Edward Scissorhands comicbook

This may come as news for you - at least I had no idea about this - but there has been made few comicbooks about Edward Scissorhands! It is written by Kate Leth and the artwork is done by Drew Rausch. Cover by Gabriel Rodriguez.
     The one I got is issue #1 and the cover is black and white. For this first issue there are also three other cover choices. Altogether there are five issues of Edward Scissorhands comics done so far and you can buy them here.

 The story begins from where the movie ended and these comicbooks sort of continue the story from there. In my opinion, if Tim Burton would continue the story of Edward it wouldn't go like the one in these comicbooks. Though it's funny to see one version of how someone else thinks it could go.

 I bought this one just to see what is it like and though the plot is not so much to my liking I really do like the drawing style in this, it's nice and gloomy. I probably need to buy all the rest of these too.

What do you think?  How have you thought the story of Edward Scissorhands would continue?

Chocolate Factory trading cards

Couple weeks ago I did some eBay shopping and as a result these trading cards arrived on Friday. I bought Charlie and the Chocolate Factory trading cards, a complete basic set. There are also some collectible cards available, but those I have to buy separately.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory set has 90 cards that includes characters, scenes from the movie, a checklist and a title card. On the backside of each card there is some information.

I also bought one foil pack of these cards just to get the package for my collection. Every pack has 8 cards and there might also be a more rare special card included. There is also a collection album available for these cards and I have been hunting for it for years but no luck yet.
