During their panel at SDCC today, Action Lab Entertainment announced that they have secured the rights for the classic horror series, Puppet Master. The series will be written by Shawn Gabborin while the series will be penciled by a large selection of as of yet unannounced artists, all handpicked by Puppet Master creator Charles Band.
For those unfamiliar with the series, it tells the story of Andre Toulon, an elderly puppet maker who finds an ancient Egyptian that he uses to bring his puppets to life. Fleeing Germany during WWII, Toulon seals his puppets away and kills himself to protect his secrets. Years later the dolls are brought back to life, including fan favorites Blade, Jester, and Tunneler, and cause a gory mess wherever they go.
