July 2016 Box of Dread
Dread Central Enamel Pin $15
July marks our 10 year anniversary at Dread Central. It has been a decade now since we set off on our own and I thought it would be cool to do something to commemorate the occasion and share it with our fans and readers. Trading pins and enamel pins have blown up. I have been secretly working on enamel pin designs for a little over a year now and thought this would be the coolest way to announce the newest addition to BoD. Our Dread Central pin is the first in a line of exclusive and officially licensed collectors pins that we plan to release through Box of Dread. Featuring our latest logo designed by Cryface Design laid into black nickel with white and red enamel fill. The flash of lightning behind our ghoulish mascot is screen printed. These things are jewelry quality and highly detailed. We hope you dig this pin and the others we have in store to bring you guys! We have some very cool shit planned for these! Keep your eyes on our Facebook page as there will be more information about the pins we have in store for future boxes. Only a limited number of pins will be sold outside of what we include in future Box of Dread subscriptions though so be sure to subscribe as the only sure way to get each pin is with a subscription. We will announce on our Facebook page when pins will begin going out on a regular basis.
Evil Dead 2: REVENGE OF HITLER featuring BoD variant cover $4.99
Next up we have good ol’e Ash bringing the fight to a bunch of Deadite Nazi scum thanks to our friends at Space Goat Comics. Evil Dead 2: Revenge of Hitler features a Box of Dread variant cover and is written by Ian Edginton with art Oscar Bazaldua and Carlos Eduardo. In case you forgot Space Goat Comics are also the sick mothas bring us the hotly anticipated Evil Dead 2 Board Game. be sure to hit up their Kickstarter campaign if you haven’t already. This thing is going to be a monster!
ID4 Alien Funko Pop! $10.99
With the new Independence Day film coming out this month and it being our 10th birthday at Dread we thought it was too good to pass up doing something ID4 related. 10 years makes us old as hell in website years… And in honor of our “oldness” we decided to go with the “old school” Pop! figure from the first Independence Day. We’ve always enjoyed a good alien invasion but keep yer damn wheelie boards off our lawn darn it!
Signed 5×7 Jonesy Artprint $10
Dani Manning is an artist I met through a friend of a friend at a Comic Con party of all places. That just seems to be the story with all artists somehow. You always bump into them on the off chance somewhere as though there is some mystical cache of artists pocketed away in the aether that are just plucked out and set in your path randomly. When I saw her Facebook post about this painting she was showing as part of an ALIENS exhibit I fell in love with it immediately and knew I had to share it with you guys. I love the xenomorph’s face reflected in Jonesy’s eyes, such an awesome touch! Dani was awesome enough to sign each one for you guys as well.
Dead Rising: Endgame Mini Poster $2
I LOVED DEAD RISING: WATCHTOWER! It was such a fun zombie fest that hit all the right notes as far as I was concerned. If you haven’t checked it out yet do so NOW. I’ll wait. Our friends at Sony and Crackle are at it again with this followup entitled Dead Rising: Endgame and they hooked us up with this poster art that was recently announced at Comic Con. It was actually under Embargo until it was displayed at the show how cool is that? This thing was Top Secret BABY! If Endgame is anything like Watchtower it will be stuffed to the snapping teeth and fit to burst with crazy zombie action.
