You might think hanging out with hobos for the past month must have got us feeling cavalier but truth is, we’re just so damn excited about Ghoulish Gary’s illustrated cover for next month’s issue that we thought we’d give you an early look at what’s headed your way (probably in a rusted-out boxcar) in April. Behold…
What do you do when you wake up at 4 in the morning and can’t get back to sleep? Well, I’d suggest doing what I did: make yourself a nice cup of tea, grab your best pair of headphones, turn off all the lights and settle in to slooshy the final episode of Tales From Beyond The Pale – Season One.
This is by far the coolest thing I’ve seen in a while. Sean Hartter does alternative universe vintage movie posters, including some incredible horror ones, such as Alfred Hitchcock’s Halloween; Ghostbusters starring Vincent Price, Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing; plus Boris Karloff as a retro Freddy Krueger. You can see them here in a post he put up in 2009 (thanks to Boingboing for re-posting this) – click on them to blow ‘em up. Even better: you can order posters of ‘em them on the site!
Organizers Sarah Legault and Vincent Marcone are following up last years highly successful “Curious Collection of Monstrous Tinies” show with the art event called “Stranger!”.

Kirk, Ryan Price, Paige Reynolds, make-up FX artistAnthony Veilleux, Rue Morgue’s own James Fisher, Justin Erickson, yours truly and many more.
Lowbrow artist Dirty Donny is embarking on a Canadian tour this week promoting and signing his giant new art book, Monster Revolt. Dig that slip case, screen printed with metallic silver ink. They’re limited to 100, so if you want to get your claws on one before they’re gone, contact Donny at email@example.com. Keep your eyeballs peeled for an upcoming art feature with Donny in magazine.
Here are some pics from last night’s Thor show at Sneaky Dee’s. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: he’s one of the best performers out there. Last night’s show had catchy, first-pumping metal tunes, monster masks, humour, beer, scantily-clad dancers, rubber props and even a full-on impromptu strip show! If you passed on the Thor gig, may the gods forgive you, because it was a freakin’ blast.
THOR! THOR! THOR!
