RELEASE PERIODS : OCT 2016 HK1 + OCT 2017 HK2 + AUG 2018 HK3


The Horrorible Kids Series 1 set was released during the later half of 2016, on October 24th, around the time of the first annual GPK Convention in Vegas of that year. The entire set was created by artist Mark Pingitore who sketched and painted all eighteen characters to create a thirty-six, twin-card parody release poking fun at the horror film genre. The creative title is a play on the words 'horror' and 'horrible'. The first print run set, containing one asterisk (* © 2016 MARK PINGITORE PRTD. IN U.S.A.), was posted to his Magic Marker Art website for $55, along with an already established inventory of t-shirts, art prints, original artwork et cetera. The set was initially part of Pingitore's Slop Culture Kids clothing line from March 2016 and started out as a small set 5x7 artwork on 7x9 card of seven characters with twin images as 'Horror A' set. The 'PEEL HERE' vinyl stickers have an ingenious tombstone-esque die-cut which is a nice reminder of early GPK releases with special sticker die-cuts. Pingitore's titles and products are wonderfully influenced by the 80's nostalgic toy and cartoon era.

~ The character is comically seen talking into a disconnected landline telephone... not a phone call with a disconnect tone, but the handset receiver cord jack being unplugged from the actual phone. The character is also seen sporting some spiffy CPK-esque shoes with OS1-like pink stripes.

  20a + P1a LOST BOYD
~ Nomenclature = The Lost Boys; characters from the 1987 horror comedy film.
~ Horror film description: The Lost Boys (1987 comedy/horror) – Two Arizona brothers who move to California and end up fighting a gang of young vampires. The title is a reference to the Lost Boys in J.M. Barrie's stories about Peter Pan and Neverland, whom, like the vampires in the movie, never grow up. Peter Pan syndrome.
def'n: Lost – Unable to find one's way; not knowing one's whereabouts. Something that has been taken awake or cannot be recovered; like one's innocence.
def'n: Boy – A male child or young man.
 
20b DININ' DAVID

THE TERROR-IBLE TRUTH, PT 1:
~ The character is seen depicted with a massive, great white, killer smile — not in the least bit mechanical. The bloodwork and the helplessly waiving hand is similar to the jaw-snapping Venus flytrap mouth found within the GPK OS3 set for cards 105a Juicy JESSICA and 105b Green DEAN painted by artist John Pound.

 
THE TERROR-IBLE TRUTH, PT 2:
~ The overall open-water feel of the HK2 image is not the same, but very reminiscent of the OS9 GPK character 354a CLARK Shark and 354b MANNY Eater also painted by artist John Pound. The GPK flesh-colored shark is seen feasting on a human hand, attached to a limb, presumably attached to an entire body. A fishing hook war-wound is seen embedded in the lower lip of the angry looking character. The HK2 character does show a few war wounds of his own but things are going swimmingly as he happily munches on his second breakfast.
~ Collectors may recall Pingitore's other Jaws-inspired GPK image for the 2014S1 set for cards 20a Jawin' JULIE and 20b Da-Da DONNA.

def’n: Jumble – To mix up in a confused or untidy way.
 
THE TERROR-IBLE TRUTH:
~ The Predator character (aka Yautja) is seen with his signature dreadlocks — but not 'bald' on top, fully expanded mouth, showcasing his wrist blade weapons and dragging the knocked out Queen alien from the movie Alien by the tail; a nice shout-out to the Alien vs. Predator famous battle in the film from 2004.
~ The swapped-characters (Predator/Queen aliens) and mirror imagery layout doesn't exactly copy it's GPK counterpart, but instead pays respectful homage to the wonderful OS2 characters 55a Hairy GARY and 55b Brutal BRAD painted by artist John Pound, especially when compared to HK2 cards 23a GINA Morph and 23b Alien AILEEN.



~ REDRUM ~


  23a GINA MORPH

~ Horror film character description: Queen alien (aka Queen Mother, MU-TH-UR 6000) – An eusocial alien species that is protective of it's young; the character Ripley plays a 'mother'-like roll in the follow-up movie Aliens and Nostromo's computer is named Mother, the ship's main computer.

