Official Press Release
Many people are familiar with Gloomy Bear: the cute pink bear with the big bloody claws. For the uninitiated, Gloomy is owned by Boy Pity who, despite constant abuse, loves him with all his heart (and haven’t we all cared for someone like that?). ?
Dark Horse Deluxe is proud to present seven brand-new products in the Gloomy Bear universe. Included are four different T-shirt designs (two for men retailing at $19.99, two for women retailing at $24.99) due out in late March 2007. Also coming in March a heat-sensitive mug (retails $14.99) that shows Gloomy giving a swift and bloody kick to his innocent owner, until you add a hot beverage . . . then you see the loving life that Boy Pity dreams of. Gloomy’s creator, Chack, has specially designed this mug for Dark Horse and it gets our cute-and-violent seal of approval! A journal (retails $9.99) and stationery set (retails $4.99) round out the new items, both designed by the creator and both due out at the end of this month.
Gloomy Bear wins every time! No matter how many times Pity imagines a peaceful life with his favorite bear, Gloomy reminds him of the harsh reality of their bear-to-human relationship.?
For the soft at heart and those with a penchant for lovable-but violent-bears, Gloomy Bear will be the perfect pick-me-up for a rough day.
