Day 29′s Halloween GPK will have you howling at the moon!


By Shawn Robare

We’re moving right along with yet another classic GPK monster for day 29.  Creeping out of the third series we have stickers 116a&b, Eerie Eric and Berserk Kirk!

29 - Eerie Eric

I’ll be honest, I wanted to keep the classic monsters together for this countdown, but I also wanted some of my favorite pieces of art to fill the last week of the countdown and these Tom Bunk paintings just aren’t some of my favorites.  Though I respect him as an artist, this card in particular just feels off to me.  Bunk’s kids are a little more static and “hard” (it’s those dimples!), a little rougher around the edges and this werewolf just doesn’t get me howling.  It never really did.  Even though, I’m glad there was a werewolf in at least one of the sets and he’s not horrible, just not my cup of wolfs-bane tea…

Once again, I’m also helping to organize the annual Countdown to Halloween alongside the tireless and super cool monster kid John Rozum. So if you like what I’m doing over here, you might want to head on over to the Countdown site and check out the huge list of other sites participating in this year’s spooky festivities. There’s also a like-minded sister collective called Blog-O-Ween being put together by my pal Cody, the Crooked Ninja Turtle Sensi. Be sure to check them out as well.

    Weird, the skin on the face and hands and feet makes me think more monkey than wolf.