THE TERROR-IBLE TRUTH:

~ The swapped-characters (Queen/Predtor aliens) and mirror imagery layout doesn't exactly copy it's GPK counterpart, but instead pays respectful homage to the wonderful OS2 characters 56a Hairy CARRIE and 55b Brutal BRIDGET painted by artist John Pound, especially when compared to HK2 cards 22a FRED A. Tor and 22b Ugly EM F'er.



~ REDRUM ~


  24a RING SUE

def’n: Well – A shaft sunk into the ground to obtain water.
 
THE TERROR-IBLE TRUTH:
~ The Ring movie consists of a plain 'wishing well' surrounded by rock whereas the HK2 image portrays a covered well with a well bucket — in this case, the bucket being a metal cleaning bucket. The bucket is used to draw water from the well by means of a rope and pulley or windlass (a type of winch). The drowned victim has been winched up by her long hair.
~ The well image is a tribute to, at the time unpublished, GPK OS16 cards 651a Dunkin' DUNCAN and 651b WILL Hung painted by artist John Pound. The GPK image shows an edited version of the character being pulled out of th well with the rope under the armpits of the character, the original tight pencil and color rough (and possibly final) shows the rope around the character's neck instead. This may have been too graphic.



~ REDRUM ~


  25a ELLE VIRA
~ Nomenclature = Elvira.
~ Horror film show: Elvira's Movie Macabre (1981 horror movie presentation) – An american acctress, Cassandra Peterson portrayed the horror hostess character Elvira for many sesasons.

~ REDRUM ~


  26a RAY ANIMATOR

def'n: Heinous – A wicked or odious person performing a wrongful act. Horrific, terrible, awful, detestable, abhorrent, loathsome, hideous, unspeakable, reprehensible, despicable, abominable, monstrous, etc.
 
THE TERROR-IBLE TRUTH:

The image minimizes the number of scientific apparatuses and focuses more on the act of the 'mad scientist' injecting the "special solution" into the head of a once-dead victim.
~ Much like the movie poster image, the artwork is also heavily lit from underneath throwing objects above and in back into shadow and showing a heavy light on the underside of the face and washing out the clothing. The piece is highly reminiscent of the OS2 GPK character 72a Mad MAX and 72b Brainy BRIAN painted by artist John Pound, seen manhandling a brain instead of a head and a similar looking syringe needle that has drawn blood or brain fluid instead of injecting a special serum.



~ REDRUM ~

def’n: Screwy – To be rather odd or eccentric.
 
THE TERROR-IBLE TRUTH:

The image showcases the psycho's weapon of choice, a chopping axe used especially for splitting or chopping wood — or human bodies. The character lives in a very sterile environment that matches his narcissistic personality, he sports a see-through raincoat and covers his furniture and puts down newspaper to assist in clean-up.

~ The messy image is a tribute to GPK OS2 cards 79a Sewer SUE and 79b MICHELLE Muck painted by artist John Pound. The GPK image shows the character in the same slouched stance, weighed down by the mass of garbage on her shoulders, completely covered in raw sewage and dripping the hazmat (hazardous materials) as she slowly ambles along. Two flies can be seen within both artwork images and hands dribbling the filth and grime.

Her token blue sweater is laid-to-rest in front of her, as though she's wearing it, with lit wax candles throwing flickering light and dark shadows on her mummified head and short cropped, blonde hair. Heavens to Betsy!
~ Although not a direct tribute, the artwork is reminiscent of the shrunken head character for GPK OS3 cards 119a NED Head and 119b Still JILL painted by artist John Pound. Although sewn shut, the piece shows the character's face with the same closed, heavy eyelids and a slight smile at death, which oftens happens when rigor mortis sets in and wrinkled, dried-up skin.

The tight sketch shows a similar looking character but having a sharper, more edgier feel and structure sitting upon a thick base with less blood spilling forth. The suggested nomenclature was IRA Maiden, which stuck, and 'Iron AIDEN'.
~ The HK3 image shows the iron maiden torture device sporting a curvier, more rounded, shape and shell, with full-length body doors and the victim's right arm still attached. The character's body shows several puncture wounds and some red-striped CPK shoes to match.

