Spotlight: Coloring Books for Grown-Ups


Coloring books for grown-ups are all the rage today, and for good reason: coloring is fun, inspiring, and super relaxing! Today, I have two very different coloring books for grown-ups to share with y'all...


The Vampire Combat Field Guide
(a coloring and activity book for for fighting the bloodthirsty undead)
by Roger Ma
Oct. 6, 2015
Berkley
In The Vampire Combat Manual, Roger Ma, the nation’s preeminent expert in undead warfare, prepared the average citizen to defend against a brutal vampire attack. But without appropriate training, even the most adept slayer of bloodsuckers can be left vulnerable.

Therefore, the Institute for Undead Combat Studies has once again created an essential practice handbook for anyone seeking to avoid serious injury, infection, or death at the hands of a vampire. This comprehensive guide includes:

*Detailed illustrations to aid in identifying various types of the undead and their vulnerabilities, as well as anatomical drawings you can color to promote knowledge retention

*Interactive mental and physical exercises that will teach invaluable fighting techniques and prepare you for battle

*Work pages to hone weapon selection, defensive and offensive techniques, and precise staking strategies

*and much more!

With the proper preparation, no one need fear death by exsanguination or an eternity spent in darkness. Learn to ward off these bloodthirsty creatures while you can—or say good-bye to your days in the sun…

*********************************************

Roger Ma's The Vampire Combat Field Guide ain't your average coloring book! This super smart how-to guide is as informative as it is entertaining and fun. Color your stress away while also preparing yourself for a vampire invasion. 

Roger Ma has filled this coloring book with everything and anything you need to know to deal with those pesky blood suckers. The illustrations are edgy, eye-catching, and have a very wicked graphic novel vibe. The handy info and lessons are interesting to read and will captivate the imagination. 

This coloring book is a perfect way to destress this Halloween and would make an awesome and engaging party activity. 

Roger Ma specializes in hand-to-hand combat against the undead. He is the author of The Zombie Combat Manual: A Guide to Fighting the Living Dead,The Vampire Combat Manual: A Guide to Fighting the Bloodthirsty Undead,The Zombie Combat Field Guide, and The Vampire Combat Field Guide. He is the founder of the Zombie Combat Club and the Vampire Combat Club, organizations that focus on battling the undead without the aid of a firearm. He was recently featured as a zombie expert on the History Channel documentary “Zombies: A Living History.” He currently trains in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

Yes, I remember reading the Highlights magazine. Do they still publish them? I love seeing all these coloring books coming out. My favorite so far has been the Secret Garden one, and another with owls on each page.
