Artist Spotlight: Terry Wolfinger

My name is Terry Wolfinger and I am an Illustrator, Character Designer, and Concept Artist. I also create portraits of classic monsters and other pop culture icons. I’m currently one of the cover artists for Famous Monsters Magazine. I prefer to sketch with a regular old ball-point pen, though I do enjoy doing finished pencil drawings.

Harker’s Hits: Thursday Roundup

Wistful for your youth? Fear not! Hollywood continues to mine our memories and is bringing back many of our favorite childhood friends! • Expanding its universe even further, Netflix has announced a new children’s show based on the 1970s toy sensation Stretch Armstrong.

Points of Articulation: One:12 Collective Star Trek Figures

I’m certain I’ve mentioned this before but, when it comes to STAR TREK collectibles, there just aren’t as many as one would think. Compared to other intellectual properties such as Star Wars, Transformers, and even Universal Monsters, there just isn’t an equal Trek presence in the collectible world.
