NEW TOYS POP STRAIGHT OFF THE PAGES OF DEVIL’S DUE
DDP launches new Devil’s Due Pop line with transformable toys from Jeffrey Brown and Top Shelf, Dirge figures from ‘Xombie,’ and plush toys from Shawnimals
Chicago, IL. (Feb. 21, 2008) – This March, comic book icons bounce out of the pages of Devil’s Due and into a new line of action packed life accessories called DEVIL’S DUE POP. Beginning with a package of classically retro Golden Age Sheena: Queen of the Jungle stickers, DEVIL’S DUE POP will include an array vinyl toys, personal journals, and usable artwork based on the properties that have made Devil’s Due Publishing one of the ten largest comic book publishers in the U.S.
DEVIL’S DUE POP expands in April with a Halloween journal covered with artwork from the Masters of Comic Book horror, such as Bill Sienkiewicz and Sean Phillips, who are covering Devil’s Due’s current Michael Myers miniseries Halloween: Nightdance. May will see the release of an original plush Geeky Ninja straight from the Ninjatown line by Shawnimals. Then, in June, DEVIL’S DUE POP will release its first vinyl figure based on Dirge from James Farr’s Xombie: Reanimated.
Still to come will be an original transforming vinyl toy from creator Jeffrey Brown, based on his Top Shelf comic The Incredible Change-Bots. First out will be Brown’s robot Balls, who transforms between his battle-ready robot guise into an unsuspecting golf cart.
DEVIL’S DUE POP brings the company’s mission to proliferate ComicCulture to new places and spaces, with plenty of vinyl toys and functional art product lines on their way in 2008.
