Dan Brereton has returned to Kickstarter to debut a collection he describes as, “A Fiendish Phantmagoria of Illustrations for your October Soul.”
We had the opportunity to speak with Mr. Brereton to gain more insight on his upcoming book and portfolio, his artistic process, and what he’s been up to since our last, pre-pandemic discussion.
Dan Brereton launched a Kickstarter campaign this morning for a hardcover art book and signed art portfolio featuring some of his most popular characters and most memorable works. The campaign offers fans a deluxe edition of the Children of Night art book, the Octoberlands art portfolio, and a variety of options to add on sketches, remarques, and even original watercolor paintings.
We had the opportunity to sit down with Mr. Brereton on the first day of Terrificon to discuss the world of horror which has greatly influenced his work, and his own artistic process.
If you are a fan of monster comics and monster artwork, Dan Brereton should be no stranger to you. Whether it is through his beloved creator-owned titles The Nocturnals and Doc Horror, his work on Batman and Superman mini-series, or his cover artwork for Rob Zombie albums, his distinct style is one that has captured fan interest for nearly 30 years.
Originally published by Malibu Comics’ creator-owned Bravura imprint in 1995, The Nocturnals was like a delicious Halloween treat for fans of Universal Monsters, pulp-era detective stories, and film noir.
