PUPPET MASTER: THE WOODEN BOY ARRIVES IN JUNE
I am not caught up on the Puppet Master film franchise, but I can tell you that I'm loving the comic from Action Lab Entertainment. It's a solid horror tale that made me go out and drop the cash on the DVD box set of the movies so I can get the full backstory. The publisher has recently announced the release of the next trade paperback of the comic series, Puppet Master: The Wooden Boy, due out in June. The graphic novel collects issues 8-11 of the series where the Puppets go toe-to-toe with the human-sized doll Camille. Here's the write-up from Action Lab:
For nearly twenty years a life-sized puppet has tormented the children of the Bouldeston Institute for Mentally Troubled Tots and Teens. When her scare tactics escalate to murder, a young patient named Anthony seeks out the Puppets hoping they can stop their former Master's rampage. Things, however, are never as simple as they seem.
Puppet Master is written by Shawn Gabborin and illustrated by Antonio Ontiveros and colorist Dan Olvera. I'm a few issues behind on the comic so this trade paperback is landing at just the right time for me. I can't wait to check it out.
