Cool and Collected

Action figures go from the toy box to the treasure chest

These days Denny is trying to decide where he is going to display his new set of action figures sculpted by Spawn creator Todd McFarlane. The Canadian comic book artist, who parlayed his skills into a lucrative toy franchise, is producing Clive Barker's Infernal Parade and Twisted Fairy Tales.

Infernal Parade is based on a gruesome bunch of carnival characters from the man who brought us Lord of Illusions. The other action figures are McFarlane's macabre and sadistic interpretations of children's favorites, such as Peter Pumpkin Eater, who carries a bloodied ax and a pumpkin stuffed with an unfortunate victim's body parts. "I've always loved Clive Barker," Denny says. "I see the Infernal Parade and Twisted Fairy Tales as pieces of art. They are pretty bizarre, but I'm a bizarre person myself."

Denny may end up relocating his vast DVD and VHS collection, which he catalogues by genre and alphabetical order, to his living room so he can accommodate his toys.

Renee finds her husband's latest collection a bit disturbing. "That stuff is a little morbid for me," she admits. "I prefer his anime statues. Those are cool."
