New edition of MUCHAS GRACIAS SEÑOR LOBO finally on its way

The new re-print and expanded volume of the book "MUCHAS GRACIAS SEÑOR LOBO" is finally on its way!! This is certainly great news. I discovered the old edition years ago but at the time it was already way out of print and I never found a second-hand copy. Well, lo and behold, a newsletter dropped thru my digital letterbox this morning; The new book is up for pre-order from the editor/publisher. He's also behind the cool fanzine CREEPY IMAGES which I've written about before. He's located in Deutschland but no need to worry, the book will be English friendly! (i.e. it'll have dual German and English text).

Here's some scans and info text that were posted on the CREEPY IMAGES site. I've already pre-ordered a copy as I so do not want to lose out on it again (and there's a discount). You can also pre-order from in the US but they have listed the book at 57 euros ($70) whereas the German publisher charges 35 euros. Even with the added postage it'll be cheaper for Americans to order from Europe!

Go to the website here and for more and bigger scans go here (it's a pdf file). The book isn't printed yet and the info text mentions they haven't proof read it yet which is probably a good thing (in "contents" I noticed it says, "The coloful world...", haha).

From CREEPY IMAGES website:

MUCHAS GRACIAS SEÑOR LOBO deals with the advertising material from the movie of one of the true icons of (European) horror movies: Paul Naschy and contains the largest collection of posters, lobby cards and other promotional items from his movies ever published.

MUCHAS GRACIAS SEÑOR LOBO focuses on Paul Naschy‘s horror movies of the late 1960s until the 1980s. 30 movies of this period will be featured in form of seperated chapters in the main part of the book while advertising material from his non-horror-movies and his newer films will be compiled in an additional chapter.
