For years, we've been proud to share "Ghoulish" Gary Pullin's essential horror artwork with Daily Dead readers, and last year we were thrilled with the publication of Ghoulish: The Art of Gary Pullin, a retrospective book collecting some of Pullin's most memorable artwork alongside writing by April Snellings. To celebrate the forthcoming one-year anniversary of Ghoulish: The Art of Gary Pullin's publication, we can exclusively reveal that 1984 Publishing is releasing a 2nd edition of the book on May 7th, and we've been provided with a look at the new cover and the special "Prowler Edition" 3-D print.
Ghoulish: The Art of Gary Pullin 2nd edition with the Friday the 13th Part 3 cover is limited to 1,000 copies, while "The Prowler Edition" with the 3-D print and branded glasses is limited to 200 copies.
We have details on how to pre-order both versions below, as well as a look at Pullin's killer artwork for both versions of the 2nd edition!

For more than ten years artist Gary Pullin has been taking art galleries, movie theater walls, and social media by storm with his fresh, inventive takes on film, music, and television properties. Equal parts nightmare and nostalgia, his instantly recognizable style always strikes a chord with fans, and his coveted and acclaimed pieces sell out in lightning speed.
A go-to artist for official film artwork, concert merchandise, LP packaging, and endless other pieces of pop culture ephemera, Pullin has put pencil to paper for film posters such as Friday the 13th, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Halloween, The Big Lebowski, Vertigo, and The Babadook, soundtracks including Creepshow, Scream, Christine, and Tales from the Crypt, and concert merch for the likes of Jack White, Alice Cooper, and Misfits.
Featuring hundreds of full-color illustrations, lavish cover galleries, and never-before-seen concept and process shots, Ghoulish: The Art of Gary Pullin is both a celebration of one artist's remarkable career and an indispensable snapshot of the thriving world of genre art. Go behind the scenes with Gary, let your jaw drop at his brilliant, long out of print artwork, and get ghoulishly inspired by an unforgettable pop artist.