After his revival by the mystical crow, he takes on the gothic mantle of the Crow and is then guided by the crow to seek revenge. The crow giveth (life) and taketh away (eyeball).
~ The character is reminiscent of GPK OS4 cards 131a Stuffed STEVEN and 131b RUTHORFORD B. Hayes painted by artist John Pound as far as both characters having a crow perched on their arm and having had their left eye plucked out by the said crow, the HK's brown eye and the GPK's blue eye.

~ The alien being is sporting a 'Hot Rod!' 80's fashion button which pays tribute to the main protagonist, Nada (= 'nothing'), played by actor Roddy Piper, born Roderick George Toombs, but best known as "Rowdy" Roddy Piper, the ex-professional villain wrestler with the nickname "Hot Rod" for displaying his trademark "Scottish" rage and personality traits.
~ The artwork was originally created and submitted for the Gallery 1988 '30 Years Later (1988)' art exhibit show.

The peculiar trick-or-treater has buttons sewn on his sack for eyes (one currently missing), is grasping his bag of goodies, and chomping on a pumpkin-face sucker while creating a sharp-edged weapon from the half-bitten lollipop — also seen within the advertising for the movie.
~ The original rough concept had far less destruction to the burlap sack and only exposing one monster eyeball with the pumpkin sucker reversed, and the bite mark facing the character's mouth. The original nomenclature was jotted down as 'Trick R. PETE'.



~ REDRUM ~


  34a JOSS FERATU

~ The card image itself is on a grayscale, a range of gray shades from white to black, pictured in a monochrome display to play up the black and white movie with a B&W Horrorible Kids logo and gray nameplate.

~ The artwork is given a classic GPK-like gaping grimace mouth and shows the smoking release of "The Kandarian Demon", a force of pure evil, that controls the dead and Deadites in the movies.

However, instead of his red Mary Janes shoes he's sporting some red-striped CPK shoes.
~ The character is a wonderful tribute piece to GPK OS4 cards 152a Whisperin' WOODY and 152b VAN Triloquist painted by artist Tom Bunk. The dummy is holding the vantriloquist entertainer with a Freaky Friday type scenario of places being swapped. Pingitore's HK3 image also has the person usually pulling-the-strings and in control sitting on the dummy's lap.



~ REDRUM ~


  37a GORGON MORGAN

The suggested nomenclature was 'Medu SUE' and 'BLAIR Glare'.
~ The HK3 image shows Medusa being the victor over Perseus and holding his stonified head as he holds Medusa's in the Clash of the Titans movie. Although their is a GPK Gorgon-like character within the OS3 series, this is more of a direct parody.
~ The Gorons, a recurring rock-eating race in the Legend of Zelda series, is a play on the Greek word Gorgons.

  38a MANIAC MATT
~ Nomenclature = Matt; specific M name to go with the word 'maniac'.

def'n: Copper — informal. A police officer; law enforcement officer.

~ The killer cop character is seen in full uniform flashing his police badge, referenced as a 'badge of silence' in the third film which is reminiscent to the 'blue wall of silence' code, an internal and informal rule among officers not to report a colleague's errors, crimes or misconducts. The mugshot matches the time period after the first film once his waterlogged face is more rotten and decayed.
~ The color rough artwork for the copper concept shows the dead man in blue holding a black billy club instead of the patrol rifle that's seen in the final artwork and sketched out on the color rough. The billy club (aka cudgel, baton, night stick, etc.) is highly suggestive of his bad-cop ways and police brutality tendencies.

The sinister character is forcing a smiling, blood-red and white 'Raggedy Ann' doll into a meat grinder, complete with hand crank and table clamp.
~ The character is a wonderful tribute piece to GPK OS1 cards 18a Cranky FRANKIE and 18b Bad BRAD painted by artist John Pound, but most specifically, the original concept and color rough for the character that was revised to the GPK doll shredding several similar colored school books into the grinder for the final artwork and printed card image. Pingitore's image adds a splash more of red slasher blood to the artwork and finished product.

Although the sisters are two years apart, 8 and 10, families often dressed their offspring in similar, matching fashions in the 60s (and other eras).
~ Artist Mark Pingitore's tight pencil artwork foretells the foreshadowing of the shadows on the floor and the wonderful flower arrangement on the walls. The original nomenclature for one of the twin-like girls was jotted down as 'Double V. SHAUNA' instead of 'SHANA'.

