An older story just making the rounds is sure to give our seasoned readers a solid punch to the gut….
Publisher HarperCollins is gearing up to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Alvin Schwartz’s book series “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark”, a short stories collection that was accompanied by haunting artwork by Stephen Gammell.
Honoring the 30-year-old collection, HarperCollins is butchering the visuals by replacing all of Gammell’s work with new imagery by Brett Helquist. That would be like digitally fixing Jaws in Steven Spielberg’s classic film, or even worse, digitally adding new creatures to one of the classic Star Wars films (oh, wait.)
In addition to the above example, you’ll find a few more after the break, courtesy of Adventures in Poor Taste. HarperCollins can suck an egg.
