Halloween 2018
« on: September 01, 2018, 03:28:38 PM »
Well, September is here! And you know what that means...October is just around the corner...and that means Halloween will be here before you know it! So, what would the season be without a little treat for the forum faithful?! Presenting "Cleanup On Aisle 13", a new series featuring some of your favorite haunted products! Lots more details to come but here's a promo peek for the not-so faint of heart. Enjoy!


UPDATE 9/29/18:
Halloween "Cleanup On Aisle 13" 2018 Ordering Information:

Now that October is almost here, it's time for some Halloween fun! So, to get everyone in the spirit of the holiday, I'm offering an
all new series of product parody cards, called "Cleanup On Aisle 13"! They're based on some of your favorite candy aisle
products, but with a sinister twist - it's like candy gone bad (but in a good way)! And this year, I've decided to get some of my favorite artist friends to join in and make the set even more fun! "Cleanup On Aisle 13" features all new art by Jason Crosby, Robert Jimenez, Chad Scheres and myself as well as the outstanding writing of Paul Harris, Robert Hall and Mike DePaz!!! I think you'll agree, this is going to be one helluva set!

* + More Surprises!!!
* Sale Date Begins: SATURDAY, October 6, 2018 at Midnight (Eastern Time) and ends when sets are sold out.
* Ship Date: October 24, 2018.

$9.50 per pack (includes 1st class shipping to continental US). $18.00 per 2 pack purchase. $26.50 for a 3 pack purchase.

To order, send me your request in a PM and indicate how many packs you would like. Limit 3 packs per household. Available on a first come/first serve basis. I will send you a confirmation letter with payment information.

pics) as we get closer to the release date!

I'm extremely happy, but why is Topps allowing you to do parodies this year, where last year you had to cancel your Halloween parodies last minute?!

I can understand why you're curious, and although I would prefer to avoid politics in this thread, I will say this: The concerns over last year's Halloween set stemmed from one individual who evidently didn't like the idea of me producing them and contacted Topps about it.  Topps main concern was over what they perceived as similarities to the Wacky Packages look. There was a lot of points discussed and we maintained good communications, even if we didn't agree on every point. Ultimately, both parties agreed that it was in our best interest if I focused on my work with Topps. So, out of respect, I decided to cancel the 2017 Halloween set and continue working on Topps brands. For the 2018 Halloween release, I intentionally created a set with an entirely different identity, including the name and logo. But however unique it may be, my goal is to maintain a high degree of humor and artistic style that fans will find worthy of collecting for many Halloweens to come...

Enjoy!
Neil

PS - I have a special request: I'd like to focus on the new 2018 release in this thread, so if you want to comment further about last year's release, feel free to do so in a related discussion that can be found in the 2017 thread. Thanks in advance!

looks great, Neil!  I may have to give up waiting in the Pumpkin Patch this year for the Great Pumpkin
and wait for these instead!

Although I do think this could be the year the Great Pumpkin shows up.... I think I've been good.... yes?

Most excellent news!! Can't wait for these Halloween treats! Going door to door was never as much fun as the anticipation of your great creations is. Thanks for all your efforts. And they don't A) cause cavities or B) pull fillings from previous Halloween candy binges.

I don't check the forums much, but came by as it was the time of year for a Halloween set.  I hope I don't miss it.  I was sad when last year's set didn't happen.

With these artist types, it's always the same thing: delays and a complete disregard for the little man.  Instead, it's always attending gallery premieres, off to gala luncheons to hobnob with celebrities, then back by five to have cocktails with Jack Nicholson and Alice Walton.

Nah. I think Neil has locked himself in his private "sketchatorium" and will not surface until he has created enough masterpieces to make this set the best it can be!

I think he mentioned other artists helping, so there may be some coordinating and mailing going on.
