CBCS Horror Movie Covers: Child’s Play
October 25th is National Chucky the Notorious Killer Doll Day. I guess there really is a National Day for anything. So, I thought it would be cool to release this week’s Horror Movie Covers a day early. Here’s to everyone’s favorite murderous doll, Chucky. Let’s get started with the CBCS Horror Movie Covers: Child’s Play edition.
Child’s Play The Series #5
The Child’s Play series isn’t the first time Chucky appears in comics, but it’s a great jumping-off point here. The five-part series is a set of original stories featuring Chuck. Starting in May of 1991, Innovation brought in different writers and illustrators to work on the project. In December of that year, Andy Mangels and Raine Szramski were tapped for Child’s Play The Series #5. The covers across the series are great, but book #5 stands out to me with Chucky’s reflection in the blade.
Child’s Play 2 #1
In January 1991 is when readers first see Chucky in comics. Another Innovation publication produced this comic adaptation of Child’s Play 2. The official adaptation if you are keeping track at home. It’s a very 90s cover if you ask me. A perfect take for the era.
Hack/Slash vs Chucky #1
In 2007 Devil’s Due published the one-shot Hack/Slash vs. Chucky. Written and illustrated by Tim Seeley, this book follows the Seed of Chucky movie. The story features Vlad and Cassie Hack battling it with Chucky.
Devil’s Due Publishing also released a limited four-issue series called Chucky in 2007. As one would assume, this series is based on the Child’s Play franchise. Chucky #1 was written by Brian Pulido and illustrated by Ryan Ottley. Mr. Ottley was in the midst of his Invincible run at the time but would go on to work on Amazing Spider-Man, The Walking Dead, and many other popular books.
Well, there are just four books on this week’s CBCS Horror Movie Covers: Child’s Play edition. However, I think these four represent this franchise well. Also, make sure you check out the Halloween edition from last week. Finally, as we close October, make be on the lookout for a few more these before the week’s end.
