IDW Publishing joins hard rocking horror aficionado Alan Robert, creator of the horror coloring book phenomenon The Beauty of Horror (and bassist/songwriter for the legendary metal band Life of Agony), to announce the expansion of his bestselling book series in 2020 with a variety of new products, guaranteed to unleash your inner artist (or, perhaps, a possessing spirit).

In addition to the highly-anticipated return of the full-size coloring book series with The Beauty of Horror 4: Creature Feature, this year will see the debut of Beauty of Horror Tarot Decks, as well as The Beauty of Horror: Haunt This Journal, the perfect logbook to keep track of your innermost thoughts and devilish desires!

There have never been as many frighteningly entertaining boredom busters for Beauty of Horror fans!

“Four years ago, on April Fool’s Day 2016, I pitched IDW this crazy idea to make the ultimate adult coloring book for horror fans. They ended up giving me the quickest yes to a project I had ever received,” says creator Alan Robert. “When I got the green light just 20 minutes later, I had to circle back to make sure they were serious, because after all it was April Fool’s Day and I thought they were probably just messing with me. It’s hard to believe how far this title has come since then… and I know it is just the beginning.”

“Readers and fans have responded so incredibly to Beauty of Horror, helping it remain a haunting presence at the front of the coloring book pack,” says series editor Justin Eisinger. “For a long time, we’ve discussed ways to expand the line and engage new audiences, and now with this range of products we’re able to do exactly that.”

With the exciting new Beauty of Horror developments outlined below, now’s the perfect time to experience what GQ calls “an extraordinary collection of deeply unsettling images,” and The Wall Street Journal calls “scary fun!”
