieces is filled with over 80 pages of intricate hand-drawn designs, striking a perfect balance of horror and comedy to light that creative spark. However, before you pick your palette, be on the hunt for all the lost, historic items Ghouliana has dropped along the way, such as Van Gogh’s Ear, Venus Di Milo’s arms, Renoir’s Pipe, Warhol’s wig, Salvador Dali’s mustache, and more!
“This book is my way of making up for all of the art history classes I slept through at The School of Visual Arts,” laughs Beauty of Horror creator Alan Robert. “But seriously, it’s an absolute blast for me to interpret the iconic work of the masters by adding my horrific spin to them. Although, I’m sure they’re rolling in their graves. I tackle every illustration with a mischievous, tongue-in-cheek sensibility, and I make sure that the humor is just as important as the horror.”
