ACTION LAB ENTERTAINMENT TO PUBLISH PUPPET MASTER SERIES OF BOOKS The legendary horror movie series gets a new life with the home of creation and innovation
SAN DEIGO, CA- Action Lab Entertainment announced at their panel today at Comic Con International 2014 that they have secured the license to PUPPET MASTER, bringing Blade, Jester and Tunneler back to the comics page. The series will be written and edited by Shawn Gabborin (Fracture, Snowed In) with art by a roster of incredible talents hand picked by series creator Charles Band himself.
Puppet Master is the story of Andre Toulon, an elderly puppet maker who discovers an ancient Egyptian potion and uses it to bring his creations to life. At the height of World War II, Andre fled to America, pursued by Nazis. In a last ditch effort to protect his secrets, the master packs the dolls away and takes his own life. Years later a rogue psychic revives the dolls, leaving his associates to face off against the monstrous marionettes. Decades (and a handful of "masters") later, the puppets are still raising hell in their own unique way.
The Puppet Master film series has enjoyed a worldwide cult following since 1989 and spawned nine sequels including the most recent, Puppet Master X: Axis Rising.
