La Mastication du Vampire dans son Tombeau

In case you can read french, you could check out the two new versions of the book! It is really a pleasure to see my work translated in french, since a lot of my favorite books originate from the french speaking side of Europe. I wish that the readers who invest their hard-earned money on our book, will enjoy our new take on the nightmarish tale of Dracula. 

The version above has a different cover from the english version (19cmx25cm) but I would say that it looks interesting. In case that this small beast is not enough, with some euros more you could have a much bigger sized edition (28cmx20cm) which contains an interview of the creator and an amazing Pin-up that Vassilis Gogtzilas made for our book.

Better late than never eh?

Finally, I took some time to update my Amazon Author's Page. Hell, I even took some time to write here. Maybe someday I'll overpass my fear of talking about myself and update more than once per year:-)

Do you have a wish?

Together with Vincenzo we work on a new book. For the time being I cannot reveal too much but I couldn't hold myself. So here you are:

La mastication du vampire dans son tombeau!

Holy Cow! Our book 'The Fang' is ready for France!
Pay a visit to Wetta and check out their amazing work!

Dracula n’est pas mort en Europe. Il aurait traversé l’Atlantique à bord de l’Erebus pour rejoindre l’Amérique. C’est là, dans ce nouveau monde où tout est à construire, qu’il a décidé de s’installer et d’étancher sa soif de sang. Lorsque Van Helsing entend parler de l’arrivée d’un vaisseau fantôme au port de New York, suivi d’une série de meurtres mystérieux, il comprend que la chasse doit reprendre.

Nothing Can Stop Me Now is an anthology of comic book stories inspired by the songs of the Nine Inch Nails as a tribute to the band. I participate with a four page comic drawn by Vassilis Gogtzilas in this anthology book that is now live on Kickstarter.

The Fang

My absolutely favorite page of our last book 'The Fang'.

Here Christos Martinis' art is breathtaking. The original script described Dracula attacking a woman, but Christos' sick :-) imagination gave her some more details that I do not even feel comfortable to describe. After all, horror is not about a vampire biting a neck but about the small details of the tortured body.

Of course exaggerating with lines and color is a beautiful way of stretching reality. Since this specific feeling of being real-so even more horrific cannot be achieved by the absolute depiction of truth it can surely be done by twisting, enlarging or covering what looks real. After all what do you think is scarier? A witch that tries to grab you while sleeping, or a witch  who stretches her arms like two grotesque macaronis in order to tickle your feet?

Both me and Christos found out that the only thing that could look scarier than a hungry, hunted vampire  would a vampire that from time to time looks a bit unnatural. His face can be distorted, his mouth becomes bigger and his fangs can be stretched beyond our logical limits. And what is more terrifying than facing a monster that could never even be considered to have ever been real.

A page from our new project. I really enjoy Vincenzo's experiments with line and form. I feel very proud of working with him. In fact this is a project where both of us are absolutely free to follow a futuristic fantasy fairy-tale and use our words and colors in order to explore a world full of magic and adventure. Slowly we will share more information but for the time being let us enjoy this out of this world sunset!