~ Although the character isn't exactly a tribute piece to any specific GPK image, it's reminiscent of OS13 cards 511a Puffy BUFFY and 511b Busty DUSTY, painted by artist John Pound, who's seen modeling some post-training bra and stretched-out, fiber-tested pajamas.



~ REDRUM ~


  44a FURRY FRANK

This is no Petter Rabbit, no Petter Cottontail, no Engergizer Bunny... but a little like the troublemaker Bugs Bunny (carot, rabbit hole and all). The rabbit hole not present before the final artwork stage.
~ Frank's powers basically include the ability to travel through time in order to save the Primary Universe from destruction and speaking with the Living Receiver (Mr. Darko), but his villainous character also contains the personality trait of being corruptive by influencing others to commit petty crimes such as vandalism, arsony and accidental murder. A jacked-up rabbit.

~ The HK3 artwork shows the character sporting his velvet smoking robe or jacket, white glove(s) and neck scarf, but also sporting a pair of blue jeans and CPK shoes with red stripes. The bandages are wrapped more like the movie character, up over the bridge of the nose.

~ Pingitore painted the murderous mascot artwork for the backside of the March/April 2018 issue to help promote the HorrorHound Weekend in August; it was also used as a banner ad on their website.

The eyeballs of the monster are located on the palms of his hands, giving him a terrifying appearance when placed close to his face. An elaborate thrown-like chair is seen behind the character; placed at the head of the banquet hall table in the movie.
~ Pingitore painted the sallow, pallor creature for the October 2018 Philly Non-Sports Card Show to promote the yet unannounced and impending 2019 HK4 set as an exclusive promo card. The character will eventually find its way into the main set in sticker format.


DEFINITIONS TAKEN IN PART FROM THE AMERICAN HERITAGE DICTIONARY + WIKI











1. The first seven cards in the eighteen character set were initially released as limited edition Art Prints under the 'Slop Culture Kids' moniker; they were posted to Mark's website in March of 2016 for $70 and have since then sold out. A few of the character's names have slightly changed to the sticker line and Jason Voorhees has been given his mask to wear. The first time Horrorible Kids became available on sticker in sheet format was in the middle of 2016 also under Pingitore's 'Slop Culture Kids' clothing line (t-shirts) with the 'Horror Kids - Series 1' title. The package came '3 Sticker Sheets' for $10; these are still available on the Magic Marker Art website.




*


2. The Horrorible Kids T-shirts were available for Pingitore's aforementioned 'Slop Culture Kids' clothing line starting in October of 2016. Six different T-shirts were available in great dark colors; they were available on the Magic Marker Art website for $20.



**


3. Prior to the Horrorible Series 1 release on during October 2016, two months prior in August an Enamel Pin of 4a CHAIN SAUL was available for purchase for $13 from Cavity Colors website who partnered with Pingitore to release the limited edition quantity of 150 pins (which sold out fast). The second enamel pin released by Magic Marker Art is 1a ADAM N. EVIL from the Disasters of the Universe set with the pin backing being an ingenius replica of the card back; albeit, downsized to pin-size. The "CHAIN SAUL" pin was advertised as a sneak peek on Magic Marker Art's Facebook page.



*


4. The unofficial, online Promotional Material in the form of electronic pictures acted as ads for the Horrorible Kids Series 1 on social media in early October of 2016 for a Hallowe'en release date. The initial ad ran on Mark Pingitore's pages had the 'Halloween 2016' tagline and portrayed three previously published characters; note that 4a CHAIN SAUL and 4b MASS A. CARL now have a blue nameplate -- the purple nameplate does not appear in the set (bummer). The second and third 'sneak peek' preview ads were exclusive ads that could be found posted to GPKWorld and GeePeeKay social media pages and websites for the new images of 17a PENNY WISE and 18a AXIN' JACKSON, respectively. The 'Halloween 2016' was changed to 'October 24, 2016' for the actual and updated ad for both images. A decent price tag of $55 for the set; a great price when considering an independent release, vinyl material, die-cuts and some profit.



**


5. A Sneak Peek of the first vinyl card in the series, 1a MOMMA'S BOYD, as seen on top of the stacked set was posted to Magic Marker Art's Facebook page in anticipation for the upcoming Horrorible Kids Series 1 release.

