Horrible Ugly Monsters by Monsterwax on Kickstarter

Monsterwax is proud to announce a new series of Monster cards now on Kickstarter: Horrible Ugly Monsters!



If you like classic & crude monster cards (like Terror Monster cards from the 1960s), you'll get a big kick out of this series. It was all conceived, written, and drawn by Bob "X" -- one of the co-founders of Xex Graphics and the Bad Art scene from the 1980s. That's "Bad Art" as in FUN art, the kind that celebrates "low brow" subjects like the crazy caricatures of Basil Wolverton, counter-culture comic books like Mad Magazine & Zap comix, and grotesque, slobbering monsters found in oddball trading cards and comics! His partner, Xno, also drew monstrous covers featured in its "Krazy Cover" subset. (This is the same Xno that painted 80% of the infamous Dinosaur Attacks cards for Topps.) So this is a series that monster ghouls are really gonna dig!

Wax packs also contain original artist sketch cards, actual printing plates, metal cards, and even ghoul gum! And pledges for sets or boxes get an exclusive, customized backer card with the patron's name and backer number on it. So check it out if you can, and enjoy the beautiful Ugliness of it all!

(The campaign ends Wednesday, June 27th)

Picked a hellofatime to run this... it started the same day as the riots! (Yikes!) But it passed the funding goals in spite of all the, er, excitement.

It sure was right about one thing though: Things sure have gotten ugly. (Let's hope things calm down soon and people can work more on improving the situation rather than exasperating it.)

Down to just five more days (and up around $5,000.00), the Horrible Ugly Monsters campaign continues to slither to its ultimate end.

One of the fun things about this series is the "time capsule" element it includes. Xex Graphics was a Who's Who of up and coming underground artists in the mid 1980s. Besides the infamous Xno, (Mr. Monsterman himself), there were various newcomers who really went places, including Kaz, Dennis Worden, Jeff Gaither, and Mark Newgarden. Their covers are a real blast from the past! This series has waited nearly three DECADES to get published, and now it's finally happening, thanks to crazy Kickstarter patrons like ourselves.

Check out this Wolverton influenced cover by Worden, and a nightmarish FEAR cover by Gaither. (Jeff has gone on to do a lot of wonderful heavy metal album art-- no surprise there!)

It's the final day for the Horrible Ugly Monsters. The stretch goals (ghouls?) have been met and the campaign ends tonight (Wednesday June 24) at midnight. The sets & master sets are Kickstarter exclusives, as in the promo.
