The Press Release:
Just when you thought it was safe to pack your colors away, creator Alan Robert returns with The Beauty of Horror: Ultimate Nightmare, Deluxe Coloring Set. Get your claws around twelve oversized illustrations that you can color and frame from the bestselling horror series. Each 12″ x 12″ MONSTER-sized print allows for an even more fun coloring experience with its large spaces and one-sided, deluxe coloring format. This GOREgeous print collection includes fan favorites from The Beauty of Horror Volume One, Volume Two: Ghouliana’s Creepatorium, Volume Three: Haunted Playgrounds, and features three, brand-new Alan Robert exclusives!
When asked about the thinking behind the title, the Life of Agony bassist explains, “Beauty of Horror fans can finally decorate their walls with their GOREgeous artwork for the very first time, which also means they’ll be inviting Ghouliana into their homes.” Robert laughs, “So, don’t blame me when her hollowed eyes creep you out from across the room! Yeah, I’d say Ultimate Nightmare is aptly named.”
“The fan reaction to Beauty of Horror has been phenomenal,” says Justin Eisinger, Senior Editor, Books for IDW Publishing. “But we knew there were new dark corners of this breakout hit to explore, and this new, collectible format is something we think fans of BoH and coloring books in general will really enjoy.”
The Beauty of Horror: Ultimate Nightmare, Deluxe Coloring Set by Alan Robert arrives in stores September 2018 from IDW Publishing.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I think this is a cool idea if you are a fan of the adult coloring books that we see making an appearance on the shelves every now and again. I must admit that I haven’t “colored” anything in many, many years but some of my friends do and say that it’s a very relaxing practice. These are your conventional folks and not artists per se. I might have to give this a whirl myself considering I always get some awesome provisions from our friends at Crayola at the yearly Toy Fair when we cover the convention. If you are an art-minded person you should look into them as well since there are some fantastic new pencils, crayons and markers. Good luck IDW and Alan on this new release. I cannot wait to see it in living to be color