The cardboard packaging is modeled after a Topps GPK wrapper with the logo, a yellow background, 'STICKERS' in bold with a white background, a series announcement (starting after the OS1 set) and '5 STICKERS • 1 STICK BUBBLE GUM' printed at the bottom.




**


7. Magic Marker Art (aka Mark Pingitore) took to Instagram on May 4th, 2017, to post a pin poll to see if collectors would care to see the character image for cards 1a Momma's BOYD and 1b Crystal LUKE realized as an Enamel Pin. A pin for 4a Chain SAUL had been previously released in 2016. A picture of the produced pins was posted to social media on June 19th, 2017 and stated that they would be available for sale on June 22nd, 2017, the same day as the Disasters of the Universe Series 3 set; limited to 150 pins printed.

8. An ad was placed on social media on June 12, 2017 for the Horrorible Kids Series 2 set, which is planned to be released in October of 2017 along with advertisements for two new Parody Sets by Magic Marker Art; Trash Former Series 1 to be released beforehand in August of 2017 and Star Warped Kids Series 1 to be released afterwards in November of 2017, both being humor sets poking fun at the Transformers and the Star Wars franchises, respectively.



**


9. An early Horrorible Kids Series 2 image was posted to social media on June 28, 2017 to promote the painting being a part of the Gallery1988 art show in July and stated a Promo card would be available opening day. The P1a Lost BOYD card image is a parody of the 1987 thriller movie titled The Lost Boys focusing on the David character (played by Kiefer Sutherland) during the infamous Chinese take-out scene. The promo card will be available at a later date through the Magic Marker Art online store (TBC).



*


10. Magic Marker Art (aka artist Mark Pingitore) took to social media, including Instagram, on July 22, 2017 to announce that a third Horrorible Kids soft Enamel Pin would be produced and released for the 5a HAL Raiser character; limited to 150 pins printed. The pin was released along side the Trashformers Series 1 cards on August 24, 2017.



**


11. A tight pencil and partial ink preview for two potential soft Enamel Pins were posted to social media on August 15, 2017.

The two characters are 3a PIA Soup and 3b Compelled CHRISTY from the Horrorible Kids card set plus 1a Commandin' BRANDON and 1b LEE Der from the G.I.JOKES car set. This would be the fourth enamel pin for the Horrorible Kids line. On September 18th, two additional pins were pictured with only the card backs for 4a Chain SAUL and 6a Masked MICHAEL. The three Halloween-advertisted pins were eventually released on 10/12/2017 for a $27 bundle or $10ea — all three limited to 150. This would be the second, slightly different release for 4a Chain SAUL, previously released by Cavity Colors a year ago.

In the midst of this, on August 29th, all nine Horrorible Kids 2 color roughs were displayed.



**


13. The first concept for The Ring parody gag of Pingitore's may stem from the 2006 release of the ANS5 GPK set by Topps that was not chosen for the set but may have become the inspiration behind cards 24a Ring SUE and 24b VEE H.S. within the Horrorible Kids brand.



*


14. On September 14, 2017, the card mock-up image for Horrorible Kids 2 character GINA Morph (= xenomorph) was posted to social media for card 23a in the series. The card contains a wonderful OS2 John Pound shout-out and the set continues the wonderful tombstone baring die-cut.

*


16. The third Horrorible Kids item that posted on 10/12/2017, and the second Sticker Sheet installment for Magic Marker Art, contained two 5x7 sticker sheets of nine characters from the Horrorible Kids Series 1 set, but different from the first 'Slop! Culture Kids' sticker sheet of six characters originally titled as simply Horror Kids. The package itself pokes fun at marked-down product found in yesteryears at K·B Toys (known as Kay Bee Toys until 1997 — closed in 2009) with a price tag sticker titled 'Kray Zee', the item is humorously marked-UP, contains the evil number-of-the-beast '666' and the recommendation 'For ages 45 and down'. The sheet was first hinted at as a Photoshop mock-up image posted to social media on September 6, 2017.

