Massive Publishing and Printed In Blood Announce Exciting New Partnership Focused On High-End Artbook Releases

By Staff Reports

Printed In Blood, the boutique publisher who specialize in premium licensed artbooks, have entered into an exclusive distribution deal with Massive Publishing to service the direct-market and trade bookstores. Until now, Printed in Blood’s catalog of prestigious artbooks (including iconic titles such as John Carpenter’s The Thing, Aliens, Stranger Things, and Ghostbusters) were only available directly from the publisher and its crowdfunding campaigns. This new partnership is set to kick off in August with the highly anticipated retail release of two exquisite artbooks: Bernie Wrightson: A Tribute and the Hannibal: Artbook. These books promise to captivate audiences with their stunning visuals and devilishly charming content. Both titles are initially being offered as limited First Edition releases through Massive’s high-end collectables brand, Massive Select. 

“We have been looking for a solid distribution partner for some time and we felt that this partnership was the best fit possible for us as well as the added value of creating new opportunities for projects to produce together.” said Steven Hoveke, VP/Publisher for Printed In Blood.

Bernie Wrightson: A Tribute showcases over 220 pages of newly created artwork paying homage to the legendary artist Bernie Wrightson (co-creator of DC Comics’ Swamp Thing). With contributions from industry giants such as Mike Mignola, Steve Niles, Jim Valentino, Bill Sienkiewicz, Thomas Jane, Tim Bradstreet, Dan Panosian, Dan Brereton, Kyle Hotz, and more, this collection celebrates Wrightson’s enduring legacy in the realms of horror and sci-fi illustration. From his iconic illustrations for Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein to his groundbreaking work in comics and animation, Wrightson’s influence continues to inspire artists around the world. A portion of all proceeds go to the family of Bernie Wrightson.

The Hannibal: Artbook features over 200 pages of meticulously curated artwork inspired by the celebrated TV series “Hannibal.” With a breathtaking cover by the talented Chelsea Lowe, this fully licensed collection will immerse fans in the dark and mesmerizing world of Hannibal, portrayed by Mads Mikkelsen. Additionally, the book includes an all-new foreword by show developer and Executive Producer Bryan Fuller, along with an introduction from EP Martha Di Laurentiis.

We couldn’t be more excited that they are joining the Massive family.
