Tales from the Crypt 8 Diary of a Stinky Dead Kid (Paperback)
|Author: Stefan/ Kinney-Petrucha Petrucha|
The Ghoulunatics - The Vault-Keeper, the Old Witch, and everyone''s favorite, The Crypt-Keeper are back to offer their twisted takes on "Diary of a Wimpy Kid," the "Twilight"series, and Guitar Hero! The cover-featured Stinky Dead Kid stars in two tales - - one that explains exactly how he became a Stinky Dead Kid, and another in which he battles "Guitar Demon," a popular musical toy that''s become possessed by an evil entity. There''s also the trenchant tale of teen love involving a girl and a vampire, "Dielite," and the riotous return of the ever-doomed Thomas Donnelly in his most bizarre tale yet!
The eighth installment in the Tales from the Crypt comics series--since its resurrection with GHOULS GONE WILD in 2007--riffs on the insanely popular young people's series, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, as well as the Twilight franchise and Guitar Hero. Stefan Petrucha writes the titular, two-part story with art from Rick Parker. Other stories include: "Dielite" by Petrucha and Maia Kinney-Petrucha and artist Miran Kim; "Carrier" penned by John L. Lansdale with visuals from James Romberger and Marguerite Van Cook; and "Ghoulunatic Sequences" written by Jim Salicrup with art from Parker. This is irreverent, funny MAD-style parody for the younger crowd at its best. Also, half of the first run edition feature a special cover graced by Sarah Palin.