17. Magic Marker Art showcased several Rough Sketch ideas on 12/09/2017; Pingitore: "I've been busy working on commissions this month, but also taking some time to plan for 2018. Each of my sets start as rough sketches to visualize my ideas, and I jot down some names. I choose the ones I like and arrange them in a way that is visually pleasing. Here's a look at some roughs from four different upcoming 2018 sets (G.I. Jokes, Nintendopes, Thunderbrats, and Horrorible Kids)!" A Horrorible Kids Series 3 is on the horizon with a potential Annabelle (The Conjuring series) character parody.

**


21. In late March, on the 24th, Magic Marker Art posted a partial square image of the artwork that Pingitore painted for the HorrorHound publication: "I did this artwork for HorrorHound, featured on the back cover of the newest issue! Fun one to do." Collectors can find the horrorific image on the backside of issue #70 of HorrorHound, March/April 2018 to add to their collections; the page measures 8.5"x11". At this point, the artwork is not part of the Horrorible Kids releases, but ties in quite nicely with the horrorible theme. See 'Bits & BOBs' #33, #35 and #36 for additional updates. On close inspection, you can just make out the Garbage Pail Kids title not completely removed from the 'HorrorHoundWeedend' banner.



*


22. The first Horrorible Kids Series 3 Color Rough sneak peek was posted to social media on March 27th, 2018, a parody of 'The Crow' movie, just days after the HorrorHound Weekend artwork.

The box will contain 24 packs and the packs will contain 5 die-cut stickers with 90 different cards to collect.



**


25. Per Pingitore, "Some alternate box designs that I played with before deciding on Tarman." You can see the evolution of the early mock-up display Box Designs from the earliest template with the HK1 4a Chain SAUL character sawing through the '90 CARDS TO COLLECT' and purple spattered box color, to the HK2 20a Lost BOYD character with a black box color and blue-logo spattered background, and finally to the box starring the new HK3 28a Tarman CARMAN character that kept the black addition and the orange image background giving the box a wonderful Hallowe'en feel.

30. All good things must come to an end ... Magic Marker and its affiliate, artist Mark Pingitore, posted a fifth and final Horrorible Kids Series 3 Product Ad to social media on 06/04/2018 to notify collectors that the pre-order deadline ends on June 11, 2018 and would be the last day to place an order for the much anticipated HKS3 set and the HKS1 and HKS2 re-releases on new card stock. On 06/05/2018, Pingitore posted the card mock-up image for the previously released 6a Masked MICHAEL character showing the new stacked Horrorible Kids header and new trademark line that adds '- MAGIC MARKER ART, LLC'.

31. Magic Marker Art announced on 06/07/2018 that an eighth Horrorible Kids soft Enamel Pin would be produced and released for the upcoming, amazing and oozing 28a Tarman CARMEN card character; limited to 150 pins printed? The pin mock-up portrays the brand-new Horrorible Kids stacked header recently seen on the 11x17 mini-poster and HKS3 advertising. The pin officially went on sale on July 17th and could be added to pre-existing box pre-orders. The pin backing board has the tar on the left-hand side redacted and the nameplate mislabeled as TARMAN Carmen instead of Tarman CARMEN; corrected for the final product.

32. A nineteenth HK3 concept rough made it well into the conceptual phase of pre-production titled 'RAHUL Ghoul' but pulled prior to the tight pencil artwork statge and remains Unpublished. The piece was a parody of the 1984/5 comedy horror film Ghoulies where the main movie poster displayed an image of a toilet with a ghoulie standing inside of it. The plot involves a couple moving into an old mansion where the young man unleashes small demonic creatures during a ceremony at a party for a joke. Had a plunger been a part of the concept, it would be very reminiscent of the OS1 painting by artist John Pound for cards 14a Potty SCOTTY and 14b JASON Basin. It is unkown whethere the image will make it into any future release.



**


33. Pingitore's brilliant HorrorHound mascot image created for the Aug. 24th-26th 2018 show and found its way on the backside of issue #70 March/April 2018 of the HorrorHound publication, was placed on a 'HH2018' HORACE Hound promo card that was handed out at the show with any purchase and could be obtained after the show with any online purchase (while supplies lasted). The artwork is now officially part of the Horrorible Kids releases, which ties in quite nicely with the horrorible theme.



