VANITY (2017) Graphic novel

VANITY (2017) Graphic novel   VANITY - being a gothic tragedy in nine acts - is based on the life and deeds of Hungarian Countess Elizabeth Bathory (1560-1614), listed in The Guinness Book of Records as the greatest murderess in the history of mankind. According to legend, she was convinced that drinking and bathing in the blood of young virgin girls would preserve her youth and beauty. However, the historical documents tell us a slightly different yet far more mysterious and sinister story. Written by Jurii Kirnev Illustrated by Natalia Tsarevnikova Introduction by Mark Rein-Hagen Cover art by Abigail Larson Language: English Pages: 280 ISBN: 978-615-80812-0-7 http://juriikirnev.com/vanity/

FALLEN IDOLS "CONCEPTION"

frame 1
So I'm making another blog post, almost less than a day after the first one I posted but I thought I'd strike while the iron is hot since I'm new here. Thought I'd talk about a few things here today: my work in progress and STEP 1 of making a comic book "conception".   WORK IN PROGRESS: So as you may know, I'm working on a Comic book, specifically the second issue to the one I just published on etsy.com. Currently I'm working on page 3.  keep in mind the first panel is no where near what I'd call complete, but this gives the opportunity to talk about how I do things. Since I'm using Inkscape which is a free version of Illustrator , when I'll draw something, anything really, I'll then save it into a archive library. This library contains ever pose of all characters, backgrounds, animals, plants, furniture,...

The Indie Index - Interview with Theodore Riddle

cover2002
I'm just putting it out there that this is the most in-depth interview that I've ever been a part of. Theodore Riddle is a person who clearly knows what he wants and goes for it, tooth and nail. Here's the interview, please enjoy!   Hey Theodore! First things first those those who may not know you, tell us a little about yourself. A misconception about Monolith Comics is that I am a Publisher which I am, but I am mainly a self published artist. Monolith Comics is just the imprint under which I have established my business for tax reasons to self publish my creation entitled Compu-M.E.C.H., Mechanically Engineered and Computerized Hero® and the universe which surrounds the story. I have done all the writing, penciling, inking and lettering of all of my twenty-seven 128 page black and white graphic novels. This has been the effort of twenty years worth...

The Indie Index - Interview with Alex Maday

FB IMG 1518187533241
Kaiju Gods looks to be one heck of a comic book anthology. The anthology includes the work of creators who are quite prominent within the indie comics industry. It really is a who's who of indie creators in Kaiju Gods - sadly, I think my invite to write a story was lost in transit - and the work that has gone into the anthology is astounding. Anyway, I was strong-armed by A. Shay Hahn into interviewing Alex Maday, so what choice did I really have?  Hey Alex! First things first, for those who may not know you, tell us about yourself. My name's Alex Maday and I write comics including Mongrel City Rumble which I share with artist Charity Buhain.    You’ve spearheaded the organisation of a comic book anthology called ‘Kaiju Gods’, how did the idea come about? I've always wanted to make an anthology but never had a...

The Indie Index has interviewed a handful of creators and it's came to our attention that we've not interviewed many female comic creators as of yet (some interviews pending). People started recommending extremely talented female creators by the masses. Here's an interview that many people asked for with the esteemed Madeleine Holly-Rosing. Enjoy!   What are you currently working on? I’m currently running a Kickstarter for my comic Boston Metaphysical Society: The Scourge of the Mechanical Men. For those not familiar with it, the original six issue series was about an ex-Pinkerton detective, a spirit photographer, and a genius scientist who battle supernatural forces in late 1800s Boston. The Scourge of the Mechanical Men is a 34 page standalone continuation of the series featuring Granville Woods and Tesla.  We are wrapping up production. It’s with my letterer and should be in the hands of my pre-press guy shortly. I also wrapped...

Interview with INFIDEL Creators Pornsak Pichetshote and Aaron Campbell

Infidel2
March 2018 sees the release of the hugely anticipated horror story INFIDEL published by Image Comics. We caught up with creators Pornsak Pichetshote and Aaron Campbell to discuss love, race, Islamophobia and things that go bump in the night! GG: Before we talk about your latest project, can you tell us about your backgrounds? How did you guys break into comic books? Pornsak: I pretty much fell ass-backwards into comics. At the time, I was a writer / filmmaker freelancing on NYC indy film sets with no intention of working a 9-to-5 when I heard about an opening at Vertigo Comics, working as Karen Berger’s assistant editor. I only took the interview so I could say I met Karen, since I was such a big fan of hers and Vertigo. I honestly wasn’t really interested in the job. I just wanted to keep freelancing on film sets and eventually become a...

The Indie Index - Indie Character Showcase

piece1
I've been thinking a lot about the blood, sweat and tears that creators put into the creative projects and why people enjoy them as much as they do. Characters are often what people relate to and helps keep them fully invested in a story. So, I put the question out into the wide, wide world and asked: What is your favourite indie comic book character and why?       Kevin Joseph: I just met Tim Stiles' Knockaround Guy today and he was badass. I also really dig Icicle from Josh Dahl & Shawn Langley’s Rapid City: Below Zero. Knockaround Guy works because the absurdity of a talking gorilla working with a mime is juxtaposed by pretty straight noir narration. Icicle works because she’s had everything taken away from her and she has no interest in getting what she lost back. She’s only interested in making the person who did it pay....

Rok of The Reds - Interview With John Wagner

rok of the reds 6 0
Geek Genie caught up with legendary comic book creator John Wagner to talk about the 2018 slated sequal to "Rok of The Reds". Get ready for aliens, action and football!    GG : For those who didn’t pick up the first series, can you tell our audience a bit about Rok of the Reds? JW: To escape galactic assassins, mighty alien shape-changer Rok of the Arkadii flees to the far reaches of the galaxy – the planet Earth - where to conceal himself he assumes the identity of the first human he encounters – bad boy footballer Kyle Dixon.   In this identity Rok develops a deep fascination with the game – a fascination that may end in death as his pursuers are hot on his tail. GG: There’s a long tradition of football themed comic books that came out of the UK. Do you see this as a continuation of that tradition?...

The Indie Index - Interview with Chris Gooch

01 1
Hey there, loyal readers! I'm deeply sorry that The Indie Index has been quiet for the past month. Christmas, holidays, work and all of the other usual things got in the way of publishing more pieces for you to read. Never fear though, we're back with an interview with none other than, Chris Gooch! Please introduce yourself to the readers who may not know who you are yet. Hello, my name is Chris Gooch and I live in Melbourne and spend most of my life drawing and writing comics.  Where do you draw your inspiration from?  Movies are my favourite thing so they’re probably the biggest influence on my work - particularly when it comes to pacing, framing and story structure. My favourite films in the past couple of years have been ones that fall apart as they go on, sort of collapsing under the weight of all the great...
