I've collected monster cards since I was a kid. I enjoyed them so much, I eventually started my own card company, Monsterwax. I'd like to think I've produced some of the better monster sets in the last couple of decades. So it was rather humbling to encounter-- almost by accident-- Pablo's rare "Monsters" in Spain...
They blew me away! Of course, the first thing I thought was "we gotta unleash these creatures back home!" Only make them twice the size(2.5 x 3.5 inches), with twice the content (adding the incredible stories behind each monster on every card). Collectors will KILL for 'em!
Fortunately, Pablo was eager to invade the new world, and together with Monsterwax, a bold alliance was born.
So here we are, on the eve of a historic occasion: In 1492, Spain began the original conquest of America, using armies, religion, technology, and even disease to drive the natives into submission. Will it achieve similar success over 525 years later using monsters?
I'm not saying it's going to be pretty. (Monsters are usually quite ugly.) But if there's going to be a culture war, don't you want to be on the winning side? THIS is your chance!
You can be one of the Monster Masters, and not only enjoy the spoils of war, but also the pride of ownership... by owning one of the ultimate monster card sets! Yes, you can have these incredible Monsters from Hell at your fingertips, answering to your beck and call! Check out our rewards and you'll see the benefits of getting in on the ground floor. (Why be a follower when you can be a leader instead?) Join the Monster card army today!

From a cosmic Krampus series...
Different horror related series...
Everyone loves clowns (especially EVIL ones!)
From our very own Lovecraft series...
From our Monsters & Maniacs...
Can you say "Classic Monsters"?
More from our Monsters & Maniacs series...
A wide variety of famous horror flicks...

About The Story...
A lot of people don't care about the text on the back of cards... but WE do! And you won't find mindless filler on the backs of ANY Monsterwax cards-- EVER! (or on the fronts, for that matter). The point is, we love writing good stories, and Monsters From Hell is no exception to that rule. The backs to this series are not filled with monster gags, nor ads for mail order products, or limericks, or one sentence descriptions of the character on the front. No, that's too easy. Instead, Monsters From Hell tells a sci-fi mystery that involves a contagious madness that makes victims dream they are in hell, and the desperate things they do to escape the creatures that stalk them. The more you read, the more you'll want to know. And the more you know, the less you'll want to sleep...

Risks and challenges
Our record speaks for itself: All six of our previous Kickstarters were fully funded and all rewards were sent. Besides, wild horses couldn't drag me away from making this series. So unless a leftover chunk of space debris crash lands on my head, you can take this series to the (blood) bank! And in the unlikely event anything SHOULD happen to me, automatic refunds to all backers have been arranged-- so there is no risk to you. All the base card and metal card artwork is completed, allowing this project to be finished much faster than projects drawn from scratch. (Sketch cards are in production.) Any unexpected delays should be minor. The Monster marauders are coming... It's all over but the screaming!
