We were first introduced to John Gilliland's Court of the Dead from Sideshow Collectibles at Monsterpalooza. That was just a teaser compared to the presence at San Diego Comic Con. We were lucky to run into creator John Gilliland at the Sideshow booth and get our Court of the Dead poster signed.
First thing you should know is that this just isn't Sideshow Collectibles putting out a group of themed statues. The Court of the Dead is original content created by John Gilliland. In the war between heaven and hell, Death has created the Court of the Dead consisting of the factions Bone, Spirit and Flesh. The factions all very different, stand together against the forces of heaven and hell that seek to destroy.
On the Court of the Dead site, you can learn more about each of the factions and even take a quiz to see which faction, Bone, Flesh or Spirit, is your destiny. There is even a downloadable graphic novel on the site that documents Death's creation of the Court.
Now that you know a little more about the story. Let's check out the Court of the Day characters that were brought to life and present at San Diego Comic Con showcase in the Sideshow Collectible booth.
