Action Lab's Puppet Masters Enters New Dimension


Action Lab Entertainment is not one for resting on their laurels and they're about to launch their brand new series Charles Band's Puppet Master. Getting a new series off the ground is never easy and it's always to have a little help from friends. Action Lab is soliciting that help from New Dimension Comics, the popular Pittsburgh based comic chain for a massive two day signing event. New Dimension Comics will host Puppet Master writer Shawn Gabborin and cover artist Scott Hedlund will be on hand to sign the limited edition store exclusive covers of the brand new series. Gabborin and Hedlund will appear at their stores in Cranberry, PA from 2-4 pm and at the Century III Mall in West Mifflin, PA from 6-8pm on Friday, April 3rd. On Saturday, April 4th, Gabborin will appear at New Dimension stores at Clearview Mall in Butler, PA from 2-4 pm and Pittsurgh Mills in Tarentum, PA from 6-8pm.

Puppet Master is the story 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 since1989 and spawned nine sequels including the most recent, Puppet Master X: Axis Rising. Puppet Master #1 is written by Shawn Gabborin, illustrated by Michela Da Sacco and Yann Perrelet. Full press release below.
