When Alan Robert isn’t busy with his band Life of Agony he shines in his alter ego of Alan Robert, comic book creator. With his growing collection of titles from publisher IDW, such as Crawl to Me, Wire Hangers, Killogy and The Shunned One. All of which he wrote and drew, he’s found time to make an amazon best seller coloring book. Just in time for the Halloween season, The Beauty of Horror: A GOREgeous Coloring Book.
To promote the release of his colouring book, he’s spent the month of October hitting all the major north-east conventions. Making stops at New York Comicon, Worcester MA for Rock and Shock Festival, and New Jersey for the Chiller Theatre Convention. Life Of Agony also made a huge appearance at this years Rock Carnival festival and another headline gig in Clifton Park, NY. With at that going on he made time to have a proper book release party and signing in Soho at the Dr. Martens store.
The evening was filled with free food and drinks as Alan signed books, took pictures and drew original pieces. The place was packed fans covering the spectrum of his career. You could walk passed conversations about his music, to his comic and up coming movie adaptions of his work. His cousin and LOA frontwoman, Mina Cuputo as was in attendance to show all important support of the family. Stuffed with empanadas and tacos, the crowd stayed to watch Alan create. Watching a blank canvas, this time a pair of boots, turn into massive display of art was truly an amazing sight to witness. With new music coming, a best seller on Amazon, and more of his work on the rise, the world of Alan Robert is a pretty good place to be in right now.
