The Boys meets Nurse Jackie. Rose Osler is a specialist. Her focus? Patients with Powers… at a hospital with a No Powered Patients policy. When a battle between Boston’s protectors and destroyers erupts, Rose is trapped between saving the city’s beloved hero by day and greatest villain at night.

Feb. 21, 2020: Playghoul: Entertainment for Monsters Signing

It’ll be a ghouls night out at Forbidden Planet coming up this Friday February 21st as the maniacs behind Playghoul will descend upon us for an in-store event of monstrous proportions.

“Playghoul is a chronological collection of Maila Nurmi appearances in pulp magazines from 1950 through 1964 and horror hosted with interspersed illustrated adventures by NYC’s own spook show performers, the Phantom Creeps! This project is presented to mimic how the content was originally available in pulp magazine format, but truly ruly this is a 166 page book that was entirely traditional offset printed and perfect-bound by hand by Lance Thingmaker at Creepy Cult! While certain photos have become iconic, these complete articles have never before been reprinted or collected… until NOW! This is a very limited run of only 666 copies.”

Special guests include:

Donald David, Playghoul cover artist
Andrea Sicco, illustrator of Oncoming
Sara Antoinette Martin, illustrator of Space
Mike Decay, Playghoul creator, author, and spook show horror host at Phantom Creep Theatre

So if you’re a comic book creep, horror host homie, spook show enthusiast, or just like dead things, make sure to mark your calendar for February 21st from 6 to 8 PM cause you’re not gonna want to miss this!
