Pill Hill Press, is pleased to announce an official scheduled release for Monstermatt’s Bad Monster Jokes Vol.1 written by Monstermatt Patterson, illustrated by Kyle Kaczmarczyk, with an introduction by Joe Moe and an afterword by Pat Tantalo, for their non-fiction imprint, WestNeb Books.
WestNebBooks acquired the book from it’s previous publisher, during a brief and successful run, with both critics and readers alike. Some changes have been made to the book, including some added content.
Monstermatt’s Bad Monster Jokes Vol.1 (ISBN #978-1617060946), is a self described collection of over 400 badjokes, rancid rhymes, putrid puns, and sophomoric song parodies, with illustrations focused on horror films, monsters, sci-fi, superheroes, and some pop-culture for good measure.
No,it’s his “Credit Score”!
They wouldn’t pay for his “flea dip”!
Bed,Bath & “From Beyond”!
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. From jokes and illustrations about Frankenstein and Dracula, to jokes about “The Manitou” and “Basket Case”, and 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:
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!
