Official Press Release

San Diego, CA - When humans grow old, they call it the "Twilight Years." But when classic monsters like Dracula, Wolf-man, the Mummy, and Frankenstein's monster grow old they call it the "Twilight Zone Years."

With no more villages to wreck, pyramids to bust out of, or victims to haunt, the monsters had no choice but to retire to the old monsters' home. Life seemed easy enough, room and board provided and lots of time to rest in peace. What more could a monster want?

How about one last adventure?

When land developers threaten to raze Castle Frankenstein, the classic monsters decide to bust out of the rest home to right one last wrong for all monsterdom!

Grumpy Old Monsters is an all-ages tale of humor, friendship and adventure that will entertain everyone. Written by bestselling novelists Kevin J. Anderson (Dune: The Butlerian Jihad, The Saga Of Seven Suns series) and Rebecca Moesta (Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Little Things), with beautiful animation-style art by Paco Cavero and Guillermo Mendoza, Grumpy Old Monsters will leave all readers siding with the monsters.

"We have always loved the old monsters," said Kevin J. Anderson, "and we felt it would be a wonderful, fun adventure to turn them into a sort of scary 'Over the Hill Gang.' There's humor in this series for everybody, from kids to grownups."

Grumpy Old Monsters is a four-issue, full color miniseries, debuting in November, with a retail price of $3.99.
