IDW Comicsby Kevin J. Anderson and Rebecca Moesta
Life is rough for the old movie monsters at the Rest In Peace "retirement care facility for mature monsters with special needs." Dracula has to take out his fang dentures before he can eat his blood Jell-O, the Wolfman's fur is falling out in patches, the Mummy is unraveling as he sits in a rocking chair on the porch. Then, one day, the monsters learn the terrible news that the evil Van Helsing Development Corporation intends to tear down Castle Frankenstein to pave the way for new luxury condominiums. The retired old monsters simply can't sit still for that! They decide to break out of the R.I.P. retirement home and go on one last adventure to save the castle!
This four-issue comic series features charming artwork by Spanish art team Paco Cavera and Guillermo Mendoza. Kevin and Rebecca have written a series with plenty of humor for all ages, with wry satire for older readers and hilarious action for younger kids.
The entire four-issue series is now available in a single volume.
