Both series have been written and painted by Garbage Pail Kids/Wacky Packages artist Joe Simko, so that right there should give you an idea what you're in for, but there's so much more! Each card mashes up a beloved breakfast cereal with a beloved horror movie in ways that will make your inner monster kid growl with delight!
|My favorite is Trix R Treat (bottom left)|
In addition to the ghoulishly groovy cards above, there is also a 10 card subset of B&W base cards that feature B&W movie classics like Plan 9, Nosferatu, and Dr. Caligari among others.
And what would a trading card set be without chase cards? There are Silver Spoon foil cards, Sugar Glitter cards (middle, left & center), Glow in the dark fluorescent stickers and sketch cards by various artists to be found.
Some of the card backs are part of a larger image you can put together, just like your favorite card sets from childhood. Some of the backs show an x-ray view of the box (middle, far right). A couple of the backs have the set checklist because, let's face it, as much as you like having the checklist, nobody actually enjoys seeing it when opening a pack!
The absolute best thing about these cards is that Wax Eye is having an all month Halloween 50% off sale! If you place an order this month and check out with code "trixortreat" you'll get half off any hobby boxes or 3 box sets.
No matter if you enjoyed GPK or Wacky Packages as a kid or you still enjoy them now, the Cereal Killers cards should be a must have for any horror fan!
