And here's more Nightmare Factory linkage, updated with new reviews!
- The fine folks over at Aint It Cool News have posted a great contest for The Nightmare Factory, whereby you can submit your worst nightmare for a chance to win a Thomas Ligotti-autographed copy of the graphic novel! Check it out HERE (www.aintitcool.com/node/33912), and stay tuned for their review of the book next week!
- We’ve also slightly the Fox Atomic Comics MySpace Profile (www.myspace.com/foxatomiccomics) to feature a fun video that goes into detail about what it takes to make a graphic novel! This video was produced for our second graphic novel, The Hills Have Eyes: The Beginning, and debuted as an exclusive on The Hills Have Eyes 2 DVD. Check it out for all sorts of cool interviews, including one with me in my fat suit.
- IGN premiered a few exclusive pages last week; HEAD HERE (http://comics.ign.com/articles/816/816198p1.html) to check 'em out.
MANIA.com (A- REVIEW)
"...if Fox Comics (continues) to put out fantastic titles like "The Nightmare Factory" they will be a force to be reckoned with…"
AND NOW THE SCREAMING STARTS (great website name!)
"The Nightmare Factory is freakin' fabulous"
FANTASY BOOK CRITIC
"a winning combination of diverse comic book talent and masterful storytelling that will appeal to readers who appreciate horror of the more cerebral variety."
ARROW IN THE HEAD.com (A mixed review overall; this is a heavy book!)
“The artwork was superb across the board and was the highlight of the whole experience. However, if you're a fan of Ligotti or the likes of Poe and Lovecraft, and you're looking for something to curl up to this fall to get your 'creep' on, then I'd recommend picking THE NIGHTMARE FACTORY up and giving it a whirl.”
