I’m aiming to make 2019 the year of the Midnight Widows.
For a while now, I’ve been working with illustrator Marcela Hauptvogelova and a number of other artistic collaborators (including Delia Mihai, who painted the lovely illustration to the right) to create a horror comic about the exploits of Dracula’s brides. Now that their groom has been destroyed, the Widows are unleashed upon the world to cause as much mayhem as they desire.
I’ll admit that the comic’s had a slightly bumpy ride so far. It was partly serialised in Belladonna magazine during 2017, but this was cut short by the magazine’s end. I planned to launch a crowdfudning campaign in 2018, but various things got in the way and it never happened.
But this year, I’m going to make friggin’ sure that the campaign comes to pass. It’s on track to launch this spring, and I’ve pulled some friends together to help it get off the ground.
If all goes to plan, 2019 will be the year when Edith, Kateryna and Gabriela finally see the light of day (or dark of night, if they prefer) in the pages of Midnight Widows.
