Dark Hall Mansion To Release Will The Real Martian Please Stand Up Print By Dave Perillo On June 30, 2015

Dark Hall Mansion in conjunction with its ongoing officially licensed “The Twilight Zone” subscription series, is very pleased to reveal our next guest-artist TZ release: “Will The Real Martian Please Stand Up,” by leading contemporary artist, Dave Perillo. A charming and wacky piece that riffs in 12″ x 12″ vintage LP record cover format on a terrific and classic “Twilight Zone” episode, we think you’ll agree Dave’s artwork perfectly suits the somewhat manic quality of this humorous yet pensive episode.

Dark Hall Mansion, under license by CBS Consumer Products, will release Dave Perillo’s new “Will The Real Martian Please Stand Up” limited edition prints next Tuesday, June 30th, 2015.

Artist Dave Perillo brings to bear the influence of one of his, and DHM’s, favorite artists, the enormously influential, Jim Flora. Flora’s unique and highly stylized jazz and pop record cover artwork of the ’40s and ’50s exploded with color and hyper-stylization influencing generations of illustrators in all fields, and Dave Perillo has done him justice! Formatted to appear as the vintage record cover you might always have wanted but not known existed, his 12″ x 12″ “Will The Real Martian Please Stand Up” has all the earmarks of a classic jazz inflected cover from the ’50s while creatively rendering this classic TZ episode’s entire story arc and twist ending in one dynamic piece.

Dave’s standard edition hits all the right notes with its vintage LP color palette, one that not only tells the tale but brings forth some very special record cover artwork, from a unique locale indeed-one of sight, sound and mind, and one from where you might just see future Twilight Zone record cover offerings emanate from. To compliment, Dave’s Variant edition pops right off the cover with a color explosion that feels at once slightly frenetic and all cool jazz. There’s also two select wood editions based on the Standard and Variant colorways.

Dave Perillo’s Standard and Variant editions will first be made available for advance separate purchase to subscribers of DHM’s ongoing 10-print “Twilight Zone” subscription series (details of which are available here: http://www.darkhallmansion.com/?p=2269) And YES! Anyone purchasing a DHM “Twilight Zone” subscription series (while subscriptions last here: http://darkhallmansionstore.com) will be assured a reserve spot with the right, though not obligation, to separately purchase Dave Perillo’s “Will The Real Martian Please Stand Up” print. Purchase of DHM’s Standard edition “Twilight Zone” subscription series entitles the buyer to all 10 prints in our TZ series (further details in DHM’s blog here: http://www.darkhallmansion.com/?p=2269) plus the right to separately purchase Dave’s standard edition “Will The Real Martian Please Stand Up” print. Similarly, a purchase of the Variant “Twilight Zone” subscription series entitles the buyer to all 10 Variant prints in our TZ series, plus the right to separately purchase Dave’s Variant “Will The Real Martian Please Stand Up” print. Wood editions will be available only on the general sale day, next Tuesday, unless you’re one of our select “Twilight Zone” foil subscription holders in which case you’re assured the right to separately purchase one of Dave’s “Will The Real Martian Please Stand Up” wood editions. Yes, there are a few foil edition TZ subscriptions still available, just inquire with us at: info@darkhallmansion.com for further details.

Dave Perillo’s “Will The Real Martian Please Stand Up” Standard edition will price at $35, his Variant edition at $50, and the select wood editions of just 10 at $95.

“Will The Real Martian Please Stand Up” Standard edition of 280: $35

“Will The Real Martian Please Stand Up” Variant edition of   50: $50

“Will The Real Martian Please Stand Up” Wood edition of 10 (based on Standard edition colorway) $95

“Will The Real Martian Please Stand Up” Wood edition of 10 (based on Variant  edition colorway) $95

Shipping is $15 for anywhere in the US or $25 worldwide.

Disney Announces New Animated Series Based On Tangled

Disney has announced that a new animated series based on their popular animated film Tangled will debut on the Disney Channel in 2017!

Most of the major voice and musical talent from the 2010 hit will return, including Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi reprising their roles of Rapunzel and Flynn Rider (nee Eugene), as well as new songs from Academy Award-winning composer Alan Menken and lyricist Glenn Slater. Clare Keane, daughter of Disney Legend Glen Keane (who served as an animation supervisor on Tangled), consulted on the series.

Also making the leap to the small screen are fan-favorite characters like Rapunzel’s chameleon sidekick Pascal, the uppity horse Maximus, the thugs from the Snuggly Duckling Pub and a brand new character: Cassandra, described as “a tough-as-nails handmaiden, who becomes Rapunzel’s confidant.”

The series is set to take place in between events of the feature film and the 2012 short film Tangled Ever After. Apparently there were a lot of adventures that Rapunzel and Eugene got into in the time in-between.
