IDW Publishing‘s “2022 and Beyond” panel at San Diego Comic Con on Saturday revealed that The Beauty of Horror creator (and Life of Agony bassist) Alan Robert of Wasted Talent Entertainment has recently signed a new, exclusive publishing deal extending his longtime partnership with IDW to produce new Beauty of Horror coloring books through 2026. Robert’s bestselling series stars mischievous ghoul-girl Ghouliana, who has become a fan favorite and has just been immortalized with a NECA action figure. The 5-inch figure with glow in the dark eyes is the latest addition to NECA’s Toony Terrors Series 7 lineup and was displayed at SDCC alongside Teen Wolf, They Live, and Killer Klowns From Outer Space.
“Back in 2009, IDW gave me my first shot at becoming a comics creator and once they opened their doors to me, I was determined to stay,” said Alan Robert. “I made IDW my home for the last 13 years and I’ve had an absolute blast creating titles such as Wire Hangers, Crawl To Me, Killogy, and The Beauty of Horror with them. I’m thrilled to continue to expand on Ghouliana’s world with a slew of new Beauty of Horror products! I’ve still got lots more madness up my sleeve.”
