Alan Robert’s the Beauty of Horror Coloring Book Series Continues with 'Haunt of Fame'
Feb 10, 2021
With four fearsome coloring books, two seasonal specials, and a haunted journal under his belt, Alan Robert — creator of the coloring book phenomenon The Beauty of Horror and bassist/songwriter for the legendary metal band Life of Agony — is proud to announce the newest edition of the bestselling IDW series, The Beauty of Horror 5: Haunt of Fame. As with its preceding fourth volume (the wildly successful Creature Feature), Haunt of Fame plunges a sharp knife into the very heart of pop culture!
“It’s like a twisted wax museum filled with all of my favorite pop culture stars,” says Beauty of Horror creator Alan Robert. “Similar to how Ghouliana took on horror icons in the last book, this time she tackles rock royalty, sports heroes, and famous faces from TV and film. It’s a bizarre mashup that’s equally horrific as it is hilarious. I really can’t wait to see what coloring fans do with these freaky designs!”
Join the terrifying tyke Ghouliana and her merrily-macabre squad of walking horrors as they spend their 15 minutes with the most famous celebrities to ever brighten our cultural landscape. While coloring the 80 pages of detailed, hand-drawn designs, be sure to help the fan-favorite fiend find all the ghastly memorabilia and easter eggs hidden throughout. The Beauty of Horror 5: Haunt of Fame is presented in the original size and double-sided format that fans love.
“Alan Robert consistently delivers some of the most original and engrossing coloring experiences in the market,” says Nachie Marsham, publisher of IDW. “With its creepy aesthetic and passionate embrace of pop culture iconography, the Beauty of Horror line welcomes a diverse adult audience that’s eager to let loose with their mischievously creative side.”
