Action Draculas is Here!

Are you ready to Draculize? This Halloween, Mystery Ranch and Monsterface Industries present:


Announcing Action Draculas! An all-ages, full-color read-along storybook, read by a full voice cast with a musical score by Uncle Monsterface! Premiering digitally on Uncle Monsterface’s Youtube THIS HALLOWEEN!

A retro format with a modern sensibility, this book features an original story and painted art by Action Draculas creator Jesse Farrell, with a full-cast voice featuring legendary character actor Mike Starr in a read-along recording, and a musical score and sound design by nerd rock legends Uncle Monsterface.

Part 1 premieres October 31, 2023 on Uncle Monsterface’s Youtube!

Action Draculas tells the story of four ordinary high school students who find Dracula’s magical amulet, which grants each one of them one of Dracula’s powers. When the evil record promoter Don Pteranodon and his army of monsters threaten the students of Harker High’s Battle of the Bands contest, it’s up to the Action Draculas to stop him. Can they use evil… To do good?

Features Marty in the cast, Dan wizarding the sound design, and original score by Uncle Monsterface. Get ready for action!

Marty Wrote A Book with A Bunch Of Monsterface-y Art In It

Hi this is the Very Big Announcement (or VBA)l! Marty from Uncle Monsterface is self-publishing his first novel! Wahhhh?!

Welcome to Theodore Thursdays! Are you ready to get awesome?

Beginning September 7, 2023, Marty is releasing one new chapter of the first novel in his book series Theodore & the 7 Layers of Space. Book 1 is called Brick & Bird. Check out the cover!

There are two ways you can access Marty’s book. The first is via a free app for phones or desktop called Wattpad where the community is awesome, his illustrations are supported and it’s free for you to access and enjoy!

The second is via Marty’s new Patreon, where you can directly support him as an artist and storyteller while getting yourself access to an ad free copy of the book, and get exclusive behind the scenes videos, songs, discounted merch and more awesomeness!


Brick & Bird is the sprawling story of a lonely boy who goes on an amazing adventure full of time dragons, old timey automatons, Magician Detectives, sock puppets…

By the way and secretly… even though the book stands on its own, ALL of the work that Marty does as a creator, from UNCLE MONSTERFACE to small sock puppet portraits to songs to theatrical plays to books, has a story to tell, and all of it comes from this one big world of stories – The 7 Layers of Space! You’re there, too!

Return of Adventure Pizza

We’re thrilled to announce that we’ll be presenting “(A Slice of) ADVENTURE PIZZA” as a part of La Mama’s Puppet Slam, February 16-19.

It’s a short excerpt from our ever-growing work-in-progress Choose-Your-Own Rock Show created by Marty Allen, Leigh Walter, and Dan Brennan for Monsterface Industries.

This is an extension of the toy theater puppet show we presented as a part of the Object Movement Puppetry Residency as a Twitch stream in 2020, presented for the first time in a live setting alongside a whole pile of other awesome short puppet performances!

We’re so honored to bring this to the legendary La Mama stage and can’t wait to share this stage in its evolution. Please come out, we’re up for several nights! There are a few genuine branching paths, so it’s possible to see a different little show each time!

We’re back on Spotify!

Hi team!
For the first time in many years, go find our first full length, Letter Green (I Love You) on Spotify, Apple Music, and all major platforms! Hooray!

For the newsies:
Monsterface Industries continues to stir like several ponies (in the night), hopefully here on time to bring a little smile and a confusing dance during these wild times.

Truth time: over the years, we let all of our albums lapse from the major streaming services. News time: as of today, we’ve begun to remedy this calamitous reality, one little album at a time, in order.

Please follow us on whatever your streaming service of choice is, and bear with us as we get all the platforms and profiles aligned.

Give everyone you know a Monster Hug, here’s one from us!

Ever your loyal,
Uncle Monsterface
