Skelton Crew adds to ‘The Legend’
LITCHFIELD, Maine — Th3rd World Studios and Skelton Crew Studio are excited to announce a new partnership that will see Skelton Crew producing replicas and mini-busts from the New York Times best-selling comic “The Stuff of Legend.”
The book is written by Mike Raicht and Brian Smith and drawn by Charles Paul Wilson III.
“‘The Stuff of Legend’ frankly has it all,” said Skelton Crew Studio head Israel Skelton. “It’s a wonderfully written story with a cast of characters you quickly become attached to. And did I mention the art is AMAZING? I couldn’t be happier to bring these characters to the next dimension.”
A six-inch Jester mini-bust is slated for the first release in the new line in early winter 2014.
We couldn’t be more excited to be partnering with Skelton Crew for ‘The Stuff of Legend,’” said Th3rd World Studios co-publisher Michael DeVito. “The quality of their work and, more importantly, the level of respect that they show to the source material in bringing their replicas and collectibles to life shows a true dedication to their craft.
Planned future releases include a pewter replica of The Colonel and a Boogeyman mini-bust.
“The guys have been awesome to work with and I can’t wait to see what else we dream up,” Skelton said.

Israel and Charles will both be at BangPop comic con in Bangor, Maine next weekend.
