The company is now taking pre-orders for the May 15 release of DER TODESKING in a VHS NTSC edition in a clamshell case (limited to just 50). The tape will also be available in a boxed set (limited to 25) that also includes a black T-shirt with artwork by Martin Trafford, seven 8.5 x 11-inch Trafford art prints with a certificate signed and numbered by the artist and an enamel pin. There are also 75 pins available separately. The VHS is $29.95, the box is $99.95 and the pin is $12; you can see all the art and pre-order the items at the Cult Epics webstore.
