New Pin-Up by Alan Robinson

Hey guys! As promised, we're back with a special Halloween treat for all you loyal FREAKSHOW fans out there. Even while we're hard at work on wrapping production on the series, we're already planning ahead for our trade paperback collection, which will be released upon the book's completion this spring. Along with all 112 pages of story from the monthly series, the collection will feature a brand new trade-exclusive pin-up section where some of our very talented friends in the comic book community have graciously provided us with their spin on the characters of FREAKSHOW! We've already collected most of the artwork and it's been a blast to see how everyone views our team with a wide variety of styles represented.

In the spirit of today's monstrous holiday, we wanted to give you a little preview of what you can expect from the full gallery. Here's the team as rendered by the amazingly talented Alan Robinson (LOST SQUAD, WEEKLY WORLD NEWS, TERMINATOR: SALVATION).

Alan did a fantastic job capturing Stronghold, Critter, Rot, Fog, and Psychosis in all their eerie glory! Check out Alan's official site to see more of his gorgeous artwork and get updates on all his other upcoming projects. And if you like this, be sure to pick up the FREAKSHOW trade paperback next year to see more great artwork from some of the best talents in the industry!

Enjoy the pin-up - and Happy Halloween!
