This kickass shirt from Electric Zombie is only $10 and it is a final print, meaning once it sells out, it will never be made again. Talk about a no brainer purchase! Thanks for alerting me to this one, Kristy.
Greg Taylor delivers some fun, frightful fare in this high-concept debut novel. Fourteen-year-old Toby Magill, a closeted Food Network junkie, gets a summer job flipping dough at Killer Pizza. Hoping to learn some cooking skills, Toby is optimistic about his new position, and he instantly bonds with his two co-workers. However, the teens soon discover that the establishment is actually a front for a secret monster-hunting organization, and they are the newest recruits. Their focus shifts from making pizza to weapons training and stakeouts as they try to uncover the leader of a pack of grotesque monsters that can transform into human shape and are preying on innocent people. Clearly, this is not the job for which Toby applied. Always the underdog, he has to muster up the courage to take on these frightening creatures.
There are two reasons I picked up this book from Amazon the other day. The obvious first reason is that it sounds fuckin' awesome, like a new age R.L. Stine book. The second reason is because it was just announced last week that the book will be turned into a film, with Adam Green at the helm! Green is one of my favorite filmmakers out there and the thought of him tackling a Monster Squad-esque kids in peril tale like this one makes me all kinds of excited. Is it just me or does this have potential to be one of the most fun movies of all time? For now, I can't wait to delve into the book.
