Regrettably, we now bring you the next inside look into our Gothic comic anthology series, Gothology: Theatre of Tragedy. In case you missed it, part one in this series explored Kate “Poj” Greenseth‘s Gothology comic, The Artist’s Lament.
This time, we are going to explore something the people have been dying (even more than usual) to see. The cover art for Theatre of Tragedy. It was illustrated by Mr. Sheldon Vella — and our brother from another and artist for Marvel’s Deadpool. We go a ways back with Sheldon, and have become pretty good friends with him. Hell, we even split a table with Sheldon at Wizard World Chicago Comic-Con a couple of years back. It was there Jack and I had the master plan (or more like an inside joke) to seduce Sheldon into contributing to Gothology by hitting his jealousy bone, and constantly brag about how awesome James Stokoe is.
Turns out, that “master plan” wasn’t needed, as Sheldon was really receptive to the idea of jumping into Gothic comics. He told us there is always dying to do comics for fun, and would love to do something for our comic anthology series. So, we took him up on it, and BAM, now we have another awesome Gothology cover. Speaking of which, here is the cover of Theatre of Tragedy — in all of its unholy Gothic glory.
The debut of the very dark Theatre of Tragedy cover… not counting the fact we’ve been using a WIP version as promo art here and a few Gothic sites for a while… or that we posted it on our deviantART account yesterday.
