What can readers expect?
Bad jokes like:

Does the 666 on Damien Thorne's scalp mean he's the Devil?

No, it's his "Credit Score"!


Why was The Wolfman mad at his H.M.O.?

They wouldn't pay for his "flea dip"!


Where does H.P.Lovecraft like to shop?

Bed, Bath & "From Beyond"!


What coffee drink does The Phantom of the Opera like?

La lalalalalala, latte!


Sophomoric song parody lyrics like:

"My Zombie Valentine"
"Monsters in the Night"

And many, many more...

According to duo the book is acting as an introduction to the horror genre for newcomers while entertaining those already familiar with it. Jokes and illustrations about Frankenstein and Dracula to jokes about "The Manitou" and "Basket Case" even "The Human Centipede" are turning many a newcomer into a horror buff. The duo has heard feedback from readers that watched "Dead Snow" and some other notable films due to the book.

The jokes and song parodies have been used on horror podcasts like:

RueMorgue Radio
Screamwave Podcast
RottingFlesh Radio
Tomb TV with Tomb Dragomir

And more. This has helped to build a growing following of Maniacs(fans).

As the Emcee of Buffalo MonsterFest 2010, Monstermatt got a chance to field test his brand of humor-a mixture of Mad Magazine/Famous Monsters/Benny Hill/Borscht Belt Comedy finding that what produced groans from the audience felt delicious to him!
With Kaczmarczyk at the drawing pad, illustrating sight gags he knew they had something "ghoul" going on that could entertain, enlighten and grow on the reader.

Some notable names from the horror genre weigh in on the book:

"I wrote this blurb so Matt would stop the Pun-ishment."

"You can open any page of this book, read one line and feel intense pain throughout your entire body. I'm in awe."