*


34. Thirteen new Horrorible Kids mini Posters, measuring 11x17 inches, were announced on social media on July 30th, 2018 and decided last minute in August and became available first at the Horror Hound Weekend in Indianapolis (Aug 24-26th) and later on the Magic Marker Art website on August 28th for $10.00 each. The posters were a limited edition of 50 copies and signed by the artist, Mark Pingitore, and include the following card character images: HK1 + HK3 1a through 6a (a re-print of sorts for the Slop Culture Kids art prints from 2016; minus 7a), 10a Good GUY, 17a PENNY Wise, 18a Axin' JACKSON, and HK3 28a Tarman CARMEN, 29a Preserved PAM, 32a TREY Live and 41a Thing JUAN; the 14th image of HK2 + HK3 20a Lost BOYD was available since April 2018.



**


35. The HorrorHound convention took place over the Weekend of Aug. 24th-26th 2018 in Indianapolis, Indiana during the dog days of summer. Pingitore's HORACE Hound parody mascot character found its way on the front cover of the stapled show guide, measuring 5.5"x8.5", which like the backside of HorrorHound magazine contains the 'HORROR HOUND' "PEEL HERE"-like arrow and the year '2018' for the card number. On close inspection, you can just make out the Garbage Pail Kids title not completely removed from the 'HorrorHoundWeedend' banner. The werewolf can also be as an enamel pin placed on a black-and-white backing board with his background environment from the artwork image; all three HorrorHound merch items were convention exclusives.



*


36. A separate HorrorHound mascot Promo Card was printed for HorrorHoundWeekend by the showrunners that displays the # '27a' on the frontside and '1 of 1' on the backside to mimic the OS1 pink backside of the Abrams GPK book promo cards; the oval nameplate contains the "HORRORHOUND™" moniker. The backside showcases the tight ink and color rough artwork production images by Pingitore along with a small write-up. On close inspection, you can just make out the Garbage Pail Kids title not completely removed from the 'HorrorHoundWeedend' banner on the front of the promo card.



**


37. A new Promo Card was revealed on 09/20/2018 as a premiere to Magic Marker Art's future Horrorible Kids Series 4 release, sometime in 2019, and in conjuction with the 69th/October Philly Non-Sport Card Show as an exclusive promo card. The first mock-up card image below showcases the color rough artwork with a nostalgic 'PEEL HERE' arrow and 'PNS2018' card number; an acronym for Philly Non-Sports. The second mock-up card image shows the final artwork with the arrow absent since the promo card is not printed on sticker stock with a card number of 'NSU2018'; an acronym for the Toser's sold publication Non-Sport Update. The numbering reverted back to 'PNS2018' for the finished card and as seen in the final promo card ad further below.



*

38. Phone cases became available for all 45 Horrorible Kids characters on September 27th, 2018 for $30 each. The cases were made to order and made out of high-quality polycarbonate: access to all ports, fade and scratch resistant, and vacuum-form printed. Phone cases were available for the iPhone (X, 8, 8 Plus, 7, 7 Plus, 6, 6 Plus, SE, 5 and 5c) and Galaxy (S9, S8, S7, S6 and S5).



**


39. Nine additional 'ALL NEW' Horrorible Kids mini Posters, measuring 11x17 inches, were announced and available on social media on October 31st, 2018 h for $10.00 each. The posters were a limited edition of 50 copies and signed by the artist, Mark Pingitore, and include the following card character images: HK1 + HK3 7a Silenced LAMBERT (the last re-print for the Slop Culture Kids art prints from 2016), 8a Dusk Til DAWN, 9a Beetle BRUCE, 15a Abnormal NORMAN, HK2 + HK3 24a Ring SUE, and HK3 31a Eerie ERIC, 33a RICK R. Treat and 39a Raggedy ANNABELLE and 44a Furry FRANK.



*


40. Mark's appreciation for parody and Garbage Pail Kids can be seen on his Magic Marker Art's website in the form of his personal Mascot, a self-caricature modeled after OS2 cards 74a MARK Bark and 74b Kennel KENNY painted by John Pound. This would be the first 'Mark' name in the GPK canon; Pingitore's character is biting down on a No.2 pencil instead of a dog bone.



*


41. It is fun to point out that the Horrorible Kids logo has a Skull dotting the 'i's muchlike the beloved 1985 film title The Goonies, except Pingitore has added a cross bone for the body of the 'i's as well.
